Periodontal Treatments in Tampa

Lack of proper dental hygiene can have negative effects on your oral and overall health. A build-up of bacteria in the mouth can lead to inflammation of the gums, causing a periodontal infection. At Modern Day Smiles, we believe that early intervention is key to the treatment of dental problems. We offer a variety of comprehensive treatment options to restore and maintain your periodontal health.

Gum disease generally occurs in two stages. The first stage, called gingivitis, generally starts out as an accumulation of plaque that irritates the gums. Gingivitis can be treated by maintaining proper oral hygiene and bi-annual dental visits for checkups and cleanings. A deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing can also help to restore gum health affected by gingivitis. The advanced stage of gum infection, also known as periodontitis, occurs when the infection is left untreated and reaches the supporting bone and tissues. If treatment is not administered, this can cause irreversible damage to the oral structures, causing tooth and bone loss.

Some of the common signs of periodontal disease include red, inflamed, sore and bleeding gums, as well as gum recession along the tooth. If you notice blood in your saliva when you brush your teeth, this may be an indication of gum disease; however, it is also possible you may have gum disease with no signs at all. Maintaining proper oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing daily, along with regular dental visits will help you to maintain good dental health and prevent gum disease from occurring or progressing.

  • Scaling and Root Planing
