Periodontal (Gum) Treatment in Dublin, OH

Periodontal Treatment

Regular dental cleaning and exams is the only way to prevent periodontal disease, better known as gum disease. But if diagnosed, Emerald Smiles can help you treat it quickly and effectively.

Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria that form from the build-up of plaque on teeth. This early stage is called gingivitis and can be recognized by red and swollen gums. If not treated, the infection can spread into pockets between the gum and teeth causing bone and tissue loss. In severe cases periodontal disease could increase your risk of heart disease.

At Emerald Smiles, we treat periodontal disease by removing plaque and calculus deposits beneath the gum line to allow the gum to heal. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to treat the infection. Depending on the stage of the disease, further treatment may be necessary. We will discuss your options with you and jointly choose the right path to full recovery.
