If you have noticed that your gums are red and swollen or bleed easily, you may be suffering from periodontal, or gum, disease. Dr. Jeremy Borsky and the rest of our team are committed to providing effective gum disease treatments in order to restore your oral health. When you visit us, Dr. Borsky will carefully evaluate your teeth and gums and will help determine which periodontal treatment is best for you. When periodontal disease is caught in the early stages, it is possible to halt or even reverse the effects. We invite you to call us to learn more about periodontal therapy in Anderson Township, Ohio, and schedule your appointment with our caring dentist.
The standard for treating gum disease is through scaling and root planing, a procedure proven to stop gum disease from worsening. Scaling involves the process of removing plaque and tartar above and below the gum line. Through root planing, we can promote the reattachment of the tooth roots to the gums. Both of these techniques are performed in tandem over the next several appointments. Dr. Borsky makes sure to keep you comfortable during your appointment however possible.
While scaling and root planing are effective, the gums can only handle so much treatment in a given time. This is why we recommend routine follow-up appointments every three to four months to keep your gums healthy while also giving them time to heal after treatment. During your follow-up appointments, we’ll confirm that treatment is effective. If needed, we’ll make adjustments to your treatment plan and discuss your options going forward.
