What is Gum Disease?

Periodontal disease is caused by a buildup of bacteria around the teeth, below the gum line. The bacteria can cause serious problems to the structures surrounding the teeth. The symptoms of periodontal disease include bleeding gums when brushing or flossing, persistent bad breath, swollen gum tissue, and teeth becoming loose.

Treatment for Periodontal Disease

Professional therapies are required to treat gum disease. The specific treatment that is needed depends on the severity of the disease. The problem can often be treated with non-surgical solutions. Our goal is to provide conservative treatment for gum disease in West Palm Beach to help you maintain a healthier, brighter smile.

The treatment options for periodontal disease include:

  • Sonicare - Using a Sonicare toothbrush every day offers deep cleaning in hard to reach areas. This toothbrush has been clinically proven to reduce gingivitis and remove more plaque than a regular toothbrush.
  • Oraquix – This needle-free anesthesia method is used during scaling and root planing procedures to reduce pain. This is the first and only FDA approved needle-free subgingival anesthetic for use in periodontal pockets during procedures for gum disease treatment.
  • Arestin – This is used with scaling and root planing to reduce pocket depth in adults with periodontitis.
  • Peridex – Peridex oral rinse is a preventative care oral rinse that is used to help patients regain optimal oral health.
  • Tooth Tonic – The natural product contains no alcohol, sweeteners, or chemical preservatives.
  • Fluoride – Fluoride toothpastes and rinses, such as Vanish, ControlRX, and SootheRX offer prescription therapy to control plaque and decay.

The right treatment depends on the severity and progression of the disease. We periodontists try to use the most conservative approach to treatment possible, while meeting the unique needs of each patient. We begin with a comprehensive exam to assess the condition of the gums and recommend the most effective treatment for your specific needs.
