Periodontal therapy and maintenance is an area of dentistry focused on prevention, diagnosis and disease treatment of the surrounding tissues of the teeth and implants. This area of dentistry includes maintenance of oral health, function, and esthetics of the supporting structures and tissues. In some cases treatments may include the administration of intravenous conscious sedation.
Periodontal examinations are designed to evaluate the health of the supporting tissues and to detect non-periodontal oral diseases and conditions. Once a comprehensive examination is completed a diagnosis can be determined and a treatment or therapy plan can be outlined and administered based on individual need.
Periodontal therapy treatments and maintenance may require repeat visits and follow up appointments, however, as part of our comprehensive screenings and examinations our dentist will take the time to educate you once a diagnosis has been determined in order to make sure you have full understanding and all the relevant information necessary regarding the periodontal treatments required.
