Periodontists are dentists who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. They are experts in placing dental implants and providing treatment of oral inflammation. As specialists, they are aware of the latest periodontal procedures. You may book an appointment with one of our periodontists at our dental clinics in Durham and Oshawa!
Scaling and Root Planning: This is a non-surgical procedure that focuses on removing plaque deposits on the root and root surfaces. The dentist ensures the infected surface of the root is cleaned entirely.
Medicine: Our dentists may prescribe medications in the form of pills or mouth rinse to aid the infection, pain, and healing. These medications may be available at your closest pharmacy.
Surgery: If your case gets more severe, surgical interventions may be recommended. The most common surgical procedures include flap surgery and bone and tissue grafts. Surgery lets the dentist reach hard to access areas under the gums and along the roots, where plaque has accumulated.
