You’ve just found out you have Periodontal Disease. Now What?
Don’t worry! The most important thing is knowing about your condition and having a knowledgeable and experienced dental team to get your gums back to optimal health! The Advanced Dental Care team in Costa Mesa, CA has the solutions for you!
Periodontal Disease is an active bacterial infection of the gum tissue in our mouth. Once bacteria has burrowed in between our gum tissue and teeth it begins to flourish. This bacteria inflames our gums and eats away at the bone holding our teeth in place. No good! Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to more systemic inflammation, infections, and eventual tooth loss. At Advanced Dental Care, we provide same day diagnosis and treatment of Periodontal Disease. This may include a combination of Scaling and Root Planing (SRP), Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR), and Oral Irrigation.
You may have not heard of Scaling and Root Planing (SRP), sometimes called a “deep cleaning”. You are not alone! RDH Misty Rey answers all of your questions about Scaling and Root Planing. (more…)
