Professional Periodontal Treatment

Gum, or periodontal disease can cause inflammation, called gingivitis, tooth loss and bone damage. Gum disease ranges from mild gingivitis to moderate and severe periodontitis. Gum disease begins with a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. Gums in the early stage of disease, or gingivitis, can bleed easily and become red and swollen. As the disease progresses to periodontitis, teeth may loosen, fall out or may need to be removed by a dentist.

Gum disease can be prevented with good oral hygiene by daily brushing and flossing. Regular checkups will help detect gum disease in the early stages when it can be most successfully treated.

We Serve Patients from all over the Santa Clarita Valley Area.

Our Oral Surgeons  provide the latest in periodontal care, including:

• Comprehensive gum evaluation at each dental health maintenance appointment
• Digital x-rays to detect bone changes
• Dental prophylaxis (cleaning)
• If needed we recommend a Deep cleaning (root planing)
• Periodontal Maintenance After Treatment

Introducing Perio Protect for Effective Gum Disease Treatment

Perio Protect gum disease treatment tray

Are you struggling with gum disease and searching for a more effective and comfortable treatment? Look no further than Perio Protect—a revolutionary approach to managing gum disease that combines professional dental care with innovative home treatment.

What is Perio Protect?

Perio Protect offers a comprehensive solution for gum disease by integrating regular dental cleanings with the use of the Perio Tray®—a specially designed device that delivers medication right to the source of the problem. The Perio Tray, similar to a mouthguard but with a unique sealing system, allows you to administer medication to the pockets between your teeth and gums from the comfort of your home. This easy-to-use system helps combat the bacteria that cause gum disease, making your treatment both effective and convenient.

How Does the Perio Protect Tray Work?

The Perio Tray’s innovative design features internal seals that deliver medication directly to the infected areas beneath your gum line. Here’s how it works:

  1. Customized Fit: Your dentist or hygienist will take impressions of your mouth to create a custom Perio Tray tailored to your specific needs.
  2. Medication Application: You simply place the prescribed medication into the tray and wear it for a few minutes each day.
  3. Effective Treatment: The seal created by the tray ensures that medication is forced into the pockets between your teeth and gums, effectively targeting the bacteria causing your gum disease.

This targeted treatment approach helps reduce inflammation, manage infections, and promote gum healing.

Why Choose Perio Protect?

Perio Protect stands out as an effective gum disease treatment for several reasons:

  • Comfortable and Non-Invasive: Unlike traditional gum disease treatments that may require surgery or systemic antibiotics, Perio Protect offers a comfortable, minimally invasive alternative.
  • Enhanced Home Care: The Perio Tray reaches areas below the gum line that are difficult to clean with brushing and flossing alone, providing a more thorough treatment of periodontal disease.
  • Easy to Use: With simple daily application, Perio Protect makes it easy to manage your gum health at home. Just add the medication to the tray, wear it as directed, and let the Perio Tray do the work.
  • Ongoing Management: While Perio Protect helps manage gum disease, it also keeps your breath fresh and your teeth looking great.

What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a specialist who takes care of your oral health like a dentist. A periodontist’s specific focus is on treating and preventing gum disease, which is crucial to maintaining a high oral health level. A periodontist may be necessary if you have problems with your gums, as they can help you treat the issue and get you back on track towards excellent oral health in general.

What is Periodontal Maintenance?

Periodontal health takes maintenance, just like your teeth and other parts of the body. Beyond just brushing your teeth, you also need periodontal cleaning for periodontal care. A periodontist will examine your mouth at a periodontal maintenance appointment and determine a potential treatment plan. Treatment would address any care needed by your gums and possibly implants if your gum damage and disease were causing issues for your teeth as well.

Benefits of Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal therapy is something that your periodontist or gum doctor might suggest to help mitigate the damage of gum disease. This therapy can help address an infection, decrease pain, and even adjust the way that you bite. You can even have laser periodontal therapy done to help your gums if you need a little extra boost. These treatments can help you function more fully and happily and keep you feeling good about your smile knowing that you have the care you need to stay healthy.

What Does a Periodontist Do to Prevent & Treat Gum Disease?

A periodontist will do a variety of things to help prevent and treat gum disease. First, they can provide an assessment to see if you have or are at risk for gum disease. In addition, they can offer you access to periodontal services like cleanings, periodontics, and dental implants. You can talk to your periodontist about any concerns you have and make sure you understand your oral health problems.

Periodontist FAQs

What Causes Periodontal (Gum) Disease?

Like most oral diseases, gum disease is caused by bacteria trapped in your mouth, which can grow and spread over time. With the help of a periodontal doctor, you can catch gum disease early so that you can start treatment and prevention as soon as possible. It is always better to treat gum disease in its earlier stages, as bacteria spread throughout the mouth are harder to treat. 

What can I do to prevent periodontal disease?

The best thing you can do to prevent periodontal disease is to practice good oral hygiene. Even just brushing your teeth and flossing regularly can help you to avoid issues that might require a major intervention like a gum graft or surgical periodontics. If you are worried about potential issues with gum disease, talk to your dentist or periodontist about your concerns.
