The main cause of periodontal disease is bacteria in the form of a sticky colourless plaque that constantly forms on your teeth; however, many other factors can cause periodontal disease or influence its progression.
Periodontal health should be achieved in the least invasive and most cost-effective manner. This is often accomplished through non-surgical periodontal treatment which includes meticulous oral hygiene measures, debridement and root planing (a careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus from deep periodontal pockets and to smooth the tooth root to remove bacterial toxins), with adjunctive therapy such as local delivery of antimicrobials or use of the Waterlase MD.
In a majority of cases, patients having undergone a course of non-surgical initial periodontal treatment do not require further active treatment. However, the patients normally require ongoing maintenance therapy to sustain health. Non-surgical therapy does have its limitations however, and when it does not achieve periodontal health, periodontal surgery may be indicated to restore periodontal anatomy damaged by periodontal diseases and to facilitate oral hygiene practices.
If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, the periodontist may recommend periodontal surgery. Periodontal surgery is necessary when the periodontist determines that the tissue around your teeth is unhealthy and cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment alone. The main four types of periodontal surgical treatments prescribed are:
Pocket Reduction Surgery
Soft Tissue Grafts
Laser Assisted Full Mouth Non-Surgical Treatment
Surgical Periodontal Treatment
