What Periodontal Treatments Are Performed At Dos Caminos Dental?
Whether you have been diagnosed with gingivitis or periodontitis, Dr. Ali Soltanirad (Dr. Rad) and his team of professionals at Dos Caminos Dental in Camarillo, California, can work with you to find a gum disease treatment that meets your needs. Instead of dealing with bleeding and receding gums, you can seek treatment to reduce the symptoms and successfully manage the condition.
Below are a few of the options available at our practice:
- Deep professional cleaning
This is often the first step to treating periodontal disease. A deep professional cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar, which can help reduce the signs of gum disease, such as gingivitis and bleeding
Dr. Ali Soltanirad (Dr. Rad) may recommend antibiotics if your gum tissue has become infected due to bacteria that have built up in your mouth. Antibiotic treatments for periodontal disease can come in the form of a topical gel or an oral medication
- Scaling and root planing
In some cases, our team at Dos Caminos Dental may need to perform scaling and root planing on those suffering from advanced gum disease (periodontitis). Scaling removes plaque and tartar below the gum line, while root planing smooths out rough patches on the tooth surfaces
- Soft tissue grafts
If you have bleeding and receding gums due to periodontal disease, we can help restore them by performing soft-tissue grafting. This procedure involves taking healthy gum tissue from another area in your mouth and placing it over the affected area. This protects your teeth from further damage and improves the esthetics of your smile
- Periodontal maintenance
As part of our commitment to helping you maintain a healthy smile, we may recommend periodic maintenance appointments following treatment for periodontal disease. These follow-ups are vital to ensuring any existing infection is managed, and that new bacteria are not forming under your gum line
