What Is Periodontal Care And Why Do I Need It?

a woman at the dentist

Though periodontal treatment is mainly concerned with your gum health, it's actually closely tied to your overall oral health. Why? Everything is connected.

If you have gum disease, then your teeth and bone tissue can also be affected, leading to loose or missing teeth in more advanced cases, and even bone loss later down the line. To prevent or minimize these problems when gum disease is present — and even potentially reverse gingivitis in its early stages — you may need periodontal care.

Even if your gum disease has progressed into periodontitis, we can still help you treat and manage your condition. At our practice, your options can range from laser gum surgery, to scaling and root planing, to soft tissue grafting — and our Jackson dentists are happy to guide you through them during a consultation.
