Periodontal Treatment in Pickering, Ontario
At Brockington Dental Centre, we’ll thoroughly examine your gums and teeth before deciding if periodontal therapy is necessary. If gum disease is detected, therapy helps to eliminate or at least minimize the infection on your gumline. Periodontal therapy involves a number of dental methods, such as local medication, curettage, and root planing. Curettage is the removal of infected gum tissues to allow for proper healing, while root planing is the process of eliminating and smoothing out your root surfaces. Local medication may also be injected into the sites to prevent the spread of the infection. These procedures are often done together and are performed by our experienced hygienist. However, if non-surgical gum therapy is not enough, we will recommend you to a periodontist who can surgically remove your infected gum areas so proper healing can occur. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of gum disease.
