Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal Therapy in Pooler, GA

Periodontal therapy is the non-surgical treatment of gum disease. Plaque and tartar can build up on teeth even below the gumline, and when it’s not removed, there is a greater chance of decay and tooth loss. Routine cleanings, scaling and root planing eliminate this buildup, and ensure the gums have a clean tooth surface to reattach to as it’s healing. Without periodontal therapy, we are subject to advanced, and even permanent, stages of oral decay and tooth loss. Godley Station Dental recommends that patients of all ages attend at least two wellness exams and cleanings per year to maintain the effects of periodontal disease.

Scaling & Root Planing

Plaque and tartar can build up on the surfaces of the teeth below the gumline. This accumulation occurs as the gums recede and pockets form, allowing plaque and bacteria to enter. Scaling, also known as “deep cleaning,” eliminates these hidden build-ups. Root planing smooths out rough spots that affect the tooth root. By removing the roughened areas, the dentist can get rid of bacteria hiding in these crevices.

Gum Disease Specialist

Left untreated, gum disease is a prolonged infection that will gradually destroy the support structure of your natural teeth. This can affect the periodontal tissues, destroying the structural integrity of your teeth and gums. Godley Station Dental is proud to have experienced Gum Disease Specialists on their team to treat this dangerous disease from the first signs of decay, and forward.

Dental Implants

If you experience oral trauma that periodontal therapy cannot treat, your dentist may recommend a more permanent solution such as dental implants. Implants replicate the appearance and function of your natural smile. They can withstand wear and tear better than any other dental restorative technique, and they require the same daily care as your natural teeth.
