Keep Free From Gum Disease
Gum disease is a common problem with implications beyond your dental health. The bacteria that cause gum disease can lead to heart disease and other systemic health issues. Your best chance of preventing these is by maintaining good oral care—brushing and flossing regularly—and by visiting us here at Bonita Del Rey Dental Care for routine checkups.
Should you develop gum disease, we offer services such as scaling and root planning, osseous surgery, and periodontal maintenance to help you regain your health. These are just a few of the many dental services that we, as a general dental practice, are able to offer you in one convenient Chula Vista, CA dental clinic.
We Can Rebuild Your Jaw Through Bone Grafting
Phase of Gum Disease Treatment
Scaling And Root Planing
The first phase of gum disease treatment usually involves scaling and root planing. With scaling, we use delicate dental instruments to remove bacteria and signs of infection from beneath your gumline. During root planing our team eliminates any plaque or tartar buildup from your tooth roots, smoothening them and enabling the surrounding gum tissue to easily reconnect to the tooth. When your tooth root is smooth it’s less likely to promote bacteria growth. Both of these gum disease treatments can restore your gum health and even leave your breath smelling better!
Osseous Surgery (Advanced Cases)
If you have an advanced level of gum disease, we may need to perform osseous surgery. This is where we take away a portion of your gums and sometimes the jawbone to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar from your tooth roots. We then restore the surgical site using tissue grafts from your own body. Your gums should be fully healed within a few weeks of your osseous surgery.
After your gum disease treatment, we recommend that you return to our Chula Vista, CA dental office at regularly scheduled intervals for periodontal maintenance. Through deep cleaning, and additional scaling and root planing (if needed), we can prevent gum disease from taking hold again in the future. Be sure to keep all your appointments to avoid further issues with your gums.
