Periodontal Disease Treatment in Cary
Periodontal disease is a condition that occurs if plaque buildup and gingivitis is left untreated. Gums become inflamed, red and may bleed when flossing or brushing teeth. As gingivitis gets worse it can lead to periodontal disease or periodontitis. Periodontal disease can cause receding gums and possible tooth loss. Bad breath, pockets around teeth, gum and dental pain are also symptoms of periodontitis. If left untreated periodontitis can damage bones and tissues surrounding teeth that can produce conditions for tooth loss. Patients may notice pain when eating, teeth out of alignment, gums receding and sore or sensitive teeth. Look no further than Zen Triangle Dentistry for periodontal disease treatment in Cary, NC.

There are both surgical and non-surgical treatments for periodontal disease. Non-surgical options include deep-cleaning or scaling to remove plaque and tarter, root planing which evens the root of the tooth and treatment with antibiotics, normally doxycycline is prescribed. Surgical options include flap surgery that is performed to reduce gaps around affected teeth and grafts of tissue or bone to introduce regeneration of damaged areas.
