Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. Healthy gums are vital to maintaining your teeth. Advancements in non-surgical periodontal treatment have made great progress. At Seton Dental Care we use state-of-the-art ultrasonic scalers for periodontal treatment. Another great development is the use of Antibiotics directly placed in the gums. By placing antibiotics below the gum line we can often see improvement in the gum tissue and avoid the need for periodontal surgery.

Your periodontal health is a serious issue and should not be taken lightly. Proper at home dental hygiene practices like regularly brushing and flossing are important to your dental health. Additionally it is important that you remember to come to the office for your dental cleanings and routine exams as recommended. This way if a problem is starting to develop we can begin treating it in the early stages and avoid more costly and perhaps uncomfortable treatment down the road. If you do have a periodontal problem we will make every effort to help you control your periodontal disease problem non-surgically. We will periodically reevaluate to determine the effectiveness of the treatment. Should surgical periodontal treatment be required we will help you with that as well.
