Periodontal Therapy for Bowie, MD
Gum Disease Treatment
At Ambiance Dental Spa, we take gum disease very seriously. Why? Gum disease isn’t just an uncomfortable problem. If left untreated, it can cause extensive damage in a number of ways. Late-stage gum disease can lead to tooth loss, and the bacteria from your infection can enter your bloodstream, leading to systemic health problems such as heart disease and stroke. Ambiance Dental Spa offers periodontal therapy for gum disease, keeping this serious problem under control and protecting you from extensive health complications.
Scaling and Root Planing
Periodontal therapy consists of scaling and root planing. First, the infected area is cleaned, and we remove all infected tissue along with the debris that contributes to gum disease. Then we smooth out the tooth root, removing spaces where more bacteria or debris could take hold. During your periodontal therapy in our Bowie dental office, relax in one of our massage chairs to make the experience more comfortable.
How to Prevent Gum Disease?
You can prevent gum disease by brushing and flossing daily, using antiseptic mouthwashes, and visiting Ambiance Dental Spa every six months for a professional dental cleaning and checkup.
