The best Periodontal Therapy in Buckhead
Gum disease or periodontal disease is a common problem. It is an infection of the tissues supporting your teeth, and it can lead to tooth loss if not treated properly. In fact, gum disease has been linked to nearly all chronic adult diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that forms a plaque on your teeth when not adequately removed with brushing and flossing. If left untreated, the bacteria in plaque will eventually cause damage that results in inflammation of the gums around your teeth (gingivitis) and ultimately bone loss around your teeth.
Here at Buckhead Dental Center the therapy could consist of ultrasonic scaling (a device utilized for the removal of calculus, stain, and bacterial toxins on teeth utilizing the principle of high frequency vibration), hand scaling (a procedure in which the dentist utilizes an instrument to scale or polish tooth surfaces).
