Did you know that the health of your gums is closely tied to your overall health? It’s true! Research has found a close connection between periodontal disease and serious health conditions such as heart disease, respiratory conditions, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and pregnancy complications. Untreated gum disease can also result in gum tissue recession, tooth loss, and bone loss.
Here at VIP Smiles, Doctors Shad, Richard, and Clive Ingram offer periodontal treatments to help you regain a healthy smile and improve your overall well-being. Call our Syracuse dental office today to schedule a consultation and learn more!
We strive to help you stay in good health by providing high-quality dental care, such periodontal treatments, which can include a number of services used to treat periodontal disease. Depending on your specific case and the severity of the condition, treatment for gum disease may include:
- Additional professional teeth cleanings
- Improved at-home oral hygiene and care
- Antibiotic treatment
- Deep cleanings, also known as scaling and root planing
Deep cleanings such as scaling and root planing are one of the most targeted treatments for more serious cases of gum disease. The aim of scaling and root planing is to remove bacteria and infected tissues from your teeth and gums, as well as prevent the condition from progressing further. For more serious cases, our dentists may suggest gum surgery. We are committed to helping you keep your smile healthy.
