Periodontics is the Treatment of Gum Disease
At Schuman Center Dental Aesthetics, we’re experts in advanced periodontics therapies, such as root planing and scaling, gum grafting, sinus lifting and bone grafting.
In many cases, we can even provide the revolutionary Pinhole® Surgical Technique. This modern approach to periodontics involves creating a tiny hole to shift gum tissue down to cover an exposed root. For those who are a candidate for this approach, there’s no grafting or cutting of gum tissue, and recovery time is much shorter.
Scheduling regular dental visits can help prevent gum disease.
Are your gums reddened, inflamed, or irritated?
These signs of gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis) can progress when left untreated, causing:
Red or swollen gums
Persistent bad breath
Pus surrounding your teeth
You can prevent gum disease
Most cases of gum disease are caused by poor dental hygiene. You can prevent gum disease (and even treat it in its early stages) by:
Brushing your teeth regularly (and with proper technique)
Using an antiseptic mouth rinse (to kill germs in hard-to-reach places)
