Periodontal Care for Healthy Gums and Teeth

Welcome to Relax Dental, where we proudly offer specialized periodontal care, a dental specialty exclusively focused on addressing the inflammatory disease that affects the gums and supporting structures around your teeth. Our High Point office is equipped to provide you with comprehensive periodontal treatments that prioritize the health of your gums and help you maintain a strong foundation for your teeth.

Understanding Periodontics

Periodontics is a vital dental specialty that centers on preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions related to gum disease. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a progressive condition that, if left untreated, can lead to the destruction of gum tissue, tooth loss, and other serious oral health issues.

Our Approach to Periodontal Treatment

At Relax Dental, our experienced periodontal team is dedicated to delivering the highest quality care to preserve the health and integrity of your gums and teeth. We offer a range of periodontal treatments to address various stages of gum disease, including:

  1. Scaling and Root Planing: This deep cleaning procedure is designed to remove plaque and tartar buildup from below the gumline, helping to control gum inflammation and prevent further progression of the disease.
  2. Periodontal Surgery: In advanced cases, surgical intervention may be necessary. Our skilled periodontists perform procedures such as gum grafts, pocket reduction surgery, and bone regeneration to restore gum health and promote tissue regeneration.
  3. Maintenance and Follow-Up: After treatment, we emphasize the importance of regular follow-up appointments to monitor your gum health and ensure the success of the treatment plan. Our team will provide you with personalized guidance on maintaining optimal oral hygiene practices at home.

Benefits of Periodontal Care

Periodontal care offers numerous benefits that contribute to your overall oral health and well-being:

  • Gum Health: Effective periodontal care helps prevent and manage gum disease, reducing the risk of gum tissue damage and tooth loss.
  • Strong Teeth: By maintaining healthy gums, you provide a solid foundation for your teeth, enhancing their stability and longevity.
  • Improved Aesthetics: Healthy gums contribute to an attractive smile, and periodontal treatments can address cosmetic concerns related to gum recession or uneven gum lines.
