Carmichael dental office
If you want to have a beautiful smile with healthy teeth, it is also important that you have healthy gums. At our dental practice, Upen J Patel, DDS, our expert dentist can provide you with a periodontal treatment at our Carmichael dental office
if your gums need to be restored to good health; if gum disease is not treated it can cause tooth loss and other medical problems.
When patients have problems with their gums, our top-notch dentist, Dr. Upen J. Patel, can provide them with periodontal treatments to help the gums become healthy once again. When tartar remains on teeth for an extended period of time, it will cause deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. When this occurs, plaque, tartar, food debris, and bacteria will all gather in the deep pockets and the patient will have a serious case of gum disease. Gum disease will never go away by itself. It needs to be treated with periodontal treatments at our Carmichael dental office. When deep pockets have formed, a scaling and root planing treatment is often extremely effective in helping the gums to heal. During this treatment, all materials are removed from the deep pockets between the teeth and gums. Our dentist may even provide local antibiotic treatment if infection is present. Hopefully, this treatment will cause the pocket depths to become reduced, and the gums will be well on their way to healing. This treatment may need to be repeated. If it is not successful, periodontal surgery may be necessary. In cases when a patient has gingivitis, and inflammation of the gums has occurred without deep pockets having formed, several regular dental cleanings may be all that is needed to have the gums return to excellent condition.
