Introduction: Periodontal Surgical & Non- Surgical Services
Our practice provides a variety of surgical and non-surgical services. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are very conservative in our treatment recommendations and limit surgery to the areas where it is absolutely necessary.
The conservative approach we take with regards to treating periodontal disease revolves around proven periodontal principles. After completing our initial evaluation and determining the need for treatment, unless otherwise indicated, we begin Initial Therapy. This typically will involve Scaling and Root Planing (deep cleaning). In certain circumstances we will consider the use of adjuncts such as antibiotic therapy.
After completion of Initial Therapy, we will provide a follow-up evaluation to determine the level of improvement. If areas remain that need further treatment, it is then that surgical therapy is recommended.
Once periodontal health is achieved, patients typically begin Periodontal Maintenance which consists of follow-up hygiene appointments every 3 months.
