Periodontal therapy - Shifa Dental

Our Periodontal Therapy Dental Services

Expert periodontal dental care in Plano, TX

To put it simply, periodontal diseases cause gum problems. These problems, once caught, are very difficult to treat. Periodontists help their patients by reducing or eliminating periodontal diseases. Periodontists receive additional training in performing surgical as well as non-surgical therapies to cure their patients’ oral problems.

At Shifa Dental in Plano, we have the best-in-class periodontists who have tons of experience in carrying out these dental care therapies. They have received education from renowned universities, and they are completely aware of each and every periodontal problem. They have been acknowledged and appreciated by several organizations for their expertise. Patients refer others to experience the absolute perfection of our periodontal dental services for all their periodontal problems.

Non-Surgical Dental Care Options

At Shifa Dental, we provide non-surgical dental care treatments, laser treatment, gum graft surgery, dental crown lengthening, plastic surgery procedures, regenerative procedures, dental implants, and pocket reduction procedures.

If a patient can be cured without surgery, we will give priority to non-surgical procedures. Non-surgical procedures include scaling and root planning, tray delivery systems. In the scaling and root planning procedure, our trusted Plano periodontists will clean the root of the tooth in order to remove harmful substances, such as tartar. This careful cleaning usually eliminates the requirement for surgery. Of course, patients must continue visiting their Plano dentist to monitor the health of their teeth and roots. In tray delivery systems, patients transfer the periodontists-prescribed medications to their mouth via a customized tray. Other than these dental care methods, your periodontist may recommend using night-guards and bite-guards as part of nonsurgical treatment.

Surgical Dental Care Options

Our Plano periodontists use surgical dental care procedures to reduce the space between teeth and their gums, to prepare the gums for implants, to reproduce soft as well as hard tissues, to fill indentations, to increase the surface of teeth, and to prepare your jaw for any other surgical process.

To figure out which periodontal therapy will work best for you, make an appointment with the Plano dental care experts today at Shifa Dental.

1What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, is characterised by plaque accumulation on the tooth's surface at the gum line. If plaque is not eliminated consistently by brushing and flossing, it might harden into tartar, as defined by your dentist. Plaque will continue to accumulate on top of tartar, causing the gums to become red, swollen, and inflamed. Gingivitis, or gum disease, is the earliest stage of periodontal disease. Gingivitis can progress to periodontal disease if left untreated.
2What are the symptoms of periodontal diseases?
  • Red, swollen, sore gums
  • Gums that bleed when brushing and flossing
  • Teeth that appear longer or become loose
  • Large spaces that form between the teeth
  • Gums that begin to pull away from the teeth
  • Chronic bad breath

If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to other health issues such as heart disease and diabetes. Periodontal disease is connected to early birth and low birth weight in pregnant women. The state of your smile has an impact on your overall health.
3Is periodontal disease treatable ?
Gum disease can be prevented and treated. Today's periodontal treatments provide you a wide range of mild, safe, and successful solutions. If you have gingivitis or gum disease, a periodontist can help you figure out which treatment option is right for you.

Treatments for periodontal disease include:
  • Non-surgical treatment
  • Periodontal surgery
  • Periodontal therapy
  • Dental implants
  • At-home care (special toothpaste, mouthwash, toothbrushes, and prescription treatment trays)
