Periodontal Therapy in Chaparral, Calgary

Have you noticed your gums are receding or that your teeth appear longer? Feel like your teeth are shifting or may be loose? You may be suffering from a very common dental condition known as periodontal gum disease. In fact, 7 out of 10 Canadians will experience periodontal gum disease at some point in their life. During the early stage of periodontal gum disease, known as gingivitis, the condition can actually be completely reversed and cured. However, once the condition has progressed the symptoms can only be managed going forward.

About Our Calgary Periodontal Therapy

At Chaparral Valley Dental we are proud to offer various periodontal therapy options for our patients that are suffering from the condition. These treatment options include curettage, tooth scaling, root planing, and even medication. Curettage involves removing the infected gum tissue to allow the gums to heal properly. Tooth scaling and root planing involves using specialized tools to remove any buildup on the teeth and root surfaces, allowing the gums to properly re-attach and heal. Certain medications such as antibiotics may also be used to directly treat any infection of the gums.

Patients that neglect to receive treatment for their periodontal gum disease often face more serious complications down the road, including tooth shifting, tooth misalignment, and even tooth loss. Serious infections can also occur from untreated gum disease, resulting in more costly treatments. Schedule an appointment with Chaparral Valley Dental today to start managing your periodontal gum disease.

  • Early gum disease treatment can reverse and cure gingivitis.
  • Periodontal gum disease treatment can reduce your risk of additional complications.
  • Periodontal therapy can reduce your risk of tooth shifting, tooth misalignment, and even tooth loss.
