periodontal care

Periodontal care is a critical component for not only your oral health, but your overall well-being. Many patients unknowingly neglect their gum care, due to being unable to come in for visits, or because they don’t know how to care for their teeth and gums. Prevention with routine cleanings and examinations are key, but sometimes patients need further periodontal care to get their mouth health back.

gum disease & periodontal care

If your gum health has declined, the team at Smiles on Randolph will diagnose the proper treatment for you. Before we can determine that you need periodontal care, we will need to evaluate the health of your mouth. The first steps of gum care (if you are a patient that needs periodontal therapy) starts with scaling and root planing. A hygienist will remove tartar buildup and bacteria from below the gumline to clean out the periodontal pockets between your teeth and gums. 

Our team will ensure you are comfortable throughout this procedure. If you are prone to sensitivity, there are topical and injectable anesthetics to ensure your comfort. We will also keep you comfortable with pillows and blankets, and will answer any and all questions prior to the procedure.
