What are the benefits of periodontal therapy?


Periodontal therapy provides many benefits for patients, including:

  • Improves the look and feel of gums
  • Prevents or reduces gum bleeding
  • Freshens breath; removes odor-causing bacteria
  • Prevents tooth, gum, and jawbone loss
  • Helps prevent additional health issues from developing

How do I know if I need periodontal therapy?

If your gums are red, swollen, and very sensitive, or if you notice your gums frequently bleed when you brush your teeth, you may have gingivitis or periodontitis. The only way to receive a confirmed diagnosis is by visiting an experienced dentist who can assess your teeth and gums. While patients without gum disease typically only need to visit their dentist twice per year, patients with periodontal disease may need to schedule additional appointments for deep cleanings and assessments.

What periodontal services do I need?

If you are still in the early stages of gum disease, a thorough professional teeth cleaning and enhanced at-home oral care routine may be enough to restore your gum health. Our office also performs scaling and root planing treatments, which remove the built-up plaque and tartar beneath the gum line and help the gums reattach to the front of the teeth. In more advanced cases, surgical treatments like gum grafts or bone grafts are necessary to restore a patient’s smile.


Is periodontal therapy covered by insurance?

Since periodontal therapy is considered necessary for restoring a patient’s oral health, many insurance plans offer coverage for treatment. Our practice also offers a variety of flexible financing options, including CareCredit™ and GreenSky®, to make our services more accessible and affordable. To learn more about our financing options, we recommend visiting our new patient page or contacting our team directly.
