Periodontist in Atlanta

Lack of dental care has been linked to several serious medical conditions including heart and gum disease. It is important to take the necessary precautions to prevent these dangerous conditions. At Dr. Colin Richman in Atlanta, periodontal therapy offers a solution to what can turn into a severe problem.

The best prevention of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is consistent care for your teeth at home and regular visits to the dentist. Taking good care of your mouth will lead to a healthier body overall.

Symptoms and Causes of Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease occurs when the gums and the gum’s bone structure are inflamed, due to dental plague bacteria. The disease most likely begins with gingivitis, a mild form of periodontal disease. The body puts up resistance to fight off the disease, and is often unsuccessful. The underlying bone structure is destroyed, and the teeth become loose, and bacteria accumulate in the open pockets, ultimately resulting in tooth loss.

The most effective dental treatment to fight periodontal disease is Periodontal Therapy treatment options. At Dr. Colin Richman in Atlanta, GA we categorize periodontal disease, and treatment methods in order of severity. The classifications are mild, moderate severe.

Who Benefits the Most From Periodontal Therapy Treatments

Current patients, individuals who have never seen a dentist, and individuals who have not visited their dentist over an extended period, can benefit from periodontal therapy treatments. Prevention is the most cost effective way to treat periodontal disease. Brushing, and flossing daily are great oral hygiene techniques to use, however, it is not an effective treatment plan against fighting periodontal disease.

Visiting the dentist regularly, and following dental instructions can prevent periodontal gum disease, and possibly extend the life of both the gums and the natural teeth.
