Ahh Smile Periodontal Treatment serves all patients with periodontitis, including those with minor, major, and severe issues. Through a combination of periodontal treatments, applications, and other specialized techniques, Ahh Smile gives patients many options to recover from gum disease and battle their way back to oral health. Contact us today for more information about Ahh Smile periodontal treatments in both of our locations in Laredo, Texas and Zapata, Texas.

What is Periodontal Treatment?

Ahh Smile periodontal treatment focuses on fighting periodontal disease/periodontitis, commonly referred to as gum disease. Periodontitis ranges from mild issues such as gum inflammation to critical health problems that can have serious effects in not your mouth and teeth, but your body as well if you neglect periodontal treatment.

Periodontitis is typically caused from built-up plaque that hardens over time, creating tartar that brushing and flossing cannot eliminate. Neglecting to remove tartar through dental cleanings leads to an inflammation of the gum, known as gingivitis. While gingivitis is a mild form of periodontitis and can be reversed with Ahh Smile periodontal treatment, neglecting to do so can quickly lead to further, more serious issues such as tooth loss and serious gum disease that can cause heart attacks, respiratory disease, and many more delicate illnesses. Periodontitis causes the gums to pull away from the teeth and form spaces that are easily infected. If not treated, the bones, gums, and tissue that supports your teeth can be destroyed and pass the point of periodontal treatment, instead forcing the need of a tooth extraction.

Ahh Smile Periodontal Treatment Options

Ahh Smile periodontal treatments include the removal of dead, damaged, or infected tissue from gum wounds. Additional periodontal treatments include scaling and root planing intended to remove plaque and tartar from periodontal pockets, smoothing the tooth root to remove the toxins. Though many patients experiencing periodontitis can solve their issues with periodontal treatments such as scaling and root planing, advanced periodontitis might require further periodontal treatments and procedures to cure the disease, including gum graft surgery, laser treatment, regenerative procedures, and other types of surgery including gingivectomy – surgical removal of diseased gum tissue – or gingivoplasty – surgery to reshape healthy gum tissue.

Here is a list of Ahh Smile periodontal treatment options:

Thorough removal of unhealthy tissue
Pocket reduction procedures
Gum grafts
