Here at Taylor Brook Dental Associates, we are proud to treat periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease is quite common in adults and it needs to be treated as soon as it is found. Treatment depends on how far along the disease is.

A good professional cleaning is necessary to remove the tartar from your mouth and underneath your gums. If your periodontal disease is bad, you may need to follow up your brushing and flossing with antibacterial mouthrinse. You may even need to use an antibacterial gel or start on oral antibiotics to help to get rid of the disease. Sometimes surgery is necessary to help with the deep pockets of infection.

Once your periodontal disease is under control, good home care with brushing and flossing should help to keep it from coming back.

If you think that you have periodontal disease, don’t hesitate to contact us at 207-784-1577.
