Periodontal Treatment in Fredericksburg, VA

If You Are Looking for Periodontal Treatment in Fredericksburg, VA, Call Heresi Dental Care.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an extremely common bacterial infection of the gums and bone that support the teeth, and it’s usually brought on by a lack of oral hygiene. Early symptoms of periodontal disease include red, swollen gums that tend to bleed easily, and if left untreated, it can ultimately lead to tooth loss! At Heresi Dental Care in Fredericksburg, VA our team will screen your gums whenever you come to see us, and should we spot the slightest sign of periodontal disease and any necessary periodontal treatment.

Common reasons for periodontal treatment:

  • Bleeding gums when brushing your teeth
  • Bright red or red-purple appearance to gums
  • Tender gums when touched
  • A shiny appearance to gums
  • Mouth sores
  • Loose teeth

At Heresi Dental Care in Fredericksburg, VA our dentists can perform various periodontal treatment procedures to get your gum back to a healthy status.

Scaling & Root Planing

A scaling and root planing treatment is sometimes called a “deep cleaning,” and this is because it targets the plaque and bacteria located below the gum line. With scaling, an ultrasonic cleaner will be used to break up and remove all the plaque and tartar deposits located around your gums, and then root planing will be used to gently smooth out the rough surfaces of your teeth’s roots.

Ridge Augmentation & Preservation

The procedure of ridge augmentation is done to add bone to the maxillary sinuses in order to support prosthetic teeth. Ridge preservation involves adding bone grafts at the site of an extracted tooth immediately after the removal procedure to prevent bone deterioration.

Crown Lengthening (Gingivectomy)

This is a surgical treatment used to treat gum disease where the bone, gum tissue, or both are removed to expose more of a tooth. A cut is made in the gum to let them pull away from the tooth and expose the roots and surrounding bone. The area is then flushed, and the gums are stitched back together.
