Periodontal Therapy Amesbury

Are you constantly feeling anxious about your trips to the dentist, despite the needs of your ailing oral health? Periodontitis can be a difficult oral disease to fight, and requires regular visits to your local Amesbury family dentist at least every six months in order to stop any further harm from coming to your smile. However, anxiety just over the sound of a drill can make it difficult to book an appointment. Fortunately, drill treatments are quickly becoming a thing of the past. For drill-free care that is truly safer and healthier for your smile, book your next appointment with Amesbury Family Dental and ask how laser-assisted periodontal therapy can work for you.

Gum Disease Treatments Amesbury

Gum Disease Treatments Amesbury

Drills are problematic in the land of dentistry for patients and doctors alike. For patients, they create pressure and vibration that can cause discomfort. For doctors, drills create greater loss of gum tissues, require anesthesia, and require additional care to insure infections do not occur after treatment. Fortunately, you can find the treatments you need to control gum disease without the drills you never want to hear the sound of with laser-assisted periodontal therapy at your professional Amesbury family dentist. Lasers increase patient comfort with friction-free care that also works to seal off the nerve endings as they work, allowing for anesthesia that never needs a needle. Lasers are not only more comfortable, but they are also more effective. Unlike a drill, a laser immediately kills bacteria on contact, making it the most effective way to treat gum disease and stop the spread of periodontitis. The guided technology of a laser insures that only problem areas are treated with no harm at all coming to the rest of your mouth. As a laser works to immediately seal off any openings in the tissues, they work to insure less trauma and a far short recovery time, making the ideal for pocket reduction surgery as they work to reattach gum lines and remove bacteria in one simple treatment with no need for scalpels or stitches at all. With the use of the Erbium lasers your gum lines are far less inflamed, allowing for many patients to immediately go back to enjoying their favorite foods and drinks as they like it without cringing from post-procedure pains.

For a dentist who is truly as dedicated to your comfort as they are your oral health, be sure to book your next appointment with your neighborhood Amesbury family dentist.

What good is dental prophylaxis, better known as a dental cleaning? Well, just think about all of the damage that plaque can do when it remains nestled between your teeth, in your gum pockets, and stuck between your teeth and gums. Of course, you brush and floss every day. Maybe you even use a good quality dental rinse. We at Amesbury Family Dental want you to know that all of those things are smart and they do help to prevent the majority of tooth decay and gum disease. But plaque is a sneaky thing. And when it sticks around, hardens, and turns into tartar, well then you really have a problem because no amount of brushing and flossing will remove it. Only our Amesbury dentist, Dr. Sanford Greenberg, and dental prophylaxis will take care of that.

Dental Exam Amesbury

Dental Exam Amesbury

A twice yearly dental exam involves a visual inspection of your teeth and gums and a set of x-rays to get a close-up view of any cavities that may have formed. But even filling a cavity won’t do a thing to prevent other cavities from forming. To do that, the plaque, tartar, food particles, and bacteria that have managed to stay hidden from your daily oral hygiene routine will keep eroding you tooth enamel and possibly causing gum irritation and eventually inflammation if they are not addressed by dental prophylaxis. Our Amesbury dentist will set you back on the road to optimal dental and periodontal health with a simple, safe, effective, and painless cleaning.

The benefits of dental prophylaxis are far reaching. If those enemies of your teeth and gums are not cleaned out, they will continue to wreak havoc. A small cavity can turn into a larger cavity; that can result in an infection deep in the pulp of your tooth that may require root canal therapy. In the worst case scenario, a tooth can become decayed beyond efficient repair, leading to an extraction. As for your gums, gingivitis- the first stage of gum disease- may only be bothersome and cause irritation. But periodontitis- the later stage of gum disease- can lead to loss of gum tissue and bone tissue, causing your teeth to become loose and possibly fall out. That’s the last thing our Amesbury dentist wants and the last thing you want too. Call us today and schedule an appointment for dental prophylaxis. There is no easier way to be good to your teeth and gums.
