Periodontal Treatment in Roselle Park

Advanced gum disease sometimes calls for more than a routine cleaning that only gives the patient a thorough cleaning on the outer surfaces of teeth. At Garden State Dental, we believe that an effective periodontal treatment calls for a deeper clean, extending below the gum line to remove stubborn, crusty deposits called tartar or calculus. In some cases, removing damage and decay near the roots of the teeth becomes necessary to preserve the tooth and promote the patient’s dental health by preventing further damage, restoring, and stabilizing the tooth.

To facilitate the deeper clean that is required for periodontal treatment, some patients choose to use a local anesthetic, which can be administered directly onto the affected area, to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Once the area has been sufficiently numbed, the dentist uses a small scaling instrument, or an ultrasonic cleaning device that breaks up the tartar buildup and removes these deposits from the surfaces of the teeth as well as on or below the gum line. For buildup that has gone beyond the visible surfaces and into the gum tissues, dentists would need to create a flap on the affected area to give them access to the tartar that has accumulated below the gum tissue, and allow them to completely remove all traces of the buildup.

After cleaning, the root of the tooth will be inspected for signs of decay. When detected, the dentist will proceed to removing this as well to prevent further infection. Once completed, the root of the tooth may be smoothed or planed, restoring it as much as possible to its original shape. This process of planing will allow the gum tissues to re-attach onto the two to promote proper healing. The initial flap that was created at the beginning of the procedure will then be sutured close and allowed to heal for several weeks.
