PERIODONTAL DISEASES

Safe Periodontal Dental Restorations

Periodontal diseases affect the gums and the bone supporting the teeth. Due to food debris and bacteria, plaque gets accumulated around the tooth. Visit Fergus Spades Dental Care in Jonesboro, AR, for specialty periodontal dental restorations. Call 870-910-0000 today!

Types of Periodontal Diseases That Can Harm Your Teeth

  • Gingivitis
  • Chronic periodontal disease
  • Aggressive periodontal disease
  • Periodontal disease relating to systemic conditions
  • Necrotizing periodontal disease
Each periodontal disease has specific treatments. Contact our dentists today to learn more about the periodontal restoration procedures.

Periodontal Diseases Can Trigger Heart Diseases and Strokes

Researchers have found that a person having periodontal diseases is nearly twice as likely to suffer a coronary heart disease as a person without. An oral infection can even cause a stroke! Several theories explain the link between heart diseases, strokes, and periodontal diseases:
  • Oral bacteria affect the heart
  • Inflammation
  • Susceptibility to infections

Diagnosing Periodontal Diseases

Our experienced dentists will perform a periodontal examination before treating you for any periodontal diseases. A small dental instrument called periodontal probe is used to measure the sulcus (space) between a tooth and the gums. 

A healthy sulcus measures 2 millimeters or less and does not bleed. If our dentists find any other results, they will guide you through the next course of treatment.

Treating Periodontal Diseases

The treatment methods for periodontal diseases depend on the severity of the disease itself. All you have to do is schedule your appointment with our dentists, and they'll evaluate and recommend the suitable treatment.

For gingivitis, 1 or 2 sessions of cleaning with improved oral hygiene should be sufficient. If the disease is in an advanced stage, we perform a special cleaning called scaling and root planing or deep cleaning. Call us today at 870-910-0000.

Effective Treatment for Periodontal Diseases

If left untreated, it only takes a few hours for plaque to turn into calculus! It is advisable to visit your dentist at least 4 times a year for regular dental cleaning to maintain a good oral hygiene. Your appointment usually includes:

  • Examination of existing restorations
  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs)
  • Examination of tooth decay
  • Teeth polishing
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Oral hygiene recommendations
