Peridontal Treatment from Boston Dental - Dr. Dan Boston General Dentistry

When a patient is diagnosed with periodontal disease, non-surgical periodontal treatment (NSPT) is the first step in restoring the healthy gum tissue. NSPT may sound frightening, but it is actually a relatively painless process. We start with a thorough cleaning of your teeth in our office to help heal inflamed or infected gum tissue. We then remove the plaque and harder mineral deposits called calculus (or tartar) from tooth surfaces above and below the gum line. This process, called scaling, may also involve smoothing the roots of your teeth (called root planing). Dental x-rays will be taken to check the condition of the roots of your teeth and the bone that supports your teeth. You may also receive medications or a special mouth rinse to help control the growth of bacteria that accumulate around your teeth and often cause inflammation and infection of gum tissues.
