Dr. Wagner Discusses What is gum disease?
Comprehensive Chambersburg, PA Gum Disease Treatment
Dr. Wagner will determine the type of gum disease treatment you need based on your current stage of the disease. Early-stage gum disease treatment typically requires scaling and root planing. With scaling, she thoroughly eliminates any infection beneath your gums. This is followed by root planing, which requires her to go beneath your gums to disinfect and smooth down the affected tooth roots. If the disease is at a more advanced stage, she performs osseous surgery.
For this she retracts the gums, removes untreatable tissue, rebuilds underlying bone, then sanitizes the entire area to eradicate infection.
After these treatments, Dr. Wagner will encourage you to adopt consistent dental hygiene habits and schedule you to return for ongoing treatment of your gum disease in Chambersburg, PA. These periodontal maintenance visits give her the opportunity to do additional deep cleaning to prevent the return and spread of the disease.
