Greenwood area dentist provides advanced and effective periodontal treatments
Periodontal disease is a serious condition that affects many Americans. Patients in and around the Greenwood area may find that they are suffering from conditions such as periodontitis or the earliest stage, gingivitis. Patients who are dealing with these problems may need advanced and effective periodontal treatments to reverse as much of the condition as possible. While periodontal disease cannot be cured, it can be controlled and patients should work with their dentist to monitor the condition.
Dr. Christopher T. Griffin of Greenwood provides a variety of periodontal services in his practice. For patients who are struggling with periodontitis or gingivitis, he offers scaling and root planing. This removes plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the surfaces of the teeth and gums. Patients who undergo this procedure will have to visit their dentist frequently to ensure the condition continues to improve and does not become worse.
The doctor also provides several other periodontal treatments including the placement of dental implants and contouring the gum line. He works with patients to help them achieve great oral health while maintaining it over the years. We recommend appropriate home health care, special mouthwashes and toothpastes, and regular visits to his practice to monitor the condition.
Patients who take good care of their smile can reduce the risk of the development of periodontal disease and maintain better oral health. This includes brushing and flossing after every meal and regular visits to Dr. Christopher T. Griffin for examinations, cleanings, and any other necessary screenings. Preventative care can greatly assist in reducing the risk of gum disease.
Patients who are interested in advanced periodontal treatments through our practice are encouraged to contact us and schedule an initial consultation appointment along with a thorough examination.
