We know that particularly if you have never required any type of care specifically for your periodontal health before, finding out that we recommend periodontal treatment for your smile can feel somewhat startling. You may even begin to feel scared off by the notion of it, particularly if you read unreliable information online or talk with individuals who tell you stories about their experiences. Here’s what you should remember: The care that we provide to help you with all manner of gum health concerns is absolutely something that is approachable and that our Pella, IA team is sure you will be happy to have received. Now, let’s get down to the reasons we feel this way!
We Make It Completely Comfortable For You!
Your comfort is always on our minds and is always shuffled to the top of the priority list. If you’re uninformed at the moment about periodontal treatment, then allow us to better explain about how it will feel and what is required: We will perform something known as scaling. Similar to a traditional cleaning, during which we remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, we will be removing it from teeth and from well beneath the gumline, where it has accumulated and caused inflammation. We will then perform planing, which is the smoothing of that dental tissue, so bacteria cannot re-cling as easily to those areas. While it might not sound lovely, we assure you that we will numb your tissues, so you feel at ease.
We’re Mindful Of Your Schedule
We know that you are a busy individual and that the idea of sitting in our chair for hours on end isn’t exactly the most exciting idea! Here’s what you should know: Periodontal treatment is a thorough cleansing of plaque and tartar. Due to the nature of the treatment, it’s more time consuming than your traditional cleaning. To ensure your best experience, we will generally suggest completing this “deep cleaning” for one quadrant of your smile at a time. That translates into four convenient visits. Learn more by asking!
Choosing It Is So Much More Beneficial Than Avoiding It
Before you give into feeling at all skittish about periodontal treatment for your smile, we remind you to consider the fact that the only thing to feel nervous about would be not treating your periodontal problem. When you neglect gum disease, the problem can quickly spread and claim the life of much of your smile tissue. When you treat it, you can instead recover your gum health!
