Diagnosed with Periodontal Disease?

High-Quality Dentistry Services in Ventura

Periodontal disease refers to diseases of the gums. The first sign of periodontal disease may be red, swollen, and inflamed gums, which is also known as gingivitis. Someone who has gingivitis may notice light bleeding from the gums when brushing or flossing their teeth.

Gums become inflamed is because of plaque buildup that occurs well below the gum line. If left untreated, gingivitis can evolve into the more serious, periodontitis. When pockets of plaque buildup have separated the tooth from the gum line, they can hardened and calcify to form tartar. These pockets are full of bacteria, making the area susceptible to infection. It can eventually lead to tooth loss should the pockets continue growing and the surrounding tissues become damaged.

If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease and want to learn about your treatment options, call on our Ventura dentist, Mark Weitzman, D.D.S. today!

Treatment Options for Gum Disease

The biggest concern when it comes to periodontal disease is when the pockets of tartar buildup detach the tooth from the gum line. The procedures that Dr. Weitzman uses can help not only better the health of your gums, but also reduce swelling and possible infection, prevent the disease from getting worse, and most importantly, allow the tooth and gum to reattach.

Here are some forms of treatment that we offer:

  • Dental deep cleaning
  • Scaling and root planning
  • Antibiotic drugs
  • Pocket reduction surgery
  • Bone or soft tissue grafts
  • Guided tissue regeneration
  • Bone surgery

While the deep cleaning and scaling and root planning procedures can be done in-office, many of the other procedures involve surgery. These are for the most extreme cases when the tissue is damaged beyond repair and surgery becomes the best solution.

When you come to our office, Dr. Weitzman can give you an overall assessment of the extent of your disease and what the most practical and effective treatment is for your situation. With over 15 years of experience improving people's smiles and, he offers the dedicated, personalized care you need to help ease your worries and give you the most efficient treatment possible.

  • “Best Hygienist”
    Hi Mark, your hygienist is great. VERY good bedside manner; was sensitive to my sensitivities with regard to those hook things" she uses to scrape plaque. Let's get together over this implant issue. No hurry, and sooner the better, huh? Would you ask someone there to email me an estimate for the work still to be done, please. We're in our "slow" time, and Vic is asking that we pay some meager attention to budgeting, so...Thanks, and have a great vacation.
