Brookfield, WI Periodontists | (855) 263-4605

You can have a beautiful smile but beneath it, you could be losing periodontal attachment, i.e. bone that supports the teeth. Gum disease is generally asymptomatic – silent. Early warning signs may be slight bleeding when you brush or floss, slight redness and inflammation of the gum margins, bad taste or breath – or you may not notice anything. Later symptoms and consequences that you will recognize include abscesses, loose or moving teeth, and ultimately tooth loss. Contact us today to schedule an appointment in the Brookfield, WI area.

The treatment of periodontal diseases depends upon their cause so accurate diagnosis beginning with a comprehensive periodontal evaluation is crucial. Most early to moderate periodontal diseases have some common treatment objectives: Instructing you in achieving optimum daily biofilm (plaque) control at home with brushing and flossing, and making sure you receive a thorough professional teeth cleaning – known as scaling and root planing, or root debridement – at the dental office. More significant moderate to advanced disease may also include occlusal (bite) treatment and/or surgical treatment.

53005 Periodontal Treatment | (855) 263-4605

Our periodontists in 53005 examines the gums, checks to see if there is any gum line recession, assesses how the teeth fit together when biting, and checks the teeth to see if any are loose. The periodontist will also take a small measuring instrument called a probe and place it between the teeth and gums to determine the depth of those spaces, known as periodontal pockets; this helps the periodontist assess the health of the gums. X-rays may also be taken to observe the health of the bone below the gum line.

If you have a periodontal concern, a good place to start is your general or family dentist, who will refer you to a periodontal specialist if he or she feels that your condition warrants it, or if your treatment needs are beyond the scope of that particular general dental practice. Any general dentist who treats periodontal gum disease must treat to the same standards as a periodontist, so if you are accepted for treatment, you should be in good hands.
