What is Periodontic Therapy?

Periodontal (gum) disease is present in almost half of American dental patients. This disease occurs when bacteria grows below the gumline, causing the tooth the gums to pull away from the tooth and will eventually lead to the loss of the bone that holds the teeth in place. proper brushing and flossing is the first and most important step to preventing this disease. Our office will often recommend a deep cleaning that will allow us to clean away the bacteria under the gumline and promote healthy gum tissue to attach to the tooth again to prevent the worsening of this condition.

What is Endodontic Therapy?

Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth. Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, trauma to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

During root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
