Periodontal Care

Maintaining healthy gums is essential for overall oral health and wellbeing. At Port Credit Dental, serving patients in Port Credit and Mississauga, we specialize in periodontal care to help you achieve and maintain healthy gums for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common condition that affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and other serious oral health problems. Fortunately, with proper periodontal care and treatment, gum disease can be effectively managed and controlled.

Our comprehensive periodontal care services include:

Periodontal Evaluation:

Our skilled dentists will perform a thorough evaluation of your gums to assess their health and identify any signs of periodontal disease, such as redness, swelling, bleeding, or recession.

Scaling and Root Planing:

Also known as a deep cleaning, scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment that removes plaque and tartar buildup from below the gumline and smooths the tooth roots to promote healing and prevent further infection.

Periodontal Maintenance:

Following treatment for gum disease, we recommend regular periodontal maintenance visits to monitor your gum health, remove any remaining plaque and tartar, and prevent the recurrence of periodontal disease.

Gum Grafting:

In cases of severe gum recession, we may recommend gum grafting surgery to restore lost gum tissue and improve the appearance and health of your smile.

Pocket Reduction Surgery:

For advanced cases of periodontal disease, pocket reduction surgery may be necessary to remove bacteria and reduce pocket depths around the teeth, allowing for better cleaning and improved gum health.

At Port Credit Dental, we take a proactive approach to periodontal care, focusing on prevention, early intervention, and patient education to help you achieve and maintain optimal gum health. Our experienced team is here to guide you every step of the way and provide personalized care tailored to your unique needs and goals.
