Can Damage from Periodontitis Be Reversed?

Periodontitis is a serious, advanced form of gum disease that cause tooth loss. Although there is no cure for periodontitis, it can be controlled and some of the damage caused by the disease can be reversed. Regular dental cleanings are essential for reversing periodontitis and keeping it from progressing. Regenerative procedures may be necessary if you have lost bone and tissue to gum disease.

Regenerative treatment involves first removing all of the bacteria that is causing your periodontitis from the affected region. Next, bone grafts and tissue-stimulating proteins are introduced to support your body’s own efforts to regenerate lost tissue. In order for the regenerative procedures to work, it’s important to maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine at home and to have frequent dental cleanings.

Don’t let gum disease cause tooth loss and the need for dental implants for you. Make an appointment at Eagle Falls Dentistry for periodontics in Bloomingdale, IL. To schedule an appointment, call (630) 894-5992.
