Health Implications of Deep Dental Pockets

While tooth loss is typically the biggest concern associated with periodontal pockets, the infection poses a significant risk to your overall health. Active gum disease drastically increases the risk and severity of systemic health conditions like:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Infertility
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Preeclampsia
  • Pneumonia
  • Respiratory illness

…and possibly Alzheimer’s Disease.

Seeing a dentist for periodontal treatment isn’t just important for your smile, it’s vital to your health. 

Questions & Answers About Periodontal Treatment

What is Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy?

Non-surgical periodontal therapy is the removal of plaque and calculus from above and below the gum line. It may also include oral medications and rinses to kill bacteria and aid in gum and bone healing.

The following materials and techniques may be used in your nonsurgical periodontal therapy:

  • Hand held instruments known as scalers and ultrasonics to clean the teeth.
  • Local anesthetic (numbing) to control sensitivity.
  • Antibacterial rinses to help decrease plaque and calculus.
  • Antibiotics to help kill bacteria and viruses and reduce the destructive response some people have to periodontal infections.
  • Laser treatment to control bacterial levels around affected areas.
What are the benefits of Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy?

Some potential benefits of non-surgical periodontal therapy include:

  • Eliminating the infection present
