There have been major advances in non-surgical periodontal treatment for chronic periodontal disease that help us improve, treat and maintain your overall oral health. Our dentist, Dr. Brian M. Lane, and our team use state-of-the-art ultrasonic scalers which have been specially designed by a periodontist for maximum effectiveness on root surfaces. Antibiotic gels, which are placed below the gum line, reduce the need for periodontal surgery. The latest innovation, a dental endoscope (camera) which can be placed below the gum line to inspect and diagnose pockets and other conditions, further reduces the need for surgical treatment of periodontal disease.
We take every opportunity to help you take control of your periodontal disease without the need for surgical methods and then reevaluate to determine the effectiveness of the treatment. If surgical treatment is required, the treatments maximize your comfort and your body’s ability to regrow lost periodontal tissues, allowing you more support.
