Doylestown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2013 -- Many Americans face the challenge of being affected by periodontal disease. Commonly known as gum disease, periodontal disease affects the surrounding tissue of the tooth and even the jawbone if it has spread. If remained undetected or if not cared for properly by a professional, periodontal disease can be a serious illness, causing much more devastation to the entire body if left untreated. As a leading dental practice in Pennsylvania, American Dental Care in Doylestown uses the most up-to-date methods and treatments for periodontal disease.

Methods used to combat periodontal disease can vary depending on the severity of the disease each patient is experiencing. During the initial phase of the periodontal disease treatment, patients will be evaluated by the dental hygienist, who will recommend the proper treatment to combat the issue. Common types of periodontal disease include chronic, aggressive, necrotizing and periodontitis caused by systemic disease. Each stage requires a specific form of treatment which may include surgical and non-surgical options.
There are four main treatments for periodontal disease. Scaling and rooting requires the removal of the gum tissue that has been affected by the disease. Tissue regeneration requires grafting materials to be used to regrow the tissue that have been destroyed by the disease. Pocket elimination surgery requires surgery to be performed to reduce pocket size between gums and teeth that have been affected by the disease. Dental implants require prosthetic teeth to be restored into the jawbone. Patients who have questions about the causes or treatments of periodontal disease can speak with a dentist from American Dental Care in Doylestown for further information.
