Periodontal Therapy and Gum Treatment

Understanding the importance of gum health is crucial in maintaining not just a beautiful smile, but overall wellness. At Foxhall Dental Center, Dr. Charles White, together with our dedicated hygiene specialist, offers specialized periodontal therapy tailored to combat gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Our approach is centered around personalized care, ensuring each patient receives treatment that is specifically suited to their needs.

How Gum Health Impacts Overall Health

Periodontal therapy goes beyond treating gum disease; it's a vital step towards enhancing your overall health. By addressing and managing conditions like gingivitis and periodontitis, we not only work to prevent tooth loss and reduce gum inflammation but also contribute to mitigating risks associated with systemic health issues like heart disease and diabetes, which have been linked to gum disease.

Our Approach to Periodontal Care

In our Washington D.C. practice, we believe that effective periodontal care starts with a thorough understanding of each patient's unique oral health status. Here’s how we make a difference:

  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Dr. Charles White and our hygiene specialist closely evaluate your gum health to devise a targeted treatment plan. Whether you're showing early signs of gingivitis or facing the challenges of periodontitis, your care plan will be as unique as your smile.
  • Preventive Measures: We emphasize the importance of prevention through regular professional cleanings and patient education on proper home care techniques, aiming to halt the progression of gum disease before it starts.
  • Non-Surgical Treatments: For patients in the earlier stages of gum disease or those with specific treatment needs, we offer non-surgical options like scaling and root planing to thoroughly clean the pockets around teeth and prevent further damage.
  • Comprehensive Care: Recognizing that some cases may require advanced intervention, we are prepared to guide our patients through their treatment options, always focusing on the most effective and least invasive methods first.
