The role of the treatment plan is to provide options to the patients on both short and long term solutions to alleviate discomfort, esthetically enhance the teeth, and establish and maintain a healthy mouth.
Treatment Plans – Periodontal Disease & Gingivitis
After thorough evaluation on a patient’s condition a treatment plan is determined. Due to the type and severity of the issue, the dentist will indicate the different procedural options available to the individual. The treatment may include multiple phases to address all aspects of therapy to solve the problem.
Treatment for periodontitis generally falls into two categories: procedures designed to halt the progression of disease, and procedures designed to regenerate structures destroyed by disease. Maintenance or supportive periodontal therapy following active treatment is essential to achieve a successful outcome.
