It is critical to take routine X-rays to keep track of jaw and teeth development in the mouth.

St. Johnsbury Dental Associates - Periodontal Gum Disease Therapy

Periodontal (Gum) Disease Therapy

If you have advanced periodontitis, you may require surgery such as pocket reduction surgery.

Additionally, we make a tiny incision in your gums so that a section of gum tissue can be lifted back, exposing the roots for more effective scaling and root planing.

Sealants protect vulnerable areas from tooth decay by “sealing out” food and plaque. Additionally, they create a barrier that helps prevent cavities.

Typically, children get them on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth are fully erupted. Moreover, adults without decay or fillings in their molars and premolars can also benefit from sealants.

A frenectomy is usually recommended if the frenum is causing pain or hindering proper function. Initially, treatment always begins by numbing the area.

Subsequently, the frenum is removed from either the floor of the mouth or the gum line. Often performed with a laser, no stitches will be required. Consequently, this will lead to an improved nursing relationship between the mother and the child.
