Poor oral health and gum disease are a big issue that needs professional treatment. It’s not just that having a bad set of teeth affects your confidence, but it can also lead to gum disease.

So getting your oral health back on track should be a top priority – and Southridge Dental is here to help you do just that.


What Is A Periodontal Service?

Periodontics is the treatment, prevention and diagnosis of periodontal disease and the application of dental implants, as well as expertise in the treatment of gum disease and oral inflammation. A periodontist is a highly trained and skilled professional with an advanced education in dentistry. You will receive expert care and all the very latest techniques when it comes to the care and treatment of disease and the application of procedures for health and for cosmetic reasons.

Your periodontal service can treat more complex and problematic cases where disease is present or damage to the teeth is quite advanced, or where a complicated medical history is present. This can even include the removal of diseased tissue or other treatments which require a surgical approach. Periodontists are also specially trained in the repair, maintenance and placement of dental implants.

What Happens In A Periodontal Appointment?

If you require the services of a periodontist in Nampa, Southridge Dental can help. On your first visit, we will review your complete medical and dental history. It’s very important to communicate any medication that you are taking or if you’re receiving treatment for any condition, such as diabetes or pregnancy. There will then be a full and thorough examination of your teeth and gums. During this process we will be looking at signs of receding or infected gums, checking how the teeth fit together in the jaw and when biting and if any are currently loose. Your gum health will be assessed using a small probe and x-rays may also be taken to help the periodontist to assess the health of the bone below the gum line. In this way, we can devise a treatment plan that will restore your oral health.
