At The Center For Progressive Dentistry, our emphasis on preventive care includes maintaining both healthy teeth and healthy gums. Our dentists identify and prevent periodontal issues with advanced solutions and top technologies. We proudly provide leading gum disease and periodontal treatments near Cortland, OH, emphasizing timely intervention and long-term solutions.

Understanding Gum Disease

Gum disease, a condition marked by bacterial buildup and inflammation of the gum line, is often triggered by inadequate oral care, missed dental appointments, genetics, age, or chronic illnesses. Gum disease poses risks such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and complications during pregnancy.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Early stages of gum disease may not be immediately apparent, underscoring the importance of regular dental checkups at The Center For Progressive Dentistry. Recognizing symptoms like loose teeth, tooth or mouth pain, receding and swollen gums, bleeding during brushing, mouth sores, bad breath, pus between teeth, ill-fitting dentures, or changes in bite signals the need for prompt attention.

Treatment for Gum Disease

At the Center for Progressive Dentistry, our team is equipped with tools, technologies, and expertise to address gum disease and restore optimal gum health effectively. We offer the following periodontal treatments at our Cortland, OH dental office:

Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST)

Dr. Bedich, a certified Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) dentist, recommends this minimally invasive procedure to address significant gum recession caused by gum disease. PST restores gum health without grafting or stitches, enhancing the mouth's aesthetics and functionality.

Benefits of the Pinhole Surgical Technique include:

  • Minimal patient discomfort
  • Faster recovery compared to traditional grafting
  • No need for uncomfortable sutures
  • Avoidance of scalpels or invasive surgical tools
  • Exceptional, natural-looking, and long-lasting results

Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)

An effective treatment for gingivitis, scaling, and root planing involves a deep cleaning below the gum line, smoothing the tooth's surface. This procedure removes plaque, bacteria, and acid buildup, promoting healthier teeth, gums, and oral health while preventing the progression of gum disease.

Laser Gum Treatments

Dr. Bedich and Dr. Fromel utilize state-of-the-art soft tissue lasers for gum disease treatment, providing enhanced precision and control. Many patients prefer laser treatments for their speed and reduced discomfort compared to traditional and surgical gum treatments.
