Dentist in Cleveland area offers non-surgical gum treatment

Male patient getting his gums treated

When patients visit with the team of Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, they enjoy comprehensive dental care and solutions that may be used to improve the health and beauty of their smiles. Our team educates patients on the benefits of proper oral health habits and preventative care. However, there are times when patients may still end up dealing with conditions such as periodontal disease. This is why a dentist in the Cleveland area may suggest proper treatment.
Dr. Michael Stern of Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills encourages patients to take good care of their smile, brushing and flossing after every meal and maintaining their recall appointments twice a year at his state-of-the-art practice. This can also help him notice the early signs of periodontal disease. Treatment should start as soon as possible for the best results. The earlier stage of this disease, known as gingivitis, can be reversed with a thorough cleaning of the teeth and gum tissue. Unfortunately, if it is not caught and treated in time, the smile may be susceptible to the development of the later stages called periodontitis. This condition is not reversible but can only be controlled with regular treatments. Periodontitis is often treated with non-surgical periodontal treatment with a laser that kills the bacteria and helps the area heal. Perio Protect is the preferred non-invasive solution for periodontitis because it has the best chances of reducing the need for “deep cleaning” scaling and root planing and it can assist in controlling the disease on a long-term basis.
Patients in and around the area of Cleveland are encouraged to take the time to learn about the advantages of proactive dental care to protect their teeth and gums. Preventative care is so important to ensuring the smile will last a lifetime. Contact the team of Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills to book an appointment and find out how our practice can help you take a step in the right direction, caring for the smile and ensuring its health and beauty for many years to come!
