At Siri Dental Hospitals, with branches located conveniently across Hyderabad including Dilsukhnagar, Nallagandla, Kharmanghat, Tarnaka, Kokapet, and Kondapur, we understand the importance of addressing periodontal disease promptly and effectively. In this blog post, we’ll explore what periodontal disease is and how our expert team of dentists can provide comprehensive treatment options to restore your oral health.


What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It typically starts with the accumulation of plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, on the teeth and gums. If left untreated, plaque can harden into tartar, leading to gum inflammation (gingivitis) and, eventually, more severe forms of periodontal disease such as periodontitis.


Symptoms of periodontal disease may include:

  1. Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  2. Gum recession
  3. Persistent bad breath
  4. Loose or shifting teeth
  5. Pus between the teeth and gums
  6. Changes in the way your teeth fit together when you bite

Treatment Options at Siri Dental Hospitals:

At Siri Dental Hospitals, our experienced team of dentists specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. We offer a range of advanced treatment options tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

  1. Professional Dental Cleaning:

Regular professional dental cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral hygiene and preventing periodontal disease. During a cleaning appointment, our dental doctors will carefully remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums, reducing the risk of gum inflammation and infection.


  1. Scaling and Root Planing:

For patients with early-stage periodontal disease, scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) may be recommended. This non-surgical procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth and roots, smoothing rough areas to prevent bacteria from re-accumulating.


  1. Periodontal Maintenance:

After undergoing treatment for periodontal disease, it’s important to maintain regular follow-up appointments for periodontal maintenance. These appointments typically involve thorough cleanings and evaluations to monitor the health of your gums and prevent recurrence of the disease.


  1. Surgical Treatments:

In more advanced cases of periodontal disease, surgical intervention may be necessary to restore gum health and prevent further damage to the teeth and supporting structures. Our skilled periodontal specialists are trained in various surgical techniques, including periodontist, gum grafting, pocket reduction surgery, and bone grafting.


  1. Patient Education and Home Care:
