Wayne Area Patients Ask What To Expect Before, During, And After Periodontal Treatment

Patients in the Wayne, New Jersey area who are interested in learning about periodontal treatment for gum disease are welcome to visit Aesthetic Smile Design. Dr. Gary Edeer can explain what patients can expect before, during, and after treatment so there are no surprises!


The first step in periodontal treatment is a proper diagnosis. Patients are encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Gary Edeer for an evaluation to determine if gum disease is present. Gum disease can occur in several different stages, so a diagnosis of the stage is necessary to better determine the most effective treatment.


The treatment depends on the stage of the disease. The early stage, known as gingivitis, can be treated with a thorough cleaning. However, the later stage, periodontitis, requires more thorough treatment using laser therapy. A special laser device is used to target bacteria on the soft tissues and to remove them from all surfaces of the teeth.


After periodontal treatment, patients are urged to follow a specific regimen to care for their smile and keep the condition from becoming worse. At this time, there is no cure for periodontal disease. However, it can be treated and controlled with the help of a dental professional. At Aesthetic Smile Design, Wayne area patients can visit regularly for check-ups and evaluations while maintaining proper home care. Patients may also need to see the dentist every three moths instead of every six.
