Periodontal disease is when the patient has plaque accumulation or tartar accumulation beneath the gum line and starts to lose bone. And what we do is we, of course, take x-rays. We do close flap procedure, or deep cleaning, or debridement of the roots, as well as some require bone grafting to help minimize the bone defects. Home treatments for prevention of periodontal disease, just flossing and brushing three times a day, and regular check-ups and x-rays. This is the best way to prevent periodontal disease.
