Worcester, MA area dentist discusses periodontal treatment options for gum disease

Posted By

Dr. Stanley M. Levenson of Levenson Smile in Worcester, MA is a professional who is here to help patients with their oral health needs. In addition to providing preventative care, he also offers periodontal therapy for patients who have developed gum disease. There are a variety of treatment options available for patients to consider when they want to improve the health and appearance of their smiles, and our team is here to assist.

Understanding gum disease

To learn more about the treatment options available, patients first need to get a diagnosis of gum disease from a dentist. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a condition that can generally be avoided with proper oral hygiene habits. However, if it does develop, early diagnosis and immediate treatment are needed. Gum disease is a bacterial condition that causes inflammation and swelling of the gum tissues. It can result in deep pockets between the gum tissues and the teeth. The pockets can harbor bacteria and cause further infection. It can result in the loss of bone, gum tissue, and natural teeth. If patients take good care of their teeth and maintain routine visits with their dentist, they have a much higher chance at avoiding the development of the condition in the first place.

Periodontal treatment options for gum disease in Worcester, MA

Treatment for gum disease is often referred to as periodontal therapy. Periodontal therapy is a type of treatment that is used to combat the bacteria in the mouth and to bring the teeth and gums back to health. Dr. Stanley M. Levenson and the staff at Levenson Smile are here to help patients address problems as soon as they are diagnosed. This ensures successful treatment and reduced risk to the soft tissues, bone, or natural teeth. There are several treatment options that may be used when it comes to treating gum disease in patients in the Worcester, MA area:
  • Deep cleaning – in the earlier stages of gum disease, referred to as gingivitis, patients may experience red and swollen gums that bleed during brushing and flossing. This is often the first sign that periodontal disease is developing. If caught early enough and properly diagnosed, many patients can reverse the damage with a deep cleaning of the teeth and gums by our dedicated dental staff.
  • Scaling and root planing – the later stages of periodontal disease may require more invasive treatment to address the infection. This treatment, known as scaling and root planing, is a deeper clean and can address surfaces including the roots of the natural teeth.
  • Antibiotics – in many situations, patients may also have antibiotics that are either prescribed to them as an oral medication or as an application onto the teeth and gums. This is done to address the infection immediately, while also keeping the rest of the smile clean with deep cleaning or scaling and root planing.

What treatment is right for me?

During an evaluation, which may include x-rays to check the health of the teeth, patients can speak to their dentist about what they are experiencing. Then, the patient is examined to determine if bacteria is present and putting their smile at risk. At this time, the dentist will then offer the treatment options available to help patients bring their smile back to health. The method of treatment is matched to the stage the condition has reached, with the later stages being treated with scaling and root planing.

Well, I've got to tell you. I can't recommend highly enough Dr. Stanley Levenson. There's this mouth piece... it's great! I snore. . I used to snore, like a bear! It would leave me on the couch many, many nights. If I wasn't on the couch, I was getting an elbow in the ribs. I have sleep apnea and, using this device, I am well rested now!

Stanley is no doubt the best dentist I have ever had, He and his staff have been wonderful to me since the day we met, when I came in for an emergency with my wisdom teeth. He came in on a Sunday to look at my teeth and helped me find help when I needed it most. I have been coming here ever since! I love having my teeth cleaned, the girls are so gentle and caring and I even got my Invisalign through Stan. I always have a great experience and would never go anywhere else! Thanks to everyone at Levensonsmile for treating me like family. Your all wonderful!!

After years of severe bruxism I took the plunge and had no prep veneers done! I can't say enough about the quality of his work! I did my homework and some other consults and am so happy with my choice in Dr Levenson and his team! Friends and family are amazed at how natural they look which was my #1 request....no Chiclet gum smile for me thank you. He listened to my desires for my smile (while correcting some alignment and grinding issues) and was never pressured into doing more than I wanted. It was pain free, fast (a few couple hour appts) and done! They haven't hesitated to get me back in as I panicked over the new feeling and adjustment to the new teeth....that speaks volumes! Thanks Dr. Levenson See you in Chicago!

I just started going to Dr Levenson, and it has been many many years since I was at the dentist. Well, let me tell you, it has been nothing but a pleasant experience all the way around. Right from the moment you walk into the reception area, you are greeted by professional and friendly staff they genuinely care that you are seen quickly and are comfortable and don't need anything. Throughout any procedure I was constantly asked if I was comfortable or in any pain (I wasn't). And, Dr Levenson had to refer me out at first for a root canal, and he went out of his way to make sure I was matched up with a dentist that would suit me! The best!

Dr. Levenson and his staff are great and very friendly - I went in for a consultation for 6-month smiles because I was getting married and wanted to straighten my front teeth due to the crowding. I went for my first appointment in December, he explained everything to me and gave me my options. I decided to go with the 6-month smiles and got the braces put on before Christmas. They came off in June and I got married 4th of July weekend. Dr. Levenson did an amazing job. The results were incredible, especially since I was afraid the bottom teeth weren't going to be done in time. The crowding was pretty bad - definitely gave him a challenge but he worked his magic and made it happen. Kara was one of the assistants who worked with me and she was truly wonderful, an absolute sweetheart. Love her! Most recently, my husband did a pretty good job chipping one of his front teeth and Dr. Levenson was able to get him in and fix it quickly. Highly recommended dentist!

For me, Dr. Levenson is my rock star dentist. and I love him and the staff for all that you have done for me. You gave me some life back, and I cannot thank you all enough.
