At Newtown Dentistry, we are dedicated to keeping your smile in the best of health. Our skilled dentists, Drs. Dudley, Condon, and Golisano, provide periodontal treatment in Newtown, Connecticut to ensure that your smile stays free from the effects of periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque. These bacteria can lead to infection of the gum tissue and may result in tooth loss, bone loss, and receding gums if the condition is not properly treated. In addition, untreated periodontal treatment may contribute to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, high blood pressure, and other serious medical conditions.
In order to prevent these dangerous consequences, we provide periodontal treatment, including scaling and root planing. Scaling and root planing are deep cleanings that remove bacteria and infected tissue, which helps to encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue and can halt the progress of the disease. Our dentists and dental team are gentle and experienced, and we will ensure that your periodontal treatment is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
