Periodontal Disease (Periodontitis)

Most people suffer from some form of gum disease with signs not showing until they are in their 30’s or 40’s. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in irreversible damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth; it is the major cause of tooth loss in adults.

The first line of defense against Periodontal disease is prevention. This necessitates a good daily oral hygiene routine at home. Brushing at least twice a day and cleaning between teeth once a day with floss helps prevent plaque and bacteria from accumulating.

The dentists at Dental center Dr. Batkoski also recommend the daily use of an anti-bacterial mouthwash.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is an infection of the tissue supporting the teeth. There are two main forms of gum disease; Gingivitis and Periodontal disease.

Symptoms of gum disease include:
• Constant bad breath
• Red or swollen gums
• Tender or bleeding gums
• Painful chewing
• Loose teeth
• Sensitive teeth
• Receding gums

Any of these symptoms may be a sign of a serious problem – see your dentist for a check-up.

Causes of Gum Disease

Our mouths are full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and food particles constantly form a sticky, colorless coating on teeth known as ‘plaque’. Brushing and flossing between teeth helps get rid of plaque however, plaque that is not removed hardens to form ‘tartar’ that ordinary brushing won’t remove.

The longer plaque and tartar are left on teeth the more harmful they become. Only professional cleaning by a dentist can remove tartar.

Dental center Dr. Batkoski advises patients to visit their dentist at least once a year for a check-up and dental hygienist treatment.


Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease usually noticeable when the gums around the teeth become red, swollen and bleed easily when brushed.

Gingivitus can usually be reversed with daily brushing and flossing as well as the use of an anti-bacterial mouthwash or, with a cleaning by a dentist.


In order to make an accurate assessment of your needs, an Initial Consultation is first necessary. Depending on how far the diseases have progressed, treatment can vary.

This Initial Consultation is very important so that the correct treatment can be prescribed for you and at Dental center Dr. Batkoski it is FREE OF CHARGE.

Following Consultation you would be given a detailed treatment plan outlining the options available to you, the exact cost, number of visits and the time scale which may depend upon any required healing time.

The number of appointments required depends on the area to be treated with generally one appointment a day, per quadrant.

Closed Curettage Periodontal Surgery

This treatment consists of eliminating the tartar and infection causing bacteria and irritants that have built up on and just below the gum line. There is no need to open the gum in this treatment.

Open Curettage Periodontal Surgery

This treatment also removes built up tartar and infectious bacteria but if they are found to be deeper, the gum needs to be opened or cut to allow us to remove the tartar and then arrange the gum tissue into a shape that will be easier to keep clean.

The many benefits of Periodontal treatment include fresh breath, the ability to chew your food more easily, healthy gums that are free from infection and most importantly help you retain your natural teeth.

Whatever the treatment may entail, at Dental center Dr. Batkoski our goal is to return you to good oral health and then help you to maintain it.

Depending on the severity of the disease, more in-depth oral hygiene instructions may be recommended.
