Treatment of periodontal
Periodontal disease not only destroys gums, alveolar bone and other periodontal tissues, but also causes tooth loss. According to the results of the National Tooth Extraction Survey in 2018, 37.1% of tooth extractions were caused by periodontal disease, surpassing 29.2% of tooth decay and making it the leading cause of tooth loss.1)
That’s why it’s advisable to avoid serious gum disease and start treatment as early as possible.

How to treat periodontal disease
Treatment options for periodontal disease depends on the degree of progress. However, basic periodontal treatment is indicated for all patients.
Basic Periodontal Treatment
Basic periodontal treatment is a first procedure to improve your inflammation state of periodontal tissue plaque and tartar, etc., which are house for periodontal disease bacteria.
PMTC（Professional Mechanical Tooth Cleaning）
PMTC means “mechanical cleaning by a specialist” and refers to so-called “dental cleanings done at the dental clinic” to remove biofilm coating your tooth and stains that cannot be removed by your regular brushing.
SRP (Scaling and Root Planing)
SSRP is a procedure that removes tartar from the tooth surface. A special instrument called a scaler is used to carefully remove tartar from each tooth. SRP makes your tooth and root surface heather to remove tartar.
We provide brushing guidance to help you practice proper oral care. Creating a plaque-free state every day is more important than anything else in the treatment of periodontal disease.
Periodontal surgery is a procedure performed for severe periodontal disease. It is performed when deep periodontal pockets remain after basic periodontal treatment, or when the periodontal disease does not stop progressing.
Periodontal tissue regeneration therapy
Periodontal tissue regeneration therapy is designed to regenerate tissue destroyed by periodontal disease. We try to regenerate the tissue by implanting grafted bone or special medication into the alveolar bone that has been absorbed.
