Understanding Periodontal Disease

Our job is to educate our patients on how periodontal disease develops and how it can escalate. At our dental practice, we are fast-moving when we detect the signs of periodontal disease. Our patients deserve top-notch care, and with gum disease’s links to stroke, heart disease, and diabetes, we know there’s no time to waste.

Causes of Periodontal Disease

We never want our patients to feel shame over the condition of their mouths. Our dentists understand that there are numerous reasons why someone might develop periodontal disease. When patients show signs of periodontal disease, our approach is simple: we’re here to help.

While there are many risk factors for periodontal diseases, these are the ones that come up the most:

  • Stress
  • Diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Crooked teeth
  • Certain medications
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Underlying immune-deficiencies

How to Treat Periodontal Disease

Scaling and Root Planing

As a dental practice, we never want to see our patients living with infections or pain. With our commitment to providing top-notch care, we recommend procedures to our patients that will improve their quality of life and alleviate conditions like gingivitis and periodontitis.

During scaling and root planing, we perform a deep cleaning of the mouth to remove the plaque and tartar formed above and below the gum line, ensuring we clean to the bottom of the gum pocket. Then, we move on to root planing, which involves smoothing out the roots of the teeth so the gums can reattach to them.


As specialists in combatting periodontitis, we use arestin to prevent further damage to the gums and promote healing. We provide our patients with long-term solutions, and using arestin as part of our personalized treatment plans helps us ensure optimal results.

People turn to Richboro Family Dentistry for relief when gum inflammation and infection make their daily lives miserable because we won’t stop until we fix the problem. Arestin targets the bacteria that cause gum inflammation to promote healing and prevent further damage to the gums. That way, we help our patients conquer periodontal disease and enjoy their daily activities without pain or discomfort in their gums.

Occlusal Adjustment

When patients come to us because they feel like their jaws are lopsided, we know it’s time to consider an occlusal adjustment. At Richboro Family Dentistry, we believe that the only way to give our patients the care they need is to stay up-to-date on all the latest technologies in our industry.

Using our cutting-edge technologies, we identify irregularities and pinpoint the areas of concern in a person’s bite. We scan the mouth on a computer to record hundreds of bite registrations per minute so we know exactly where to perform the adjustments. After the procedure, our patients leave with an aligned bite, which not only alleviates tension in the jaw but also protects the teeth for many years to come.


We go above and beyond when it comes to protecting gums, especially in cases of gum recession. As part of our commitment to put our patients’ well-being first, we don’t just treat symptoms; we look for the root cause of the issue.

After a thorough examination, if we conclude that the issue is the frenum, we perform a frenectomy. Our dentists are experts at this procedure, which involves removing or loosening the frenum (a small fold of tissue in the mouth). With our cutting-edge techniques, patients leave our dental practice with healthy gums.
