Periodontal Disease Therapy & Maintenance

Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that attacks the bone that supports our teeth. There are many stages of periodontal disease. Left untreated, advanced stages of periodontal disease may lead to tooth loss.
 
Dentistry for the Entire Family’s dental hygienists are expertly trained to treat and maintain gingivitis, early, and chronic stages of adult periodontitis. For patients with advanced stages of periodontal disease, we’ll collaborate with a periodontist (a dentist who specializes in the treatment of periodontal disease) for your care.
 
Gingivitis
Gingivitis is reversible with improved oral hygiene care practices and a through professional dental cleaning. Gingivitis symptoms may include: red, swollen, gums that bleed easily while brushing and flossing.
 
Periodontitis
It is at this stage that a bacterial infection is present and requires periodontal therapy treatment. Periodontitis symptoms include gingivitis symptoms and the presence of periodontal pocket measuring 5mm* and above.
 
*A periodontal probe instrument is used to measure the bone support in millimeters around each tooth. A healthy measurement is 3mm or below. Our dental hygienists record these measurements yearly and check areas of concern at every periodontal maintenance visit.

Root Canal Therapy

During root canal therapy, the infected tooth nerve (blood supply to tooth) is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected before being filled with an inert filling material called gutta-percha.
 
Because the tooth no longer has a blood supply, the tooth will become very brittle and prone to fracture. For this reason, the dentist will likely recommend to fabricate a dental crown to permanently restore the tooth and prevent the tooth from fracture following root canal therapy treatment.

Tooth Extraction

Although permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are circumstances where a tooth may need to be extracted.
Periodontal (gum) disease is the number one reason for tooth extraction. If the tooth loss results in unsightly space, one of our dentists will discuss tooth replacement options that may include a dental bridge, implant, or partial denture.

TMJ Therapy & Management

TMJ stands for Temporomandibular joint. Dysfunction of this joint that we use to chew, talk, breath, swallow, yawn, and snore can lead to symptoms such as: headaches, neck, shoulder, or back pain, clicking, popping, or problem opening and closing your mouth.
 
Many TMJ symptoms can be self managed and stem from daily stress and habits such as grinding and or clenching of our teeth. If further evaluation is necessary, we’ll collaborate and arrange for you to see a specialist.

Orthodontic Therapy

Dental braces are placed to improve how your teeth occlude or come together. Teeth that are crowded or misaligned are difficult to keep clean, are at greater risk for dental caries and periodontal disease. Some of the most common reasons people elect dental braces:
 

  • Eliminate teeth crowding
  • Close unsightly spaces between teeth
  • Correct the way their teeth occlude (come together). This includes correction of overbite, underbite, or a crossbite

 
Dr. Jagger is a certified Invisalign dentist and offers complimentary Invisalign consultation appointments. Call (763) 586-9988 to schedule today or request a consultation appointment online. Invisalign braces are one of several available orthodontic options.

Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)

Bruxism is the involuntary or habitual grinding and/or clenching of the teeth, typically during sleep. Unmanaged bruxism can lead to excessive wear, cracks, sensitivity, and painful chewing.
 
If the dentist suspects or sees visual evidence of Bruxism (teeth grinding), a soft, inexpensive, flexible mouthguard can be custom fabricated for you wear while you sleep. This will prevent further wear of your teeth.

  • Side effect of medications
