West Palm Beach area patients ask about the cost of periodontal treatment
Periodontal disease is a serious condition that should never be taken lightly. Pure Dental Care in the West Palm Beach area dentists believe in preventative care for patients in their practice—but good oral health care can still fall by the wayside and patients may be dealing with conditions such as gum disease as a result.
Poor oral health care is the primary reason for the development of periodontal disease. However, there are several different levels of the disease which need to be taken into consideration when patients are seeking periodontal treatment. The primary stage is known as gingivitis. Patients with gingivitis may notice they have red, inflamed gum tissue. They may deal with bleeding when brushing and/or flossing their teeth. They may also be struggling with persistent bad breath that doesn’t seem to get controlled no matter what they do. When individuals notice these symptoms, they need to connect with their dentist for an evaluation and proper diagnosis before periodontal treatment can start.
Without treatment, the condition gets progressively worse. Periodontal disease can be a devastating disease. It can result in the permanent loss of bone, gum tissue, and natural teeth. It can cause patients to be at a greater risk for many serious medical conditions due to the oral systemic connection which carries the bacteria in the mouth to organs throughout the body. Pure Dental Care believe that with proper care and attention, patients can restore their smile back to health after periodontal disease has been present.
Patients are often concerned about the cost of periodontal treatment. When patients are worried that they won’t be able to afford it, they are often presented with the alternative: how will you be able to afford the restorations necessary to get the smile back to a functional state? Many patients who have dental insurance plans may also be able to enjoy coverage, while those who need to pay out-of-pocket have several payment and financing options available through our practice. When it comes down to it, many patients cannot afford to let the condition affect their smile to the point where they can no longer eat, smile, or feel confident about the way they look.Back to Periodontal Therapy Page
