Our dentist's office provides soft tissue management services that are customized to your unique oral health needs.
A soft tissue management plan is a personalized plan designed by your dental team to help you maintain healthy gums for a lifetime.
During your regular checkup, our skilled dental team will examine your gums for areas that are infected or inflamed (or ‘periodontal pockets’). These periodontal pockets are a sign of gum disease. If you have periodontal pockets, we may recommend a soft tissue management plan in order to prevent progression of gum disease.
If you need a soft tissue management plan, our experienced dental team will develop an effective program that is personalized to your individual needs. Some of the effective treatments we often recommend include frequent hygiene appointments, root planning and scaling, specialized home care routines, antibiotics, and, in rare cases, surgical procedures.
The primary goal of a soft tissue management plan is to control periodontal disease (gum disease). The program aims to eliminate inflammation and infection in the gums and on root surfaces. The desired result is healthy gums that are not tender or inflamed and do not bleed, reduced pocket depths, and, ultimately, well-controlled periodontal disease.
