Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal Therapy Buford, GA

Periodontal Therapy

Gum or periodontal disease is a common problem among adults. It is estimated that over half of adults over thirty experience some level of periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease can also increase your risk for serious health issues, including pregnancy complications, type 2 diabetes and stroke. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Buford Family Dental, we care about your health and we can help you fight gum disease with our effective periodontal therapies.

Gum Infection Treatment

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums. When the bacteria that cause gum disease are allowed to flourish, they can cause an infection in the gum tissue. This infection deteriorates the health of the gums, causing them to recede, bleed and begin to shrink. Stopping the infection is the first step to restoring gum and oral health. Removing the bacteria, plaque and tartar from the teeth through deep cleanings is necessary, along with treatments to fight the existing infection.

Scaling and Root Planing

One of the most effective treatments for periodontal disease is deep cleanings of the roots of the teeth. When the gums recede, it allows bacteria to hide deeper on the tooth root, creating plaque and tartar below the gum line. The hard tartar irritates the gums, causing them to recede even further. Scaling and root planing remove (scales) the tartar from the roots and smoothes (planing) the root surface. This removes the bacteria and allows the gum tissue to heal and reattach to the roots for restored gum health.

If you have been diagnosed with gum disease or are experiencing symptoms of gum disease, contact Buford Family Dental for a checkup. We can begin periodontal therapy to restore your oral health and protect your smile. Our office accepts many types of dental insurance plans to help mitigate the cost of your treatment.

I chipped my tooth at 1:30pm. I called them at 2:20, and they had me in at 3:30pm. They close at 4:30. I was given the option to place a crown on my tooth that day, or make an appointment for another day. I chose to do it that day, and it was done with a smile! It was Dr. Patel’s birthday, AND he stayed past closing to assist me. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable about solutions to the problem. I highly recommend this office!

I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone that I know. Dr. Patel took lots of time on my initial visit to answer all of the questions that I had and was very gentle and precise during my procedure. I also had a root canal done by Dr. Finot and it could not have gone any better as far as root canals go. You can tell that he has done countless root canals and the procedure is being conducted flawlessly. Thank you Buford Family Dental!

This place is awesome!! I took my teenage daughter for a root canal, and the dentist was so gentle, she fell asleep during the procedure. It’s a warm and welcoming environment, and everyone makes you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose this place, and I would recommend Buford Family Dental to anyone.

Dr Patel takes pride in his craft! Everyone was thorough, kind, and no lectures! They took extra care to be sure I was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. I had minimal discomfort on the cleaning and fillings. We took breaks as needed and they were not shy with anesthetic! They were also on point with verifying my insurance so I knew exactly what was covered and what my cost would be. I'm so happy with the work I had done and would gladly recommend Dr. Patel and Sharon (hygienist) to anyone seeking a dentist who genuinely cares about his/her patients!
They truly have no idea the positive impact they have had on my long road to recovery. Thank You!!!

Buford Family Dental is the definition of perfection! I’ve been looking for a dentist for a couple of years now after being in Georgia and I’m glad I found BFD! Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond every visit. The office has been upgraded and refreshed since Dr. Patel and his staff have taken over. Very well trained and educated staff in the building. This is my go to Dentist from here on out! Thanks to all the staff at Buford Family Dental!

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were able to get me an appointment same day for a dental emergency. They made sure I knew everything that eased going on. I will definitely return.

I was suffering from severe pain from a tooth that I failed to take care of, to the point that 800mg Ibuprofen wouldn’t even help. I went to another dentist first and came to Buford Family Dental for a second opinion. What separated them from the others was the transparency. They showed me pictures, x-rays and gave me a lot of useful information to soak in prior to deciding on a root canal. The procedure was smooth, pain free and so far, effective. I’ll be returning to have a permanent crown put in place.

I had 3 cavities and the dentist did a great job. Not only was the office clean but I was taken in immediately with no wait time. the dentist is very professional and knows what he's doing. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. I highly recommend this dentistry.
