What are periodontal treatments?
Periodontal treatments are therapies used for treating periodontal disease, which affects the gums and jawbone. It is a very common condition that may affect up to 80 percent of the people in the United States. In addition to being the most common cause of tooth loss, periodontal disease is linked to serious conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

Symptoms of periodontal disease include persistent bad breath, gums that bleed when being brushed, shifting teeth, puffy and red gums, loose teeth, and receding gums.

What are composite fillings?
Composite fillings, like the old silver or amalgam fillings, are used to repair decayed or damaged teeth. They are durable and strong and can be tailored to match the color of the patient’s teeth. They can be corrective, cosmetic, or both.

Composite fillings are best known as a treatment for cavities. They can also be used to fill gaps between teeth or to repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. The dentist will also use them to replace old amalgam fillings.

It usually takes only one appointment to place a filling. The dentist will remove the decayed or damaged part of the tooth, thoroughly clean the remainder, and then place the filling. They will then shape and polish it. The dentist will also provide after-care instructions.
