Because it’s so common in middle-aged Americans, many people have to think about periodontal disease and its effects like tooth loss. The sooner a person gets the disease treated, the lesser the effects of the disease will be. In fact, it’s possible to reverse the disease only during its first stage. The first stage of periodontal disease is gingivitis. Good oral hygiene and regular checkups with a periodontist can treat and reverse gingivitis.
The second stage of periodontal disease is slight periodontal disease. It isn’t reversible, but it is manageable with professional assistance. Deep cleaning (known as scaling and root planning) may be necessary. During the third stage of periodontal disease, moderate periodontal disease, scaling and root planning is necessary to prevent the fourth stage of the disease. In advanced periodontal disease, bone loss is a very serious concern and a probability. It requires periodontal surgery or periodontal laser therapy.
As you can probably tell by now, it’s important to treat periodontal disease in its initial stage or earlier stages. It’s also very inexpensive to get periodontal treatment during the initial stage of the disease, and sometimes treatment isn’t even necessary at all, as good oral hygiene and regular checkups may be enough to manage and reverse the gingivitis.
If a periodontal treatment is necessary, the cost depends on the type of procedure that’s necessary, the stage of the periodontal disease, and the provider of the treatment. The cost of treatment can vary from $500 to $10,000. Many insurance companies may cover at least a part of the cost. At Great Smiles Family Dentistry, our pricing is quite affordable and we work with most major insurers to help you cover the cost of your treatment and/or checkups with us.
If you’re not sure whether you can afford a periodontal treatment, then ask Great Smiles about it. We may be able to negotiate a better payment option with your insurer or help you set up a payment plan. Remember, it’s important to address issues with your teeth and gums right away, and the longer you wait, the more expensive a procedure you may eventually need. There’s no harm whatsoever in reaching out to us at Great Smiles to discuss your oral/gum health and the treatments we can provide. A simple consultation is the first step!
