Periodontal Treatment Methods

How do we treat gum disease?

Dr. Culberson’s practice provides a variety of non-surgical and surgical services. We pride ourselves on the fact that we formulate your individual plan of treatment based upon thorough diagnosis and judgment as to what option(s) have the highest probability of successful treatment.  The informed consent process will cover the advantages and disadvantages of all feasible treatment options.

Many times, the early stages of periodontal disease can be treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. Even in advanced cases, non-surgical periodontal therapy may precede surgical therapy to decrease inflammation, limit the extent of surgical therapy and minimize the chance of postoperative infection.
