SOFT TISSUE MANAGEMENT

SOFT TISSUE MANAGEMENT

Healthy Teeth Need Healthy Soft Tissue

Diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum and bone) disease vitally affects oral and physical health. Studies have linked gum disease to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other life-threatening conditions. Dentists design soft tissue management (STM) plans to achieve lifelong dental health by eliminating gum infection, inflammation, deep pockets and bleeding to achieve periodontal health.

An STM plan typically consists of:

  • A thorough periodontal exam including deep pocket measurements

  • Deep cleaning below the gumline into the pockets

  • Irrigating treated areas with medication

  • More frequent cleanings

  • A long-term home cleaning regimen

When treated in the early stages, the ravaging effects of periodontal disease can be stopped and kept under control. Munster Dental Care uses the most effective Soft Tissue Management processes and technologies to enable you to enjoy fresher breath and healthier gums and teeth.
