Periodontics Fredericksburg, Virginia

When one is diagnosed with gum disease, it means that the periodontal tissues providing support for their teeth have become infected. Gum disease or periodontal disease begins when certain bacteria naturally present in plaque produce toxins that irritate the soft tissues causing inflammation. Left untreated the plaque will form into hard tartar that can only be removed at the dental office. The tartar is a haven for the bacteria and toxins, and will eventually lead to bone loss around the teeth.

Types of Gum Disease Treatments:


Mild gum disease such as gingivitis can typically be resolved through good flossing and brushing habits, as well as a thorough teeth cleaning from a dental hygienist or dentist. Gingivitis is reversible with proper care. Patients who are in the more advanced stages of periodontal disease will likely need to undergo a deep cleaning procedure to successfully remove all the tartar and plaque below the gum line. The techniques employed by the dental hygienist or dentist, during the scaling and root planning treatments, help the gums reattach themselves to the teeth, and thereby preventing further bone loss.


Sometimes, a deep cleaning is not enough to effectively solve the most advanced stages of periodontal disease, and surgical treatment becomes necessary. At Fredericksburg Family Dentistry we also provide the following periodontal surgery procedures:

  • Soft Tissue & Bone Grafts
  • Guided Bone Tissue Regeneration

I had anxiety which kept me from seeing a dentist for a long time. Had I known about this office I would have saved myself a lot of trouble. Dr Najafe, the hygienists, and staff are incredibly patient, caring, and professional. I honestly can not recommend this practice enough.
