Soft Tissue Management copy

Soft Tissue Management is a treatment strategy to control your gum disease. If diagnosed with gum disease, our team can help get you back to feeling healthy.

At Hall Dental, our patients often ask us about what they can do to keep their gums healthy. Our answer varies by patient, but one thing remains the same: we can develop a personalized plan designed to maintain healthy gums for life. Here's just some of what we hear at Hall Dental.

How will I know if I need a soft tissue management plan?

During your regular check-up, our skilled dental team will examine your gums for areas that are infected or inflamed (or 'periodontal pockets'). These periodontal pockets are a sign of gum disease. If you have periodontal pockets, we may recommend a soft tissue management plan in order to prevent progression of gum disease.

What can I expect in a soft tissue management plan?

At Hall Dental, you can expect that your soft tissue management plan will be fully customized based on your unique needs. Your plan may include some of the following:

  • Frequent hygiene appointments
  • Root planning and scaling
  • Specialized home care routines
  • Antibiotics

In rare cases, surgical procedures may be required.

What results can I expect if I follow my soft tissue management plan?

Healthy Gums! The primary goal of any soft tissue management plan is to get it under control and get your gums back to health. Your plan will be designed to eliminate the inflammation and infected areas of your gums and root surfaces. By following your plan you may start to notice that your gums are not as tender or inflamed, that there is less bleeding or that it's stopped altogether. Of course, your dental hygiene team at Hall Dental will walk you through all of the progress you're making with regard to controlling periodontal disease. We'll be there every step of the way.
