Periodontal disease

Powerful tools for difficult cases

Urgent tooth care


Between 30% and 50% of the people in the United States suffer from some form of periodontal disease. And 10% have a more severe form of the disease that goes beyond gingivitis, where the gums pull away from the teeth and become infected. For these patients, Philips Sonicare products can help improve oral health while brushing at home.  

Oral health at home

Treatments for periodontitis vary depending on the extent of the disease, but any type of treatment requires a regimen of home oral care that helps change existing habits. The body’s natural response to infection attacks the bone and connective tissue that holds teeth in place. While the bulk of the treatment is performed in your office, the foundation of long-term care is built on tools that can help sustain good oral care practices at home. 

The benefits of power brushing

Philips Sonicare toothbrushes have been clinically proven not only to reduce overall plaque and interproximal plaque, but also reduce gingival inflammation and probing depth in the course of regular use over six months. For many patients, these toothbrushes are more than an effective plaque remover to maintain a healthy smile. They are a proven, effective tool in the fight against periodontitis.
