Our dentists and team check for signs of periodontal disease during each of your regular dental exams. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, our dentists will work with you to create a treatment plan to fight the disease and improve your oral health.
Periodontal (gum) disease is a damaging dental condition caused by bacteria trapped in plaque. These bacteria infect and inflame the gum tissues, causing periodontal disease and eventually leading to gum recession, bone loss and tooth loss. Some common signs of gum disease include easy bleeding of the gums; loose teeth; and red, swollen or tender gums.
There are a variety of treatment options available to help you manage periodontal disease and regain your oral health. These treatments range from additional professional cleanings and improved oral hygiene at home to scaling and root planing, antibiotic treatments and gum surgery. During your initial consultation, our dentists will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine the severity of the disease. We will then discuss your treatment options with you and design a personalized treatment plan to bring the disease under control.
