Mouth/Body Connection

Maintaining healthy gums isn’t only beneficial for your oral care, but can also protect you against severe illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Studies have revealed that if gum disease is neglected, it could lead to a higher risk of developing these life-threatening conditions. By practicing proper dental hygiene habits and booking regular checkups with your dentist, you can significantly reduce the danger of contracting one or more serious medical issues in the future.

What is Gum Disease?

It’s no secret that gum disease, or periodontal disease, continues to be one of the most prevalent oral health issues. Gingivitis is the initial stage and can emerge due to inadequate dental hygiene habits and hormonal fluctuations. That’s why it’s important to take care of your teeth and gums from an early age to reduce the risks of more serious outcomes if left untreated!

Our practice is vastly experienced in recognizing and curing gum diseases. We can give you a broad breakdown of the stages of periodontal complications, along with treatment alternatives like scaling and root planing. Contact us now to join forces toward restoring your oral well-being!

Gum Disease Therapy

Periodontal therapy, or gum disease treatment, is an effective means of combating plaque and tartar buildup. It comprises a range of treatments to control bacteria growth—such as scaling and root planing along with antibiotics—while reducing inflammation with professional cleaning techniques. With this comprehensive approach, you can have improved oral health in no time!

  • With a deep cleaning procedure, scaling expertly removes plaque and tartar buildup beneath the gum line. This is achieved with the help of specially-crafted instruments created to provide maximum precision in this process.
  • Through root planing, we can smooth the tooth roots to allow your gum tissue to reattach and remain healthy after plaque and bacteria have been eradicated.

Maintaining your dental health doesn’t have to be complicated—you can take control of it by addressing gum disease in its earliest stages. Gum disease therapy allows you to keep your gums healthy and prevent any systemic issues that may occur if left untreated. Avoid the worsening of this condition and make sure you are proactively taking preventive measures now, ensuring optimal oral hygiene!

Periodontal Surgery

When gum disease has progressed beyond its initial stage, periodontal surgery is often recommended to eliminate bacteria and tartar from around the teeth, reduce gingival pocket depth, bring back any lost tissue where possible, and put a stop to the progression of gum disease. It’s important to remember that this condition will continue deteriorating if proper methods are not taken—it compromises your dental health and overall wellness if left unchecked.

Gingivitis, when left untreated, can worsen and evolve into more serious stages of periodontal disease, thus making it harder to remove all the bacteria. As pocket depth reaches 5 mm or beyond, typical cleaning methods are unable to reach it, which is why gum surgery is usually recommended to treat and clean the damage caused to both gums and underlying bone.

Fortunately, with the right surgical treatment and better oral hygiene habits, the risks of losing teeth, causing further harm to your oral bones and tissues, and experiencing health problems linked to periodontal disease can be reduced.
