Do your gums bleed easily, such as when you floss or brush your teeth? Are your gums swollen, tender, or redder than usual? If so, you may be suffering from gingivitis, which is the early stage of gum disease. If you’ve noticed that your gums have begun to recede or that your teeth are loose, you may be experiencing the signs of periodontitis, which is advanced gum disease. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is caused by the bacteria found in plaque. As plaque and tartar build up on the teeth, the bacteria irritate, inflame, and eventually infect the gum tissues. When left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to bone loss and eventually tooth loss. In order to prevent these serious consequences, our dentists provide personalized treatment for gum disease at Country Club Dental.
Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease) Treatment
Periodontal treatment for gingivitis may include improved at-home dental hygiene or additional professional cleanings. For advanced periodontitis, you may benefit from antibiotic treatment, deep cleanings (scaling and root planing), or gum surgery. To determine which treatment would be best for your specific needs, Drs. Sonny and Fara Afshar will carefully examine your smile and discuss all of your symptoms and preferences with you. If you suspect you may suffer from gum disease, we encourage you to call or visit us today at Country Club Dental today. We are committed to improving your dental health!
