The Foundation of a Healthy Smile

The Foundation of a Healthy Smile

Healthy gums are paramount to maintaining excellent oral health. Roughly 80% of people experience some form of gum disease in their lifetime, even our best patients who are great at-home care can experience gum infections as the signs are largely unnoticeable.

All forms of gum disease have one thing in common – they begin with a bacterial infection that attacks the gums. As the disease progress issues such as bad breath, loose teeth, bleeding gums, and sensitive teeth are signs for concern.

In addition, the Periodontal Bacteria that causes the disease can also contribute to heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and premature or low birth weights.

Our Periodontics Gum Therapy Services

Our expert dentists will identify the disease and provide treatment to eliminate infection, fight bacteria, and encourage normal gum growth. It’s important to keep to your scheduled dental appointments in order to cut off the disease by treating the causes that include:

Plaque and tarter that is left untreated sets in leading to an inflammation of the gums. The gums become swollen and can bleed. If you are experiencing these signs it is important to receive a professional cleaning to fend off the disease and prevent further complications.

When Gingivitis is left untreated the gums become inflamed directly around the tooth and plaque spreads below the gum line. Left untreated teeth can become loose and may need to be removed. Therefore, if you are experiencing these signs time is running low, and a professional dental treatment is absolutely necessary to get your oral health back on track.
