Periodontal disease – better known as gum disease – is more common than you might think. Most people believe that as long as they don’t experience gum pain, they’re in the clear. Unfortunately though, that’s often not the case.
Gum disease can occur with or without pain.
If you notice any signs of redness, irritation, or swelling of your gums, be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible so one of our fabulous dentists can assess the situation and offer some helpful solutions.
The good news is that most periodontal disease is treatable. Come out to whichever of our two locations are closest to you and experience firsthand what a difference quality, compassionate dental care can make on your oral health.
We’ll likely start with a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums. With continued preventative care after this appointment, many patients won’t require additional active treatment.
If you do, though, know that you’ll be in great hands!
As needed, we will offer you oral surgery options that can be done right onsite as an outpatient at our office. Ask us about:
- Scaling and root planing
- Bone grafts
- Soft-tissue grafts
- Membrane filters
- Tissue-stimulating proteins
- Bite guards
Losing teeth due to gum disease is always the last option. Don’t wait another day to find out how we can help you improve your oral health, eliminate oral discomfort, and preserve your smile.
