Periodontal Maintenance & Gum Therapy
Have you noticed that your gums are swollen, red, or tender? Do your gums bleed easily, such as when you floss and brush your teeth? If so, you may suffer from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, is a condition that affects the gum tissues and can cause serious problems for your entire smile. Gum disease is caused by bacteria in plaque and tartar; when plaque and tartar build up on the teeth, the bacteria inflame and irritate the gum tissues. If this condition is not treated, it can lead to a receding gum line, bone loss, and tooth loss. In addition, research has shown that untreated periodontal disease is connected to several health complications, including:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Pregnancy complications
- Respiratory conditions
If you suffer from gum disease our dentists and dental team will do all we can to restore the health of your smile. We offer a number of periodontal treatments, including scaling and root planing (deep cleaning treatments). If you believe that you may have gum disease, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to schedule your visit. We are dedicated to helping you keep your smile healthy.
