Comprehensive Gum Disease Treatment & Prevention
Gum disease is one of the most common dental problems, causing swollen, bleeding gums, bad breath, and even tooth loss. The great news is gum disease can be prevented and treated with proper care and attention from both you and your dentist.
Along with a thorough cleaning, scaling, polishing, flossing, and fluoride treatment, we provide all our patients with bacteria testing at every cleaning appointment. This extra step allows us to create a more effective gum disease treatment plan, promoting healthy gums and better overall health.
What Is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums at the place where your teeth and gums meet. It can develop when plaque, which contains bacteria, isn’t brushed and flossed away daily and hardens into tartar.
This tartar can lead to an infection below the gum line, resulting in gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease. Untreated, gingivitis can eventually lead to more severe gum disease, called periodontitis.
