What Can We Do for Gum Disease?
First, when you visit us, we inspect your mouth to determine the severity of the gum disease. Gum disease happens in various stages. First, gum disease manifests as gingivitis. You might have red or bleeding gums from plaque buildup. Then, gum disease becomes periodontitis, which itself can have different categories. Periodontitis might include bone or tooth loss, pockets, and receding gums.
After we know what stage your gum disease is, we can provide the right treatment. Gingivitis is often treatable with regular dental cleanings. We can easily remove built-up plaque and calcium. Additionally, with proper dental hygiene, you can reverse the symptoms and get your teeth back to normal.
With periodontitis, treatment depends on the level of periodontitis you have. Scaling and root planing can help reverse and treat periodontitis. This procedure removes tartar and plaque and makes tooth roots smoother to prevent bacteria buildup. However, with advanced periodontitis, you often need to see a specialist, who our dental office can recommend.
