Providing Relief from Periodontal Disease. Did you know that over 45% of U.S. adults suffer from moderate to severe periodontal disease? From mild gum inflammation to the more serious periodontitis, this condition can wreak havoc on your oral health, leading to soft tissue and bone damage, and even tooth loss. But fear not, because our experienced dentist is here to offer effective periodontal treatments for both new and existing patients grappling with any form of gum disease.

The root cause of gum disease often stems from poor oral hygiene habits. Daily brushing and flossing, coupled with regular professional exams and cleanings, are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. When these practices are neglected, plaque can accumulate on teeth and along the gumline. If left untreated, this plaque can harden into tartar, which only a dental professional can remove.

But what happens if gum disease is left unchecked? Without timely treatment, tartar buildup can progress, leading to advanced gum disease known as periodontitis. Symptoms include red, swollen gums that bleed easily, even during routine activities like brushing or eating. At this stage, professional periodontal treatment is crucial to halt the disease’s progression.

If left untreated, periodontitis can lead to irreversible damage, with gums pulling away from the teeth, forming pockets that harbor bacteria and exacerbate oral health issues. Without prompt intervention, bone, gums, and soft tissues may be irreparably compromised, potentially resulting in tooth loss.

Numerous factors contribute to the development of periodontal disease, including poor oral hygiene, diabetes, smoking, and hormonal changes. Medications and conditions like AIDS can also increase the risk. Recognizing the signs of gum disease is crucial: chronic bad breath, sensitive or bleeding gums, and difficulty chewing are just a few symptoms to watch out for.
