Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a serious oral health condition that affects the tissues surrounding the teeth. It typically starts with bacterial growth in the mouth and can lead to inflammation, gum recession, and even tooth loss if left untreated. Our periodontal services aim to diagnose, treat, and manage various stages of periodontal disease effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know!
What are the common signs and symptoms of periodontal disease?
Common signs and symptoms of periodontal disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, loose teeth, and changes in the way your teeth fit together when you bite.
Who is at risk for periodontal disease?
Anyone can develop periodontal disease, but certain factors can increase your risk, including poor oral hygiene, smoking, diabetes, hormonal changes (such as pregnancy or menopause), genetic predisposition, and certain medications.
How is periodontal disease diagnosed?
Periodontal disease is typically diagnosed through a comprehensive periodontal examination, which may include visual inspection of the gums, measuring pocket depths around the teeth, dental X-rays, and other diagnostic tests.
What are the treatment options for periodontal disease?
Treatment for periodontal disease depends on the severity of the condition. Non-surgical treatments, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), are often recommended for early-stage gum disease. In advanced cases, surgical interventions, such as gum grafting or pocket reduction surgery, may be necessary to restore gum health.
Can periodontal disease be prevented?
Yes, practicing good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and scheduling regular dental check-ups and cleanings, can help prevent periodontal disease. Avoiding tobacco use, maintaining a balanced diet, and managing underlying health conditions can also reduce your risk of developing gum disease.
What is the importance of periodontal maintenance?
Periodontal maintenance involves regular cleanings, monitoring, and personalized oral hygiene instructions to help prevent the recurrence of periodontal disease and maintain the health of your gums long-term. It plays a crucial role in preserving the results of periodontal treatment and preventing further damage to your oral health.
