Woman smiling in dental chairPeriodontal issues, often referred to as gum disease, can bring concerning symptoms to patients of all ages. Often, the following are among the first signs to surface:

  • Ongoing bad breath
  • Red, swollen or tender gums
  • Unusual new spaces between teeth or loose teeth
  • A receding gum line which leads to “longer” looking teeth
  • Bite changes or a feeling of the jaws not fitting together as they once did

If these symptoms sound familiar, contact the practice to identify and resolve the issue with the most advanced gum treatments offered today.

Treatments for Gum Disease

Because each patient is unique, the team will need to evaluate each person to determine the best course of oral therapy.

To start, the dentist will gather a patient’s health history and take a look inside their mouth to get a better understanding of the problem. Professionals in Dentistry always strives to give patients the most conservative treatment option available, so they can rest easy knowing their needs are always considered first.

If a deep clean is recommended, the dentist will lift the gums to clean underneath them to remove plaque, which is much deeper than a usual cleaning appointment. This typically isn’t painful, though numbing can be provided for patients who are uncomfortable.

Can Gum Disease Be Prevented?

Regular dental hygiene, like flossing and brushing, can certainly help prevent periodontal disease from developing and will even help preserve a patient’s overall dental health. The Professionals in Dentistry team firmly believes that prevention is best. As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
