Project Description

Treatment of Gum Disease

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It is typically caused by the heavy buildup of plaque-a sticky film of bacteria-on the teeth. In advanced stages, periodontal disease can lead to sore, bleeding gums; painful chewing problems; and even tooth loss.

The symptoms of periodontal (gum) disease can include:

  • Bad breath that won’t go away
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Infected gums
  • Painful chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Receding gums

The main goal of the treatment of periodontal disease is to control the infection and decrease the localized and systemic inflammation.

Treatment will vary depending on the extent of the gum disease, but may include deeper cleanings, laser therapy and adjunctive medications. In some cases, surgery may be required.

A simple periodontal disease screening can be done by one of our exceptional hygienist or doctors.
