Keep Your Gums In Good Shape

Periodontal disease is more common than many people realize. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that nearly half of adults 30 and older have some form of this disease. How an infection is treated will depend on how severe it is. Your periodontics treatment may involve one or more of the following:

  • Scaling and Root Planing — This is a deep cleaning in which we remove plaque and tartar buildup on the roots of your teeth. We then smooth the surface of the tooth so it is easier for your gums to reattach.
  • LANAP — This technique uses dental lasers to evaporate infected tissue and preserve more of your healthy tissue.
  • Antibiotics — To prevent reinfection, it may be necessary to administer antibiotics to kill any lingering harmful bacteria.
  • Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®This procedure will restore receding gums to their original position without incisions or stitching required.

We also offer dental sedation that will help you stay relaxed and pain-free.

Recognize The Signs Of Gum Problems

It’s important to be proactive about your oral health, and there are a few ways to detect the early signs of a periodontal infection. You may notice:

  • Gums that look red, swollen, or both
  • Gums that bleed when you brush and floss

In the later stages, symptoms include lingering bad breath, pain when you eat, receding gums, and loose teeth.

That’s why it’s so important to come in for professional dental cleanings and exams, so we can examine your mouth for signs of an infection. Plus, our very own Dr. Page Barden is a program-trained periodontist. He routinely treats gum problems and the supporting structures of the teeth.
