Gum Disease Treatment for Oral Health
Are you experiencing oral bleeding or overly red and swollen gum tissue? These are common symptoms of gum disease (which is also referred to as periodontal disease). Gum disease is an infection that negatively affects your oral health and weakens your smile’s support system. It is very common in the United States and often goes untreated early on because the symptoms seem so mild. However, advanced cases can result in serious and permanent consequences for a patient’s health.
At Devoted Family Dental, you can trust in Dr. Ludu and Dr. Sharma to prioritize your wellbeing and help you feel well cared for. We provide comprehensive periodontal examinations and revitalizing therapy options in order to help your smile remain healthy and strong. Please contact us today if you have questions or if you are ready to schedule a visit.
How Do You Treat Gum Disease?
In its earliest stages, it may be possible to combat gum disease with more frequent cleanings at our practice. However, advanced forms will require a more in-depth form of therapy. Scaling and root planing is a comprehensive cleaning that targets the bacteria underneath the gum line and along the rough root surfaces of the teeth. We will smooth these surfaces as well so that the infection is less likely to return and the gum tissue is able to better reconnect to the teeth.
