Periodontal (gum) disease is a serious bacterial infection that can cause significant damage to your gums, supporting bone, and teeth if undetected. If your gums bleed while brushing, or if they feel sore, swollen, or tender, we recommend that you visit our dentists to receive periodontal therapy. Seeking treatment at the first sign of gum disease is critical to regaining a healthy mouth.
What is Periodontal Therapy?
We encourage you to practice good oral hygiene at home and visit our dentists regularly for preventive care to help you avoid developing periodontal disease. However, if you do have gum disease, there are many types of periodontal therapy available. Thanks to advances in dentistry, gum disease treatments are now less invasive and more comfortable. Types of periodontal therapy include scaling and root planing, antibiotic treatment, and laser gum treatments. More aggressive therapy methods may be necessary in extremely severe cases. When you visit Aesthetic Dentistry Associates, our dentists will evaluate the condition of your mouth and the severity of your gum disease, and determine which treatment will be most effective for you.
