Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease, most often characterized by bleeding gums, is a widespread issue that commonly leads to tooth loss. It is caused by plaque bacteria that accumulate on the teeth, usually resulting from not having a thorough teeth cleaning. Modern dentistry provides many effective treatment options for different stages of this progressive disease.

Treating the earliest stage of gum disease, gingivitis, is often possible with just one professional cleaning and further attentive daily care. However, the more progressive stage is called periodontitis. It is usually accompanied by weaknesses of the connective tissue and bone. Teeth become loose and completely break down. Infected gums can occur at any age and only expert treatment is able to stop this painful process.

Gum Disease Treatment by Our Dental Professionals

Regular dental visits and professional cleanings are very important to prevent any oral problems. We provide deep cleaning of the teeth to remove all the plaque and tartar which result in periodontal disease. One or a few procedures can be enough to treat gum disease and greatly improve oral health.

Dr. Holmes or our Dental Hygiene Specialists also can  recommend special medications to control the state of gums and accelerate recovery. We will teach you how to brush your teeth and floss correctly and will select techniques that are right for you. Proper home care and dental treatment will help you enjoy a lifetime with a beautiful smile.
