Gum Disease Treatment

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease (Gingivitis) often develops slowly without causing any pain and can begin at just about any age. Sometimes you may not have any symptoms until the disease has advanced and spread to the supporting bone (Periodontitis), which causes bone loss and tooth loss.

The term gum disease or periodontal disease describes bacterial growth and production of factor, which gradually destroys the tissue surrounding and supporting the teeth.

Warning Signs of Gum Disease

  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Red swollen and tender gums
  • Pus discharge
  • Loose or separating teeth
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth exposing the root

Therefore, it is very essential to have regular dental checkups and periodontal examination done, once every 3 months.

We are specializes in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases. And we can solve gum problems and using the latest techniques and minor periodontal surgical procedures.

Studies have shown a link between gum disease and serious health problems, such as, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, respiratory disease and preterm low birth weight babies. Therefore, getting your teeth cleaned cannot solve this problem; thus you need a specialist to accurately diagnose and treat these problems.

Procedures to treat Gum Disease

  • Non surgical Treatment (Scaling, Root planning, Local drug delivery)
  • Periodontal Surgery (pocket reduction procedure and regenerative procedure, soft tissue grafts.)
  • LASER: Our dentist will use a Laser to treat many gum problems to avoide a surgery.
  • Cosmetic Gum Surgery (it’s the correction of gummy smile, making dark gums into pink, root coverage procedures to cover the exposed roots/long teeth)
