Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease can oftentimes be difficult to notice because the symptoms may not be noticeable until the disease progresses into a more advanced stage.

A trained professional dentist will have the best chance of noticing the development of gum disease, which is why it’s so important to schedule routine checkups for your dental health.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

  • Red and Swollen Gums
  • Bleeding or Pain while Brushing and Flossing
  • Constant Bad Breath
  • Receding Gum Lines

Types of Gum Disease

Gingivitis is considered the less serious stage of gum disease compared to periodontitis, but neither should be taken lightly. Gum disease should be treated by a dental professional. The condition requires constant attention in order to slow the spread of bacteria, and to improve the health of your gums.

  • Gingivitis – This form of gum disease directly affects your gums. If left untreated, Gingivitis can develop into periodontitis.
  • Periodontitis – Periodontal disease is a more serious condition that affects the bones that support your teeth.

Treatment for Gum Disease

For mild issues with your gums, our dentists may perform a deep cleaning beneath the gum surface and schedule more frequent visits. In other instances, a referral to a periodontist (gum specialist) as a surgical procedure may be necessary, as gum or bone grafts may be needed to replace tissues that have been worn away from gum disease. The end goal of gum disease treatment is to thoroughly clean the gums and pockets from spreading bacteria to the rest of your teeth.

“I've always had a very good experience with Dr. Wayne and Dr. Keith over the past 15 years or so. They are also great with the kids, making them feel comfortable and turning the dentist visit into a treat rather than something they don't want to do.”
