Your Journey to Optimal Oral Health Starts Here

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, can significantly impact not just your oral health but your overall well-being. Our center specializes in both non-surgical and surgical treatments designed to combat this pervasive condition, restoring your gums to their optimal health.

Whether you’re dealing with the early stages of gum disease or in need of more advanced periodontal care, our team is here to guide you every step of the way. From your initial consultation to your final treatment and beyond, we’re committed to ensuring your experience is as comfortable and effective as possible.

Signs You Need to See a Periodontist

Preventing gum disease is critical for maintaining your overall oral health. However, recognizing the early signs that warrant a visit to a periodontist can be the key to preventing advanced periodontal disease. If you notice any of the following symptoms, it's time to call your periodontist:

  • Bleeding Gums: Experiencing bleeding during brushing or flossing is not normal; it's often the first sign of gum disease.
  • Receding Gums: If your teeth appear longer or you notice your gum line pulling away, this could indicate gum recession.
  • Persistent Bad Breath: Chronic bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth can be a sign of bacterial infection under the gum line.
  • Loose Teeth: A feeling of looseness in one or more teeth can signal that the supporting structures are being compromised by gum disease.
  • Swollen, Red, or Tender Gums: Any changes in the color or comfort of your gums can be early indicators of gum disease.

The Impact of Periodontal Care on Your Overall Health

Periodontal health is intrinsically linked to your overall well-being. By addressing gum disease and its related conditions, we not only restore the health and aesthetics of your smile but also help prevent related health issues, such as heart disease and diabetes, associated with untreated periodontal disease.

Our Comprehensive Gum Treatments & Solutions

At our center, we're not just treating periodontal disease; we're restoring smiles and changing lives. Join us on the journey to optimal oral health and discover the difference that professional, compassionate care can make.

Some of our specialized services include:

Gum Disease Treatment

Our comprehensive approach to gum disease treatment includes both non-surgical and surgical options, tailored to the severity of your condition and your personal preferences.

  • Non-Surgical Treatments: For early stages of gum disease, we focus on non-invasive methods such as scaling and root planing, deep cleaning procedures that remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smooth out the tooth root to promote healing.
  • Surgical Treatments: In more advanced cases, we may recommend surgical interventions like gingivectomy, a procedure designed to remove diseased gum tissue and restore the health of your gums.

LANAP Therapy

LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) represents the forefront of periodontal therapy. This minimally invasive laser treatment effectively targets and removes only the diseased tissue without cutting into healthy gums, offering a faster healing time and less discomfort compared to traditional surgery.

Addressing Gum Recession

Gum recession is a common problem that can lead to tooth sensitivity and aesthetic concerns. Our gum recession treatments focus on restoring the gum line to its natural position, protecting exposed roots, and improving the appearance of your smile.

Tissue Grafting

To combat gum recession, we can perform tissue grafting procedures, using tissue from another part of your mouth to cover exposed roots, reduce sensitivity, and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my insurance cover periodontal treatment?

Coverage for periodontal treatment varies by insurance plan. Many plans cover a portion of the cost for procedures deemed medically necessary, but coverage for cosmetic treatments may be limited. It's advisable to review your insurance benefits and discuss payment options with your dental office.

What is LANAP?

LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is an advanced treatment option for periodontal disease that uses laser technology to remove infected tissue and bacteria without the need for cutting or sutures. This procedure promotes regeneration of gum tissue, offering an effective alternative to traditional surgery with less pain and a quicker recovery period.

How often should I visit the dentist for periodontal care?

Individuals with good oral health typically benefit from dental check-ups and cleanings every six months. However, those with periodontal disease or at high risk may require more frequent visits for monitoring and treatment. Your dental professional can provide personalized recommendations based on your specific needs.

What treatments are available for periodontal disease?

Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the disease and may include:

  • Non-Surgical Treatments: Such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line.
  • Surgical Treatments: Including flap surgery to clean root surfaces and gum grafts to repair recession.
  • LANAP: A minimally invasive laser treatment for gum disease that offers faster healing times and less discomfort.

What are the signs of periodontal disease?

Common signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums during or after brushing
  • Receding gums or longer appearing teeth
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
  • Loose or shifting teeth

If you notice any of these symptoms, it's important to consult with a dental professional for evaluation and treatment.

How can I prevent periodontal disease?

Preventing periodontal disease involves maintaining good oral hygiene practices, including:

  • Brushing teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing daily to remove plaque between teeth
  • Regular dental check-ups and cleanings to remove tartar and monitor gum health
  • Quitting smoking and managing health conditions like diabetes

What causes periodontal disease?

The primary cause of periodontal disease is plaque buildup, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth. If plaque isn't removed through regular brushing and flossing, it can harden into tartar, contributing to infection and inflammation of the gums. Other factors include genetics, smoking, diabetes, stress, and certain medications.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It ranges from mild gingivitis, which involves gum inflammation, to more severe periodontitis, which can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and other serious health issues if left untreated.
