Expert Care for Your Gums

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is a prevalent condition that can significantly impact your oral health and general well-being if left untreated. At our center, we specialize in both surgical and non-surgical treatments to address the full spectrum of periodontal health issues, from early-stage gingivitis to advanced periodontitis. Our expert team utilizes the latest advancements in dental care to provide effective solutions that not only treat gum disease but also restore the beauty and functionality of your smile.

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.

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:

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

Tissue grafting is a key component of our periodontal treatment offerings, designed to address gum recession and loss of gum tissue. By transplanting healthy tissue to areas where the gums have receded, we can enhance the aesthetics of your gums, reduce sensitivity, and prevent further recession, ensuring the longevity of your teeth and implants.

Gum Disease Treatment: A Dual Approach

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-stage gum disease, we offer deep cleaning procedures, including scaling and root planing, to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line and eliminate bacterial infections.
  • Surgical Treatments: Advanced cases may require surgical interventions, such as gingivectomy, to remove diseased gum tissue and restore gum health.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I see a periodontist?

If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, your periodontist might recommend more frequent visits, typically every 3-4 months for periodontal maintenance. Those with good oral health may only need an annual check-up.

Who is at risk for periodontal disease?

While anyone can develop periodontal disease, certain factors increase risk, including smoking, diabetes, poor oral hygiene, genetics, and conditions that reduce immunity like certain medications or diseases.

What are the signs of periodontal disease?

Common signs include:

  • Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing
  • Swollen, red, or tender gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth

If you notice any of these symptoms, it's essential to seek professional evaluation and treatment.

What is LANAP, and how does it differ from traditional surgery?

LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a minimally invasive laser treatment for gum disease. Unlike traditional surgery, LANAP causes less discomfort, requires no cutting or stitching, and promotes faster healing, making it a preferred choice for many patients and periodontists.

Can periodontal disease be prevented?

Yes, with diligent oral hygiene practices including regular brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings, you can significantly reduce your risk of developing periodontal disease. Lifestyle choices, such as quitting smoking, also play a crucial role in prevention.

How is periodontal disease treated?

Treatment varies based on the disease's severity:

  • Non-Surgical: Early stages often require scaling and root planing, a deep-cleaning process that removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line.
  • Surgical: Advanced cases might need surgical interventions, such as flap surgery for deeper cleaning or grafting procedures to restore lost gum tissue or bone.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, often referred to as gum disease, is a condition characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It progresses in stages, starting with gingivitis, which is reversible, to more advanced forms like periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss if untreated.
