Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a serious problem that we start to see occurring in many adult patients once they reach their 30s and 40s. Unfortunately, if left untreated, it can result in bleeding gums, bad breath, and loose teeth. At Sulens Dental, we’ll check your mouth for early signs of gum disease and implement the necessary treatment to get your mouth healthy again!
Our caring staff knows that bad breath is never ideal. We will never make you feel embarrassed by your periodontal disease and will provide you with the services and tips you need to achieve the following:
Additionally, periodontal disease is associated with a host of other medical problems, from diabetes to heart attacks. By treating signs of gum disease early on, we can reduce your overall risk for more serious health concerns.
When we treat your periodontal disease, we’ll use cleaning methods referred to as scaling and root planing. Scaling means that we’ll gently scrape off tartar that resides above and below the gum line. With root planing, we carefully remove spots on the tooth’s root where germs gather.
If your case is severe, we may suggest surgery or prescribe medication. Whatever treatment plan we develop, we’ll review our recommendations thoroughly with you so that you can make a well-informed decision about your dental care.
