Understanding Gum Disease
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common but preventable condition that can lead to tooth loss and other serious health complications if left untreated. At Miramar Smiles Dentistry, we specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, providing personalized care to restore and maintain your oral health.
Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease
Being aware of the early signs of gum disease can lead to prompt treatment and better outcomes:
- Red, swollen, or tender gums
- Bleeding while brushing or flossing
- Receding gums or teeth that appear longer
- Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
- Loose or shifting teeth
Our Gum Disease Treatment Services
We offer a range of treatments depending on the severity of the condition:
- Scaling and Root Planing: A deep-cleaning, non-surgical procedure where plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line are scraped away (scaling) and rough spots on the tooth root are made smooth (planing).
- Periodontal Maintenance: Ongoing treatment to prevent the severity of the disease from advancing.
- Gum Graft Surgery: Repairing the damage caused by receding gums.
- Laser Treatment: Removing inflamed gum tissue and promoting regeneration of healthy tissue.
- Regenerative Procedures: Reversing some of the damage by regenerating lost bone and tissue.
The Importance of Professional Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is not just an oral health issue; it can affect your overall well-being. Studies have linked periodontal disease to other health issues like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Getting professional treatment not only saves your teeth and gums but also can have a positive impact on your general health.
