The Journey to Healthy Gums

Our approach to treating periodontal disease is rooted in compassion and expertise. Dr. K believes in a minimally invasive, patient-focused strategy. We start with gum therapy, which involves gently removing plaque and tartar buildup. This non-surgical approach, combined with the right products and diligent homecare, is often all it takes to kickstart your journey back to healthy gums.

Frequently Asked

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition where the gums become inflamed, often leading to swelling, redness, bleeding, and in severe cases, tooth loss. It's primarily caused by plaque buildup and can be exacerbated by factors like smoking, poor oral hygiene, and certain health conditions.

How can I tell if I have periodontal disease?

Common signs include red, swollen, or bleeding gums, bad breath, gum recession, and in advanced stages, loose teeth. Regular check-ups are essential as some symptoms may not be easily noticeable.

Why are professional cleanings important for periodontal health?

Professional cleanings are crucial because they remove plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing can't. These cleanings help prevent gum disease and are recommended every 2-4 months, especially for individuals with a history of periodontal issues.

Can periodontal disease be cured?

Early stages of periodontal disease, like gingivitis, can be reversed with proper oral hygiene and professional care. Advanced stages require more intensive treatments but can be managed effectively with regular dental visits and home care.

What happens during a professional cleaning?

During a cleaning, a dental professional will carefully remove plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. They may also perform scaling and root planing if necessary, to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums.

Is periodontal treatment painful?

Modern periodontal treatments are designed to be as comfortable as possible. Some patients may experience mild discomfort, but local anesthesia and sedation options are available to ensure a pain-free experience.

How can I maintain periodontal health at home?

Good oral hygiene is key. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, using an antiseptic mouthwash, and avoiding tobacco products. Eating a balanced diet and avoiding excessive sugar can also help maintain healthy gums.

Are there any risk factors for periodontal disease?

Yes, risk factors include smoking, diabetes, certain medications, hormonal changes, and genetics. It's important to discuss your health history with your dentist for a personalized care plan.

What if I have a dental implant, do I still need regular cleanings?

Absolutely. Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. Regular cleanings help prevent gum disease around the implant, ensuring its longevity and health.

How often should I visit the dentist for periodontal health?

Individuals with periodontal concerns should visit their dentist every 2-4 months for cleanings and checkups. This frequency allows for early detection and management of any issues.
