Gum disease treatment isn’t at the top of most patients’ minds—until it becomes a major concern. When a buildup of bacteria begins to spread in a patient’s gums, the effects can be devastating. An infection can even affect the general health of patients, contributing to:
- Heart disease.
- General inflammation.
- Birth complications.
Gum infections can also threaten your teeth, which could lead to procedures such as tooth extractions we’d rather avoid, as well as causing chronic bad breath (which can threaten your relationships).
We have a history of many years of successful periodontal disease treatment. If you might have a periodontal—or gum—condition, contact Smileology now for professional care. You can also schedule your bi-annual dental checkups with us, and we’ll automatically manage your gum health for you.
Benefits of Gum Disease Treatment
Your gums are a vital part of your dental system. Healthy gums supply the foundation of nutrients and structure that teeth need for long-term stability. Unhealthy gums don’t provide a nourishing environment for teeth.
At Smileology, we use a thorough diagnosis method called OralDNA®. This helps us identify the type of bacteria present on your gums. With that data, we can choose a gum disease treatment plan to target that type. This is one of the ways that we ensure a successful periodontal disease treatment for you.
We then use gentle but effective techniques to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums, eliminating bacterial buildup. We’ll monitor your gums in your later appointments to ensure that the problem does not return.
Contact Smileology for Better Gum Health
We’ll check your gum health during regular checkups. But we also encourage you to contact us if you’re pregnant, have family members with gum disease, or have red or swollen gums. These are all risk factors for gum disease.
If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort when you arrive here, we’ll use our best gum disease treatment techniques to make you comfortable and relieve the problem quickly. Our dentists and team members genuinely care about our patients and are passionate about supporting your health. Call Smileology for periodontal disease treatment today.
