Healthy Gums for a Bright Smile

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the supporting tissues of the teeth. It is usually caused by poor oral hygiene habits that allow plaque to accumulate on the teeth and harden, eventually affecting the gums.

The first signs of periodontal disease present as swollen, bleeding gums. Early detection and treatment are crucial in preventing additional damage to the gums, as well as the supporting structures of the teeth.

Left untreated, gum disease can result in a variety of oral health issues, including inflamed and bleeding gums, a receding gum line, bacteria-filled pockets between the teeth and gums, and bone loss.

Routine dental check-ups and cleanings help preserve your gum health by removing excessive plaque and tartar buildup. Proper at-home oral hygiene practices are also important. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and rinsing your mouth with mouthwash.

Gum Disease Therapy

Periodontal treatment methods will depend on the type of the disease and how far along it has progressed. Your Emerald Park dentists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will best suit your particular case.

Following your periodontal treatment, our dental team will recommend that you have regular dental examinations to monitor the health of your gums. It is often recommended to have follow-up appointments about four times a year.

Periodontal Disease & Your Health

Periodontal diseases, also called gum diseases, are mainly the result of infections and inflammation of the gums and bone that surround and support the teeth. Without proper treatment, these diseases can also destroy the bone that supports your teeth and eventually cause them to loosen or lead to tooth loss.

When it comes to gum disease, consider the impact it can have on your whole body, not just your mouth. Not only can gum disease harm the health of your teeth and gums, but it can also impact your overall health. It can put you at greater risk for a number of health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and pneumonia.

The periodontal treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease. Our dentists will work with you to craft a treatment plan tailored to your specific case.
