Best gum disease treatment options from expert dentist in Centerville

What is gum disease?

Gum (or periodontal) disease is an infection that causes the gums to become inflamed, sore, and bleed. It must be addressed quickly to prevent it from causing further problems such as pain, loose teeth, or the loss of teeth and supporting bone structure.

Is gum disease serious?

The severity of gum disease often depends on how quickly it was addressed. In its earliest stage, gum disease is called gingivitis and can be treated and reversed. If it is not caught early, and continues to progress, it can pose a risk to your oral and overall health.

How is gum disease treated?

Most people notice symptoms of gingivitis when they see blood while brushing their teeth. At this stage, a professional teeth cleaning can be performed to remove the built-up plaque and tartar on the teeth. In some cases, the dentist will recommend using a prescription mouthwash to ensure that bacteria are eliminated. If the gum disease has progressed, a deeper cleaning known as scaling and root planing may be required to ensure that all the bacteria are removed from the teeth, gum tissue, and roots. This procedure is more invasive but is the most thorough way to treat gum disease.

If you suspect you have gum disease, call Alex Bell Dental (937) 435 7311 to schedule an appointment.
