Periodontal TherapyPeriodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease.
If your gums are swollen or bleed, these are symptoms that you may have periodontal disease. While Periodontal disease is common, it is recommended that you see a dentist regularly to receive treatment. It can be treated over a period of time with in-depth and frequent dental cleanings. It is important to address this disease as Periodontal disease is connected with heart disease, strokes, premature births, Diabetes and respiratory disease. Gum recession is a process in which the tissue that surrounds your teeth pulls away from the tooth. This can cause damage to the supporting bone. We offer gum-grafting surgery that is painless, quicker and prevents trauma.
From simple gum inflammation to serious diseasePeriodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to “periodontitis” (which means “inflammation around the tooth”). In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces (called “pockets”) that become infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to infection start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. If not treated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed. The teeth may eventually become loose and have to be removed.
