Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition caused by harmful bacteria in the mouth. These bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissues, and if left untreated, they can eventually lead to gum recession, tooth loss and bone loss. Gum disease is also linked to a number of systemic health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory disease and pregnancy complications. This makes diagnosing and treating periodontal disease as early as possible crucial to your oral and overall health.
After our dentists and team have diagnosed you with gum disease, we will create a comprehensive treatment plan to fight the disease and help you improve your oral health. Most treatment plans begin with full-mouth debridement to thoroughly clean your mouth. Our team will then provide you with an antimicrobial rinse and home care instructions. One week after your initial appointment, you will return to our office for scaling and root planing treatment, which will be followed by your home care routine as previously provided. Three weeks later, our dentists will evaluate your gum again and determine how frequently you will need periodontal maintenance to prevent the disease from returning to your mouth.
