Gum Disease Treatment

woman in blue dress having toothacheGum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is one of the most common health problems on the planet – in fact, studies indicate that up to 80% of the population may be currently experiencing it, whether they’re aware of it or not. Gum disease is defined as a bacterial oral infection, and while it may seem relatively mild in the beginning, untreated cases can lead to destructive consequences, including bone deterioration and tooth loss. Research has shown that it may even negatively contribute to whole-body disorders like heart disease and diabetes. At Flawless Smile Dentistry, Dr. Ali Torabi takes this threat very seriously, and he and the rest of our team will work with you to diagnose and treat your condition as early on as possible.

Do I Have Gum Disease?

There are several risk factors associated with gum disease, including smoking, tobacco use, the presence of diabetes, routine stress, certain medications, bruxism, and (of course) poor oral hygiene. Patients can keep an eye out for the following symptoms as well, which are clear indications of an infection:

Treatment Options

Once Dr. Torabi has successfully identified the presence of gum disease, our recommendation for treatment will depend on the severity of your condition. In early cases, more frequent hygiene appointments may be all that’s necessary to help reverse any mild irritation and damage. Once the condition has progressed, scaling and root planing is an in-depth cleaning that can help patients avoid the need for surgical intervention; the process involves cleaning away bacteria from under the gum line and the rough tooth root surfaces. Alternatively, state-of-the-art soft tissue treatment can eliminate diseased tissue precisely and comfortably; most patients don’t even require sutures afterwards.
