Periodontal disease, most commonly known as gum disease, is a dental condition caused by harmful bacteria in the mouth, usually residing in plaque and tartar (calculus). This degenerative disease causes gum tissue to become inflamed and recede from teeth. In accelerated stages of the disease, bone and soft tissue loss is common, resulting in the loss of one or more teeth.
Symptoms of gum disease include:
- Swollen or red gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Loose teeth
- Bad breath
- Difficulty chewing
- Gum recession
Our normal six-month dental exams include screening for periodontal disease. If it is found that you have periodontal disease, our dentists will determine the severity of the disease’s progression and create a treatment plan with you. This plan may include some of the following treatments:
- Periodontal maintenance (thorough dental cleanings)
- Scaling and root planing (deep cleanings that remove bacteria beneath the gums and in gum pockets)
- Antibiotic treatments (to help heal infected tissue)
Treatments will vary depending on your specific needs, and we will help you find the right ones to halt the progression of gum disease and restore your dental health. If you have any questions about gum disease treatments, contact our dental office today.
Excel Dentistry PC Reviews
I have been coming for the past 10 years and moved at least an hour away but I love the service so much that I’m willing to drive here to get all my dental needs.
Everyone is fantastic from Diana doing the cleaning, Tanya the exrays, Alex in reception, and Dr. Mayra. Friendly efficient staff.
If you want courtesy, professionalism and top notch dental care look no further than Excel Dentistry. They do everything under one roof and efficiently. Dr. Mayra's bedside manner and techniques are white glove. Truly perfect! Hygienist Diana has the most gentlest touch and you actually get super relaxed when she works on you. Like butter! Tania and Jersey make you feel like you're not even at the dentist and are so kind and thorough. I started falling asleep! I can't recommend Excel Dentistry enough. They cover all of your concerns and their bedside manner with their patients is unbelievable. From the front door to the dentist chair top shelf service. I see a huge difference in my teeth already in under 5 months. You feel immediately at ease the moment you walk through the door. Looking to change dentists or just get a check up?
