Periodontal Disease Treatment If you have periodontal disease, it is important to get it treated in order to get back to full health before it gets out of hand. Our periodontists can provide periodontal disease treatment.
South Ogden, Utah
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition primarily caused by bacteria found in plaque. The bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissues, and when left untreated, the gums can eventually begin to pull away from the teeth. Untreated periodontal disease can result in bone loss, tooth loss and gum tissue recession.
If your gums are swollen, red or tender, or if your gums bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. Other common symptoms of gum disease include loose teeth, painful chewing, persistent bad breath and receding gums that make your teeth appear longer than normal. Following an exam at our office, your periodontist and team will be able to determine whether you suffer from periodontal disease.
The treatment for gum disease is based upon your specific needs. Depending on the severity of the condition, your periodontist may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), or gum surgery. We strive to help you restore your oral health and halt the progress of the disease.
