PERIODONTAL (GUM) TREATMENTS

Gum Disease Can Hurt Your Mouth & Heart

Not only does periodontal disease often lead to tooth loss, but it is also linked to conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Gum Disease Can Be Reversible If We Catch It Fast

Periodontal (Gum) Treatments

Healthy teeth and gums mean better overall health.

In addition to ensuring that you can eat a nutritious diet full of fruits, vegetables, and other foods your body requires for optimum function, research has linked gum disease with many serious systemic conditions:

Diabetes

Heart Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Premature and low birth weight babies

Respiratory Illnesses

Cancer

At Winning Smiles Dental Surgery, we love seeing our active patients get the most out of life and enjoy healthy bodies and smiles. We provide a periodontal evaluation for every patient to identify gum disease and determine the best course of treatment.

Evaluating Periodontal (Gum) Disease

Healthy gums are light pink and hug the teeth tightly. Swelling, bleeding, and pain all indicate the presence of gum disease. We take measurements of the pockets between the teeth and gums and check bone health with x-rays during the periodontal evaluation.

Gingivitis

Early gum disease, which is reversible

Periodontists

Advanced gum disease, which we manage with specialized dental cleanings

Common periodontal disease symptoms include:

Bleeding when brushing or flossing

Inflammation and redness

Pain or Sensitivity

Gum Recession

Bad Breath

Pus near the Gumline

Mobile Teeth

Bone Loss

We will discuss any signs of gum disease with you and come up with a hygiene program that will help you get back on track to good oral health, fresh breath, and a comfortable smile.

Comfortable Dental Cleanings

We see our patients as individuals with unique needs. Dr. Kaur will sit down with you and discuss your options to regain your oral health. He also enjoys sharing knowledge and will go over ways you can improve your gum health at home.

Periodontal disease is best treated when the dentist and patient work together.

Often, we can improve gum health with a series of dental cleanings designed to eliminate tartar and bacteria from beneath the gumline. To ensure comfort, Dr. Kaur can numb the area or offer nitrous oxide to reduce anxiety. When combined with improved home care, you will feel healthier and happier!

Patients at Greater Risk for Gum Disease

While gum disease most often develops out of neglect or improper brushing and flossing habits, some conditions can lead to a higher risk of infection.

Pregnancy or hormone changes

Expecting mothers and women going through menopause have hormone fluctuations that can contribute to gum disease. Rather than avoiding the dentist, more frequent dental cleanings can protect your health and that of your child.

Medications and medical treatment

Certain medications and cancer treatments cause dry mouth, which makes gum disease more likely to develop. Specially designed products and additional dental prevention can protect your health when you need it most.

Reduced Dexterity

Patients with painful hands or joints may find it difficult to brush and floss effectively. Electric toothbrushes and gentle dental cleanings here in our Elk Grove dental office will help you maintain a healthy smile.
