Periodontal Disease

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

Healthy teeth and gums mean better overall health.

In addition to ensuring that you 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:

Heart Disease


Alzheimer’s Disease

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Premature and low birth weight babies

Respiratory Illnesses


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

Through a comprehensive examination, our experienced dentists will assess the health of your gums and identify any signs of periodontal disease.

Healthy gums are light pink and hug the teeth tightly. Swelling, bleeding, and pain all indicate the presence of gum disease.

By utilising advanced diagnostic tools, we can accurately evaluate the severity of the condition and formulate a personalised treatment plan. We take measurements of the pockets between the teeth and gums and check bone health with x-rays during the periodontal evaluation.



Early gum disease, which is reversible


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.

Treating Periodontal Disease

At Winning Smiles Dentists, we value each patient as an individual with unique oral health needs. Dr. Kaur takes the time to personally discuss your treatment options and guide you towards regaining optimal oral health. Additionally, she is passionate about sharing knowledge and will provide you with valuable tips to improve your gum health at home.

Effective treatment of periodontal disease requires a collaborative effort between the dentist and the patient. Dr. Kaur prioritises your comfort and can administer numbing techniques or offer nitrous oxide to alleviate any anxiety. By combining these professional treatments with enhanced home care practices, you can experience improved gum health and overall well-being.

This treatment includes:
Scaling and Root Planing – This deep cleaning procedure removes plaque and calculus (tartar) from below the gum line, smoothing the tooth roots and promoting gum reattachment.

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.
