Research shows that gum health plays an integral role in overall general health. Gum disease has been linked to systemic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. With periodontal therapy, we can help you overcome gum disease and regain optimum oral health.
Do your gums bleed? Do you have tender or swollen gums? Do you have a consistent bad taste in your mouth? Some people don’t realize that these are symptoms of gum disease. We provide non-surgical periodontal therapy if you’re suffering from gum disease. Non-surgical periodontal therapy involves scaling and root planing to clean the infected gum pockets around the base of your teeth and make the pockets less hospitable to bacteria and debris going forward.
While gum disease may be accompanied by symptoms such as bleeding gums and a bad taste in your mouth, sometimes this dental health problem shows no signs at all. That’s why it’s so important to see us regularly for family dentistry visits. The earlier we can detect your gum disease issue, the earlier we can begin periodontal therapy, upping the odds of a more successful treatment.
