Gum Disease Therapy

Gum Disease is also known as Periodontal Disease or Gingivitis. Gum disease is caused by bacteria that thrive around the teeth, which enter the gums, resulting in infected and swollen gums, which are painful and often bleed. Various symptoms of Gum disease may include bleeding, tenderness, receding gums, loose teeth, persistent bad taste and breath and formation of pockets between teeth and gum. Learn more about Gum Disease.

Gum Treatment

We offer various gum disease treatment services. Keeping your gums healthy is an integral part of dental hygiene. By having regular dental appointments we can help detect any gum disease and prevent any further damage to your gums. If you have gum disease, the treatment options depend on the severity of the disease. We offer affordable gum treatment services and serve everyone, regardless of age.

 

We can perform non-surgical treatments for Gum Disease, which include Scaling and Root Planing (a careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets and to smooth the root to remove bacteria), followed by therapy such as local delivery antimicrobials and host modulation, as needed on a case-by-case basis.

 

If you think you may have a form of gum disease, do not delay your dental check-up. A simple dental screening will help us diagnose and start you with the required treatment immediately. Once we determine the severity of the disease, we can eliminate the infection through non-surgical methods or restorative gum surgery.

 

How Dental Health Affects Overall Health

Research studies have shown that there is a strong connection between gum disease and heart disease, diabetes, pregnancy complications, respiratory disease, and other chronic conditions.

 

A periodontal infection below the gum line, which is brought about by the presence of disease-causing bacteria in the oral cavity, can move throughout the body and negatively affect your health in other ways.

 

To resolve this condition, it will be important for the patient to observe proper oral hygiene measures; this will halt the progression of the disease, reduce the risk of gum disease and reduce the development of other related systemic conditions.

For more information on gum disease treatment, please contact us and schedule your appointment.

 

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screening includes a careful examination of the entire oral cavity for any kind of abnormal cell growth. This is done by a professional dentist who will check the lips, gum tissue, inside lining of the cheek, tongue, the palate, throat and the tonsils for any abnormality. Sometimes, a visual examination alone is not enough to identify the symptoms of oral cancer. Therefore, we may suggest a few tests to be sure that there is no danger of oral cancer. The common tests for oral cancer screening are blue dye test and dental examination with light.

 

Oral screening process: why it is important

Cancer of the mouth is a disease that can be treated successfully if detected early. Regular dental checkups are therefore very essential. Oral screening for cancer is reasonably priced and is a painless and simple examination

 

In case of a wound or a cyst of any kind in the mouth, a simple biopsy can detect the presence of abnormal cells in the wound. In 90% of cases, if followed by proper treatment, oral cancer is generally curable.

 

Root Canal Treatments

What is a Root Canal?

Root canals are the cavities that exist inside the walls of a tooth. When there is tooth decay, the pulp may be in danger of permanent damage. In these situations, root canal treatment may be required to save the tooth before it decays further and is irreparably damaged.

 

During a root canal procedure, the pulp is cleaned and the pulp cavity is filled in order to prevent an infection from developing in the tooth. This procedure should quickly relieve your toothaches and stop any infection from progressing.

These are some common symptoms that indicate you might need a root canal treatment:

  • Tender gums which might also be swollen
  • Extreme sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • A severe toothache
