Stop Gum Disease in Its Early Stages for Great Results

Gum disease can sneak up on you if you’re not careful. In fact, it is estimated that 48 percent of people ages 30-64 have some type of gum disease. Furthermore, research shows that gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. In its early stages, there are often no visible signs. That’s why it’s important to have regular exams by a dentist to catch the disease. We offer several ways to treat gum disease, depending on your situation and how severe your condition is:

  • Laser Treatment – Our gentle, low-power laser will painlessly remove bacteria and damaged tissue, sealing back your gums at the same time.
  • Scaling and Root Planing – We’ll use this deep cleaning technique to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and below the gumline.
  • Antibacterial Rinse – This medication will rid your gums of bacteria that have built up on your gums.
  • Topical Antibiotics – Antibiotics will help your gums begin the healing process and make them whole again.

Common Questions About Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to get rid of plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and below your gumline. At Alex Martin, DDS, we offer several types of gum disease treatment, including scaling and root planing, laser treatment, an antibacterial rinse, and topical antibiotics. Dr. Martin will help you decide on the right type of treatment based on your needs.

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that builds up around your gumline. This leads to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulate. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.

What are gum disease symptoms?

You may not see the signs of gum disease on your own until its advanced stages, which is why it is often referred to as a silent killer. It’s also why your routine dental exams are so important. The earlier you spot periodontal infection, the easier it is to manage and, in many cases, reverse. Common symptoms include red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, loose teeth, and persistent bad breath.
