Periodontal Treatments: Don’t Let Gum Disease Steal Your Smile!

Your gums are an integral part of overall oral health. So, when you spot signs of gum infection, including bleeding or swollen or tender gums, inform your dentist immediately before the disease progresses. Pasadena Prosthodontics in Pasadena, California, offers advanced gum treatments so you can enjoy a healthy, functional smile. 

Gingivitis Treatment in Pasadena CA Area

Why you shouldn’t ignore gum disease

Gum disease at its early stage (gingivitis) starts with mild symptoms like swelling and tenderness, so many patients brush them away. However, gum disease is a sneaky oral condition that silently causes damage, and before you know it, the damage is irreversible. Untreated gum disease causes gingival recession and damages the teeth-supporting ligaments, causing loose teeth that eventually fall out.  

What’s more, gum disease causes problems beyond your mouth. Severe infection in the mouth can seep into the bloodstream, causing damage to major organs like the kidney and liver. Recent studies have also shown that gum disease increases the risk of pregnancy complications, dementia, and heart disease!

Whether you have a mild or severe gum infection, schedule an appointment with Dr. Christopher Marchack and the team for treatment. If you have mild gum disease (gingivitis), our dental team will recommend optimal oral hygiene and standard cleanings to cure the infection—this is the only reversible stage of gum disease.

If you have advanced periodontal disease, we recommend the treatment options below:

  • Deep teeth cleaning: This two-barreled treatment involves scaling to remove built-in plaque and tartar from the deep pockets between the teeth and gums. After scaling, the dentist administers root planing to polish out the tooth roots to promote healing and healthy reattachment of tissues
  • Antibiotic therapy: Although periodontal cleaning is a stand-alone treatment, we often complement it with antibiotics to prevent reinfection
  • Flap surgery: Where the disease has advanced, surgical interventions are necessary. For flap surgery, the dentist lifts the gums away from the teeth to remove tartar deposits and infected tissue. A gum flap provides better access for cleaning and reduces the depth of pockets between the teeth and gums
  • Grafting: Where the healthy gum and bone tissue has been damaged, gum or bone grafting services will be necessary to replenish lost tissue
