Why Is Gum Disease Treatment Important?

Are you suffering from inflamed gums? Have you noticed loose teeth and shrinking gums? While gum disease may start quietly, it can progress quickly. At first, your gums may feel tender or bleed when you brush and floss. However, when plaque and calculus accumulate on your teeth, your gums eventually begin to pull away from your teeth. If left unchecked, this infection can cause more serious issues, such as tooth and bone loss, as well as the systemic health conditions it can lead to, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes complications and stroke!

Signs of Gum Disease

Target Gum Disease With Advanced Treatment

The great news is that gum disease is preventable—and curable in its early stages! Just be sure to brush, floss, and keep up with your regular professional teeth cleanings and checkups. However, if you require care for gum disease, we’re the team to trust! We provide exceptional care with genuine compassion and multiple advanced treatments for gum disease in south Florida.

At your consultation, our experienced dentists will assess your current oral health. Then, we’ll create a customized treatment plan that reflects your unique needs and smile goals. We can also administer sedation to reduce dental anxiety and guarantee comfort throughout your visit. With skilled treatment, maintenance and good oral health habits, you won’t have to worry about gum disease damaging your smile again. Plus, getting rid of bacteria and infection helps you maintain a healthier lifestyle!

Our Gum Disease Treatments

A non-surgical treatment, scaling and root planing is often the first line of defense against gum disease. Scaling removes the bacterial plaque from above and below the gumline. Root planing smooths the tooth surfaces to encourage healthy tissue reattachment and protection against future infection. Our dentist may recommend this treatment to help you become a candidate for full mouth dental implants. After your procedure, our dental team will create a custom oral hygiene plan to keep your smile beautiful and healthy.

Your oral hygiene plan can include periodontal maintenance to prevent gum disease from returning. This procedure involves deep cleaning your teeth and gum line to remove bacteria and plaque accumulation. These deep cleanings can replace your regularly scheduled hygiene appointments. Depending on your schedule and gum health, we can schedule your treatments every 3-6 months.
More advanced cases of periodontal disease may require a gingivectomy. During this procedure, Dr. Azar uses a state-of-the-art diode laser to penetrate deep into gum pockets to remove bacteria and damaged tissue. Unlike traditional methods, this advanced technique is minimally invasive, so you’ll enjoy a faster recovery time and better results.
