Gum Disease – Periodontal Treatment
Maintaining oral health means not only maintaining the condition of your teeth, but the condition of your gums as well. There are many risks that come along with gum disease (periodontal disease) and in the most severe cases, patients can even lose their teeth. Our Encino dentist focuses on preventative dentistry in order to promote gum health, however, we understand that gum issues may still arise for various reasons. Periodontal treatment is necessary to treat gum disease in order to prevent any problems in the future.
Gum disease is a condition that develops over time. It is a condition where the gums begin to separate from the teeth and small pockets begin to form. These pockets become full of bacteria and calculus, which begins to attack your teeth. If left untreated, the teeth will begin to become loose and eventually fall out.
Excellent dental hygiene and dental care along with the gum disease treatment offered in our office can help improve the condition of your gums drastically. Please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment if you are suffering from any of the following symptoms:
- Red, swollen gums
- Bleeding gums
- Chronic Halitosis (bad breath)
- Receding gums
- Loose or over sensitive teeth
Gum disease is a progressive condition. The earlier a patient comes into our Encino dental office for treatment, the better the results will be. Call us today by dialing (818) 783-0408 !
