Providing Relief from Periodontal Disease

Jul 07, 2022
Sunflower

In the United States, adults have a moderate to severe case of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can range from a minor gum tissue irritation to periodontitis, a serious dental condition that can cause soft tissue and bone loss as well as tooth loss.  Both new and current patients who have periodontal (gum) disease are receiving periodontal treatments from our skilled dentist.

Poor oral hygiene practices are one of the main causes of gum disease. The key to preserving excellent oral health is regular expert checkups, cleanings, and daily brushing and flossing. If these steps are not taken, plaque may form on the teeth and along the gum line. If this plaque is not completely removed, it could eventually harden and turn into tartar. Once that happens, only a dentist can get tartar off of teeth.

Tartar may continue to accumulate if gum disease is left untreated for an extended period of time. When this happens, the gum disease could get worse. Normal activities like brushing or eating can cause normal behaviors like gums to bleed, redden, and swell. Professional periodontal care is now required to stop the disease from spreading further.

Periodontitis can develop from periodontal disease if it is not treated quickly. The most severe type of periodontal disease is periodontitis. Periodontitis causes little "pockets" to form along the gum line as the gums start to pull away from the teeth. Without assistance from a professional, it is quite difficult to clean these places, which can quickly deteriorate dental health overall. Periodontitis may cause the destruction of soft tissues, bone, and gums if timely and thorough treatment is not received. Periodontal disease is one of the main reasons why adults lose their teeth.

Poor dental hygiene practices, diabetes, smoking, and female hormone fluctuations are some of the most frequent causes of periodontal disease. It may be more difficult to properly clean teeth if the gum tissue develops aberrant tissues as a result of some drugs. Periodontal disease is more likely to occur in those who are undergoing AIDS medication.

Every stage of periodontal disease can be identified and treated by our Milford doctor, who has the education and experience to do so. Contact our office to arrange a consultation if you are experiencing periodontal disease symptoms. Chronic poor breath, sensitive teeth, red or swollen gums, sensitive or bleeding gums, and discomfort or difficulty eating are a few indications. Excellent periodontal care is provided by our Milford dentist, who welcomes new patient consultations. Contact our Milford office to learn more or to make an appointment.
