Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease can either be categorized as gingivitis or periodontitis depending on the severity — but both need to be addressed as soon as possible by our Revere dentist. According to a study performed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 64.7 million American adults had some form of gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, pneumonia and even cancer.
Causes of Gum Disease
Gum disease is caused by a number of different factors, but the main causes include poor diet, poor oral hygiene habits, and most of all neglecting to see a dentist for routine cleanings. Our dental office in Revere can’t stress enough the importance of scheduling routine appointments because the best defense against gum disease is early detection. Notice red, swollen or bleeding gums? This is how gum disease usually presents itself in the early stages. Luckily, there is non-invasive treatment for gum disease as long as you catch the warning signs early enough.
Gum Disease Treatment in Revere MA
All Pro Dental believes in conservative, non-invasive dentistry as the first form of gum disease treatment. During your appointment, our dentist in Revere will assess whether or not you will benefit from nonsurgical treatment called scaling and root planing. This gum disease treatment involves removing the plaque and tartar off of your teeth and around your gumline while smoothing the surface of your teeth to prevent future buildup. Our dental hygienist will also inform you if you need additional treatment such as pocket reduction or gum grafts.
If you suspect you have signs of gum disease, or if you have not scheduled an appointment with our dental office in Revere, then contact us online today to book a day and time so we can get you treated as soon as possible. Our goal is to provide knowledge and expert advise on how our patients can prevent gum disease as well as provide thorough and effective treatments.
