Get in touch straight away to go over your options and find out what we can do for you.

What Is Gum Disease?

Periodontitis, or gum disease, occurs when plaque is allowed to build up on the surface of your teeth. This leads to bacteria getting into the gum pockets surrounding your teeth and attacking the tissues that support your teeth and hold them in place.

Several factors can contribute to the development of gum disease. These include bad oral hygiene, genetics, hormonal changes, and stress. To develop an effective treatment plan to restore your oral health, our dentist will speak with you and identify what triggered your periodontitis. We always strive to provide the best possible care, and by knowing what caused your gum disease to develop will help us to treat the infection and manage your ongoing care.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

During your consultation with our dentist at Smile For Life, we will assert the best possible treatment plan to bring the gum disease under control and restore your mouth back to health. There are a number of treatment options available depending on the severity and extent of the disease. This ranges from deep cleaning to tissue regeneration.

Our Full Range of Periodontal Services Includes:

  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Gum Graft Surgery
  • Dental Crown Lengthening
  • Laser Treatment
  • And more

What Are the Stages of Gum Disease?

Gingivitis: The first periodontal disease stage is gingivitis. This occurs when a buildup of plaque at the gumline releases toxins that cause inflammation. Gingivitis is often reversed after a professional cleaning removes the plaque.

Periodontitis: If gingivitis is not treated, you will develop periodontitis. If at this stage, the fibers and bone that support and hold your teeth in place will be badly damaged. Treatment from our skilled dentists can prevent further damage.

Advanced periodontitis: At this stage of gum disease, the fibers and bone supporting your teeth will be destroyed and your teeth are likely to become loose and shift. At this stage, your teeth may need to be removed.

How Much Do Periodontal Services Cost?

At Smile For Life, we pride ourselves on providing excellent quality dental care to everyday American families. We strive to make our dental care affordable for all who need it, which is why we have financing options available to assist you in getting periodontal care when you need it.
