Periodontics: Treat & Prevent Gum Disease
Call (818) 532-5565 to Book Your Appointment in Montrose, CA
Periodontists specialize in evaluating your gums for signs of disease and
infection. When your gums get infected or inflamed, they not only can
cause you discomfort, but they also can pull away from your teeth, leading
to weaknesses and leaving you susceptible to tooth decay and sometimes
even tooth loss. Our advanced digital X-ray technology at AG Dental Studio
can help give us a full picture of your gum health and any problem areas
or gaps between your gums and your teeth. If we notice these gaps, we
will likely recommend a deep cleaning or other treatment option to encourage
the gums to re-adhere to your teeth.
We are dedicated to gentle, personalized dental care. Schedule your next visit
Proactive Gum & Dental Care
Our Montrose CA dentist works aggressively to stop gum disease in its tracks.
A variety of treatment options are available to individuals suffering
from gum disease, and we make sure that we carefully explain to you your
Patient education is our priority, and we want to ensure you can take care of your gums at home as well.
Signs that you may be suffering from periodontal disease include:
- Redness or swelling along gum lines
- Receding gum lines
- Excessive bleeding when you floss or brush
- Over-sensitive teeth
Some common treatment options to combat gum disease include: scaling (removal
of buildup on teeth), planing (smoothing of surface of teeth), antibiotics
and antiseptics, and several surgical procedures targeting the gums and
gum line. We are always proactive in our approach, and our dental professional
use only the most advanced technology for your safety and comfort.
What to Expect During Your First Visit
If we notice signs of periodontal disease, we are likely to combine our
X-ray process with a gum probe. Probing is intended to measure the pockets
between your gum and your teeth, so that we have a full picture of the
extent of your gum separation. During this part of the examination we
are also able to identify possible warning signs of oral cancer, infection,
and how deep your gum line may have receded.
