What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal diseases affect the soft tissue structures in your mouths. Along with the underlying bone, gum tissue firmly holds our teeth in place. Although gums are strong when healthy, they are vulnerable to damaging plaque and tartar. These structures need prompt care when compromised.
Gingivitis is a buildup of plaque beneath the gum line. If caught in time, the gums will reattach to the surface of the teeth. But if gingivitis goes unaddressed, the bacteria in the plaque will eventually cause an infection.
Periodontitis, otherwise known as advanced gum disease, is a serious infection localized to the gums. If left untreated, infections reduce the size and strength of the gum tissue, compromising teeth. The bacteria will eventually spread into the bloodstream and threaten your overall health.
Root Planing and Scaling
At AA Family Dental, our skilled periodontist can effectively treat your gingivitis. First, we remove the plaque and tartar beneath the gum line with root scaling, leaving your gum pockets clean.
Next, we conduct root planing to create a smooth plane on the surface of the roots. This encourages the gums to reattach. When administered timely, these essential services will stop the progression of gum disease.
Cosmetic Crown Lengthening
Sometimes a gum line is naturally irregular. This makes the teeth appear uneven in size, despite their uniformity beneath the gums.
The gum contouring procedure will create a more uniform appearance to your smile.
If periodontal disease has compromised your gums, we can rebuild them with a tissue grafting procedure. This procedure gives your smile a healthier appearance. Full gums also ensure your teeth roots stay protected.
