Gum Disease Treatment and Periodontal Care
For good oral health, you need to consider more than just your teeth; your gums and bones support your teeth and play an important role to your overall oral health. Periodontal care focuses on maintaining the health of your gums and bones in your mouth. The goal is to prevent or eradicate infections in the gums, protect the roots of the teeth, and control the inflammation of the gums. The periodontal team at Aarohi Dental is well equipped to provide world class gum disease treatments and other periodontal care to ensure that your gums and bones are healthy.
Recognizing and Treating Gum Disease
Many people are living with gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, and are not aware of it. The first signs of gum disease are red, swollen, and bleeding gums. As the infection progresses and gets deeper into your gums, you may also experience chronic bad breath, receding gums, tooth sensitivity, increasing pain while chewing, and loose teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to the loss of bone and eventually tooth loss. Gum disease can also affect your overall health, contributing to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory issues, and other serious illnesses.
