Got some heavy tartar buildup?
Gum disease often creeps up unexpectedly, jeopardizing otherwise healthy, beautiful teeth. Left untreated, this periodontal infection will gradually lead to bone and tooth loss. Some of the warning signs include:
Your smile isn’t the only thing that’s in danger when it comes to aggressive gum disease. Periodontal infections can also raise your risk and severity of numerous medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and pneumonia (among others.) Treating your oral infection benefits your overall wellness just as much as your smile.
Any invasive or surgical procedure has risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. Individual results can vary.
Periodontal therapy usually involves a series of deep cleanings to remove the bacteria that are causing your gum and bone infection. Special instruments and numbing medication are used to comfortably remove the bacteria deep below your gum “pockets” around the roots of teeth.
Continuous professional cleanings and a dedicated oral hygiene routine can help you prevent relapse or progression of bone loss. The team at Lillybrook Dental will work with you to develop a personalized home care regimen that fits your unique oral health needs. Call today!
