Periodontal Treatment Wickham

gum desease treatment WickhamYour dental health isn’t just about your teeth. Your gums need to be healthy for you to have a beautiful smile. At 7 Pearls Dental, we can address the needs of your entire mouth to make sure that your teeth and gums stay in great shape. If you have a problem with the soft tissues of your mouth, we can identify them and provide the treatment you need to restore your good oral health.

The Causes of Gum Disease

Brushing, flossing and having your regular checkups with us will help to prevent you from ever getting gum disease. If you aren’t stringent about these routines, however, plaque can build up on the teeth. When plaque sits on the teeth, it will calcify and turn into tartar. Tartar buildup can’t be removed with brushing and flossing. It will lead to your gums becoming irritated, which is known as periodontal disease or gum disease.

At your periodic checkups with us, we evaluate your gums as well as your teeth to make sure that you have no signs of periodontal disease.

The Symptoms of Gum Disease

Are you concerned that you may be showing signs of having periodontal disease? It’s nothing to ignore or put off dealing with. Gum disease has been linked with a higher risk of diabetes, stroke and fertility problems.

The symptoms that you may have periodontal disease include

  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Bleeding gums
  • Darkened gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Receding gums
  • Sensitive gums

Non-Surgical Soft Tissue Therapy

Many of our patients want to avoid the need for surgery. If so, soft tissue therapy can be a fantastic way to treat your gum disease. We can provide this service in-clinic. It involves using ultrasonics, antibiotics and irrigation. With regular visits to us, we can make a dramatic improvement in your periodontal health.
