Gum disease is serious infection caused by hundreds of oral bacteria. The effects of this progressive condition involve breakdown of bone and other structures holding your teeth in place. Without prompt, effective treatment, your risk of health complications like tooth loss and a number of systemic illnesses may threaten your quality of life and general well-being.
Dr. Kamel and our experienced team provide a number of gentle, effective solutions for treating your gum disease and helping you regain a healthy, vibrant smile. We understand that dental fear or anxiety may be keeping you away from the dental office and the care you need, and offer a number of relaxing sedation solutions that may be combined with periodontal procedures for your ultimate comfort. Our gum disease treatments include:
Once you have undergone treatment for gum disease, it is very important that you keep periodontal maintenance visits to maintain the healthy state of your gum tissues. Periodontal maintenance appointments typically occur every three to four months, and include thorough removal of above and below the gum plaque and tartar deposits, evaluation of periodontal pocket depths and overall maintenance of gum health, among other services. After you have been diagnosed with and treated for gum disease, six-month prophylaxis cleanings simply are not enough to keep gum disease at bay.
At Woodbury Dental Arts, we believe in treating the cause of the problem, not merely the signs and symptoms. Let us help you fight gum disease and enjoy a healthy mouth and healthy body for years to come.
