Treating gum disease is critical to preserving overall health, and AV Dental Wellness Group makes it easy and affordable with advanced Periodontal Treatments.

Why Periodontal Care Matters

Periodontal care focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum disease, which affects not only your gums but also the supporting structures of your teeth.

Gum disease can creep up silently and painlessly until it reaches advanced stages, potentially leading to tooth loss and other health conditions. At AV Dental Wellness Group, we are committed to providing effective treatments and educating our patients on maintaining healthy gums, ensuring your smile stays vibrant and healthy for years to come.

Healthy Gums Equal Better Health

Healthy gums are not just key to a beautiful smile; they are essential for your overall health. Periodontal disease is linked to various health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. By prioritizing gum health, you’re aiming for a perfect smile and significantly boosting your overall well-being!

What is Gum Disease (Periodontal Disease)?

Gum disease (periodontal disease) is caused by bacteria that accumulate under the gum tissues and trigger an immune response. Inflammation, redness, and bleeding are common. This infection can cause gum tissues and bone to separate from the teeth, which can eventually lead to tooth loss.

The most common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Bad breath
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Bleeding or tender gums when you brush or floss
  • Pain when chewing food
  • Loose teeth
  • Gum recession
  • Spaces between teeth
  • “Pockets” under the gum tissue
  • Heavy tartar buildup

Although most of us think of periodontal disease as only affecting our smiles, it’s also closely linked to heart, lung, and reproductive health. Active oral infections can easily allow bacteria to spread into the bloodstream and lungs, posing a risk to your immune system and overall wellness.

Do I Need to See a Periodontist?

A dentist may refer a patient to a periodontist if the gum disease is very advanced and doesn’t respond to conventional therapy or if the patient has medical risk factors that pose a health risk. In most situations, mild to moderate gum disease is treated in your general or family dentist’s office, with isolated or advanced areas of severe infection being referred to a specialist.

Because periodontists have access to more advanced resources for treating periodontal disease, they can offer proven results and adjunctive therapies that may not be accessible in a traditional family dental office.
