Preventive Services

Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment

Gum disease, also known as Gingivitis or Periodontal disease, is very common in adults and is the leading cause of tooth loss. Gum disease is caused when plaque and tarter build up along the gum line, irritating the gums. Common systems of gum disease are:

  • bleeding gums when brushing
  • bright red or red purple color to gums
  • mouth sores
  • swollen gums
  • bad breath

With routine cleanings and a quality at-home oral hygiene routine it is possible to prevent gum disease. The effects of gum disease are also quite easy to reverse when caught early and proper treatment is received.

Our hygienists provide gentle, thorough cleanings that remove the plaque build-up that normal brushing misses. They also offer education and instruction on how to get the maximum benefit from brushing and flossing.

Recent studies have shown an association between gum disease and increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, low birth weight and diabetes. Because gum disease can have an adverse effect to your overall health we strongly suggest getting professional cleanings at least every six months.
