While your local dentist can provide important oral health services, you can benefit from input provided by a periodontal expert if you are concerned about gum disease. Did you know that complications from periodontal disease can actually lead to tooth loss, or that the health of your gums can be an influence on your risk for heart disease? At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, you can learn more about what untreated gum disease can do to your general health, and your smile. Fortunately, we can also work with you on treatments that help you manage your periodontal health, and avoid worrying problems!
Should I Schedule A Second Opinion Appointment To Discuss Gum Disease?
If you have concerns about signs of gingivitis, or if your dentist is concerned that you have periodontal disease, a trip to see a periodontal specialist can certainly be important. During a consultation at our practice, you can learn more about the effects of an infection, and discuss modern treatments. We offer preventive services that can help a person with gingivitis avoid more serious problems with periodontal disease. We also offer different treatments that allow you to manage a serious infection, and avoid complications.
Recognizing The Difference Between Gingivitis And Periodontal Disease
An appointment to discuss treatment for gingivitis can help you avoid many frustrating oral health complications! Gingivitis is the initial infection that affects a person’s gums. If you have gingivitis, you may notice that your gums bleed easily when you brush and floss. You can also experience problems with bad breath, or tissues that appear red or swollen. We can provide a scaling and root planing procedure to address the harmful agents causing gingivitis, and reverse your condition. As a result, you can keep your gums in good health, and avoid problems linked to periodontal disease!
Planning Periodontal Care That Can Help You Preserve Your Smile, And Your Oral Health
If you are dealing with periodontal disease already, we can talk to you about modern procedures that help you fight its impact on your life! We can use LANAP treatment to cut away infected tissues, and allow you to grow healthy periodontal tissues in their place. We also offer ozone therapy to fight the harmful microbes beneath your gums.
If your issues with periodontal disease have already caused you to lose teeth, dental implants can give you important support for a dental prosthetic. We can meet with you and arrange your implant placement, and help you regain your full smile!
