Should I Be More Worried About Gum Disease?

Are you really doing enough to maintain your overall well-being? When you think about actions that benefit your general health, you should consider the role that your oral hygiene efforts have in keeping you in good condition. Maintaining your periodontal health is important for preserving your full smile, and it will help prevent the spread of bacteria to other parts of your body. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal office, we can provide the right services to help patients with different degrees of trouble with their gums. Those who need help managing a serious infection can learn about our different services, while those dealing with gingivitis can receive timely preventive care!

Gum Disease Can Have A Significant Impact On Your Smile And Overall Well-Being

You may not realize how serious a problem with your periodontal health can be. In time, an infection can cause deep periodontal pockets to form, becoming a gathering place for bacteria that can spread, damage tissues, and even move to different parts of your body by entering your bloodstream. You run a higher risk for tooth loss when advanced infections develop, and you can be vulnerable to problems with your general well-being. With the right information, we can determine how serious your condition might be, and what kind of support is appropriate for you.

A Diagnostic Review Can Give Us Useful Information About Your Periodontal Health

Through a diagnostic review, we can see how severe an infection has become, and what kind of periodontal services that you might require. We will look to see if you still have time to reverse a condition through a scaling and root planing, a preventive service that clears away bacteria from the roots of teeth, or if it is time to discuss more involved care.

Planning Services That Can Address Your Periodontal Disease

When caught in time, preventive care can have a positive impact on your periodontal health and control your risk for complications. However, when a person has more significant problems with their gums, it becomes necessary to provide more advanced services. Our options for care include work with periodontal lasers to carefully tend to pockets and remove bacteria as well as unhealthy tissues. We can also discuss the holistic services that can lead to beneficial recovery.
