Gum disease occurs when plaque gathers below the gum line, infecting and inflaming the soft tissues and bone structure supporting the teeth. While it’s essential to brush, floss, limit your intake of sugar, it’s also important to visit our office for periodic teeth cleanings, to protect your teeth and gums against the effects of plaque. To diagnose gum disease, our dentist will provide a thorough examination of the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, assisted by the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. The earliest stage of gum disease is gingivitis, which may not present you with any pain or symptoms at first. Sandwich gum treatment for gingivitis may involve scaling and root planing, which is essentially a deep periodontal cleaning. Scaling removes plaque that has accumulated along and below the gum line, and root planing involves smoothing the root surfaces of teeth to prevent further plaque buildup. You can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands at our office, our professional team delivers the most precise and gentle care, keeping you informed and at ease throughout treatment. We may also recommend more frequent teeth cleanings, techniques for improving your oral hygiene routine and medication to treat gingivitis. Treating gingivitis from its outset helps prevent it from progressing to more advanced stages of periodontal disease.
With our leading-edge approaches to Sandwich gum treatment, we can reverse gingivitis, keeping your teeth and gums healthy and strong. To prevent gum disease, be sure to keep up with your periodic checkups at the office of Dr. Richard Sadowski. To learn more about periodontal disease or to schedule an appointment, call today.
