Gum Disease Treatments
Gum disease is a dental condition that increases your risk of heart disease and diabetes. If you suspect that you have this condition, you should seek the help of the gum disease expert Dr. Anthony Mobasser.
This disease results from bacterial accumulation in your gums, tissues, and bones. If left untreated, it can cause a break in the system that supports your tooth structure and lead to further plaque causing systemic problems.
When Dr. Mobasser treats his patients, he ensures that his patients have healthy gums. This way, any dental treatment will have long-lasting results because the foundation is strong and healthy.
Diagnosing a Gum Disease
Most of the time, this condition is the product of inadequate oral hygiene maintenance. It can easily advance if you don’t keep your periodontal maintenance appointment.
Another major contributor is too much acid in your mouth. That is, if you love drinking soda, caffeinated drinks, and fruit juices. Genetics can also play a role.
To diagnose this condition, Dr. Mobasser will suggest a dental x-ray, and it’s to help in identifying the loss of bone. He’ll also conduct a periodontal examination and pocket analysis to know the depth of the pockets.
Some patients suffer from chronic gum disease. There’s no sign of pain at this stage, and the symptoms will only reveal when it’s already in its advanced stage.
But when you visit Dr. Mobasser’s dental office regularly, he can easily spot signs of gum disease, even if you don’t feel any pain.
Non-surgical gum treatment is ideal for early periodontal disease. It involves root planing, prophylaxis, and several others.
Scaling and gum surgery may be advised if you have moderate gum disease. In this stage, you can have either a surgical or a non-surgical option, which could also be a combination of both treatments.
For advanced gum disease, the treatment will include surgical and non-surgical procedures, including gum flap surgery, bone grafting, surgical gum intervention, and gum curettage, among others.
Dr. Mobasser will prescribe certain products and procedures depending on your gum disease. All of them aim to restore your healthy gums.
Most treatments will involve routine cleaning and removal of hard calcium deposits. Cleaning your teeth and mouth is vital to ensure no plaque and tartar deposits at your gum line.
