Gum disease is a serious threat to the health of your smile. It’s very serious because it’s a common problem that affects many people and has a lack of clearly identifiable symptoms. If you do have gum disease, we can treat it with periodontal therapy from Park West Dental Associates.
Periodontal therapy focuses on cleaning the gums and removing built up plaque and tartar from your teeth. This buildup is usually the cause of gum disease because it irritates your gums and leads to a bacterial infection. The sooner you come to us for treatment, the less chance you’ll require gum surgery to restore your smile.
While many of the symptoms are not exclusively limited to gum disease, if you’re experiencing sensitive gums that bleed when you brush them and a mysterious bad taste in your mouth that’s not related to food, please give us a call. These are good indicators that you may need periodontal therapy.
If you have gum disease there is no need to despair. We offer periodontal therapy to help restore the health of your teeth and gums. Give us a call today to see how we can help restore the health of your smile. We’ll create a treatment plan to treat your gum disease and help encourage better gum health going forward.
