Gum Disease Treatment at Deluxe Dental: Protecting Your Oral Health

Welcome to Deluxe Dental, where we specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease. Our commitment to oral health extends beyond your teeth to the very foundation they rest on – your gums. We understand the importance of healthy gums for overall dental wellness and are dedicated to providing the best care for your gums.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common but preventable infection of the gums and bone that support your teeth. It’s typically caused by poor oral hygiene, leading to plaque buildup. If left untreated, gum disease can result in tooth loss and has been linked to other health issues.

Stages of Gum Disease:

  • Gingivitis: The early stage, where gums may become red, swollen, and bleed easily.
  • Periodontitis: Advanced stage, where the gums and bone that support the teeth can be seriously damaged.

Why Treat Gum Disease at Deluxe Dental?

Treating gum disease at Deluxe Dental is crucial for several reasons:

  • Preventing Tooth Loss: Early treatment can prevent the progression to more serious stages, which can lead to tooth loss.
  • Improving Overall Health: Research links periodontal disease to other health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
  • Reducing Discomfort: Treatment alleviates symptoms like swollen, bleeding gums, and bad breath.
  • Customized Treatment Plans: We offer personalized care to effectively treat gum disease at its root, tailored to the severity and your specific needs.

Aftercare: Maintaining Healthy Gums Post-Treatment

Proper aftercare is essential for maintaining the health of your gums after treatment:

  • Regular Oral Hygiene: Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash to keep plaque at bay.
  • Routine Dental Visits: Regular check-ups and cleanings at Deluxe Dental are crucial for preventing the recurrence of gum disease.
  • Healthy Lifestyle Choices: Avoid smoking, and maintain a balanced diet to support overall oral health.
  • Follow-Up Treatments: Adhere to any recommended follow-up treatments or maintenance therapies.
