About Periodontal Gum Disease
Were you aware that over 64,000,000 American adults suffer from periodontal gum disease? Once gingivitis (the first stage of periodontal disease) has advanced, the condition can actually no longer be cured, simply managed. When a patient neglects to properly take care of their smile and oral health, bacteria, plaque and acid begin to build up in the mouth, wreaking havoc on the gums and other supporting structures of the mouth. As the disease progresses, more and more damage is caused, resulting in a variety of symptoms, which include:
- Bad Breath
- Loose Teeth
- Tooth Loss
- Red Gums
- Receding Gums
- Swollen Gums
- Bleeding Gums
- Infected Gums
- Gum Pockets
Many patients, however, report not noticing any symptoms until the condition had progressed past gingivitis. We recommends routine dental care to prevent complications such as gingivitis from ever starting.
Periodontal Disease Treatment in Omaha, NE
During your gum disease treatment, the ultimate goal is to remove any of the plaque, tartar, bacteria and infection present. Once the mouth has been thoroughly cleaned, the gums can usually re-attach properly and begin to heal. In certain situations, more invasive treatment may be necessary such as periodontal surgery to manage more advanced cases of periodontal gum disease.
