Periodontal Disease Dublin, CA

Gum Disease Dublin, CA

Most adults are likely to be diagnosed with gum disease during their lifetime. It’s important to prevent and treat this dental condition as early as possible as it can result in tooth and bone loss and affect your appearance.

The main contributory factor behind gum disease is the build-up of plaque and tartar under your gum tissue, which becomes irritated and swollen. Risk factors such as diabetes, pregnancy, and smoking—since they constrict blood flow to your gums—may also cause swelling of gums.

So, if you reside in Dublin or nearby areas, you can get yourself examined for signs of gum disease or its treatment by calling Sharma Dental Center at (925) 833-6200 and schedule your appointment.

How do I prevent gum disease?

Keeping your teeth clean is the most effective way to prevent gum disease: brushing teeth in a circular way two to three times a day. Floss daily and also use an antiseptic mouthwash to kill persistent bacteria. Apart from this routine, visit your dentist for regular teeth cleaning. We also recommend that you control blood sugar, stop smoking and drink lots of water to improve or maintain gum health.

Routine signs of gum disease

  • Swollen or red gums
  • Flossing, brushing or eating hard food that triggers gum bleeding
  • Receding gums that make teeth appear longer
  • Wobbly teeth

Treating gum disease

The treatment depends on how far the disease has progressed. In the initial stages simple teeth cleaning is enough to restore the health of your gums, but if the disease has progressed further your dentist will discuss with you the following treatment methods:

Periodontal infection therapy: We use chemicals to slow growth of the disease, and recommend an antiseptic mouth rinse to kill infection-causing bacteria.

Deep cleaning: In about four appointments, we deep clean your mouth by pulling away from your gums from the teeth to get rid of the tartar and plaque under the gum tissue. Some dentists utilize lasers to quicken the cleaning process, which reduces dental visits.

Gum grafts: Gum grafts are required if there is excessive gum recession, and is carried out by suturing the tissue from your upper mouth to your gums or by utilizing donor tissue to return the gums to their natural position.

Antibiotics: Along with gum therapy we recommend antibiotics to eliminate any lingering infection.

Bone grafting is unavoidable if you have severe gum disease

Advanced gum disease leads to severe gum recession, affects the stability of teeth, the appearance of your face, and the likelihood of bacteria attacking your teeth and their roots— causing your jawbone to lose its bone density. And if there is bone loss, you will need a bone grafting procedure in which we will put a synthetic bone in the area of the bone loss to trigger bone growth. A definitive dental X-ray will determine the need for this procedure.
