Gum Disease Oxnard CA

Periodontal TherapyAn Overview

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States and is associated with a wide range of other oral health and systemic health concerns. Gum disease is a progressive disease that affects millions of patients and too often goes undiagnosed due to a lack of preventative dental health care. Dr. Gerogia Haddad and our dental care team provide thorough gum disease screenings at every dental check up. Catching gum disease early is the best for effective treatment and to avoid the development of associated dental health risks.

The health of your gums is essential for a stable bite and beautiful smile. Gums support the root structure of the teeth and help to keep your teeth in alignment. When gum disease spreads the health and stability of the gums becomes compromised. Gums may get swollen, bleed, begin to recede reducing the gums ability to hold teeth in place. As gum disease progresses teeth may become loose and often begin to fall out.

Periodontal Therapy What to Expect

Periodontal Therapy Treatment Options

  • Scaling & Root Planing Scaling and root planing is an intensive tooth and gum cleaning that removes the plaque and tartar build up that causes gum disease. The procedure can reach into the deep pockets where bacteria breeds.
  • Laser Dentistry Laser Dentistry is a state of the art dental technique that can remove diseased tissue while stimulating new tissue growth. Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive procedure that offers patients fewer downtimes and bleeding and swelling than traditional gum surgery. Laser dentistry may also be able to restore the gum line to proper balance if the gums have receded due to gum disease.
