Are Your Receding, Bleeding, or Sore Gums Worrying You?
Here at Celebrity Smiles we understand the importance of a beautiful smile and a healthy one. That’s why, every time you arrive at his office for your 3, 4, or 6 month exam and cleaning, he performs a 15-point full examination of your mouth. As part of this comprehensive examination, we will check for bleeding gums, a sure sign of periodontal disease. If bleeding gums are detected during his exam then there is inflammation present. The inflammation or periodontal disease in the gums can affect the entire body.
It is important that a dentist diagnose and treat bleeding gums immediately, and teach you how to manage gum disease, to avoid future problems.
Bleeding gums are typically the first sign of periodontal disease, and can be caused by a nutritional issue, an underlying medical problem, or extreme amounts of bacteria in the mouth. Bacterial build-up is a sign that the patient isn’t taking good care of his or her teeth. Once gum disease has taken hold, it is even more important for that individual to visit the dentist on a regular basis for frequent, thorough, routine gentle ultrasonic cleanings with NO HARSH SCRAPING.
A Non-Surgical Alternative
Periodontal treatment is completed at our office with a state-of-the-art, non-surgical technique using a laser. The laser treats diseased tissue without cutting or bleeding and disinfects the area at the same time! Laser treatment cannot be used in every case so come into our office for an examination and consultation to see if you are a candidate for this conservative treatment. Current X-rays are needed.
The Celebrity Smiles doctors will also recommend effective mouth rinses, toothpastes, and nutritional supplements that can help keep periodontal disease at bay. Showing patients a simple and more effective at home system allows patients to fight periodontal disease outside of the dentist’s office, every day. Together with the laser in-office treatment, his patients will enjoy a lifetime of happy, healthy teeth and gums!
