Benefits of Gum Disease Treatment

Treating Gum Disease Before It Gets Too Severe

While gum disease isn’t the most common dental health condition, it is widespread, and it is the number one cause of adult tooth loss. Unfortunately, not everyone recognizes the dangers when they first notice the signs of gum disease. By the time they seek Gum Disease Treatment, it’s often the case that the condition has already caused significant damage to their periodontal tissues (gums). The best way to protect your smile is to prevent gum disease with excellent hygiene and regular preventive dental care. If prevention fails, then the next best way to protect your smile is to detect it and seek timely Gum Disease Treatment to mitigate its impact as early as possible.

What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is a progressive condition that develops in the soft periodontal tissues, or gums, that surround your jawbone and teeth roots. When oral bacteria gather along your gum line, some of them can migrate underneath the tissues and form plaque and tartar on your teeth roots. This results in an infection and irritation in your gums that results in redness, inflammation, bleeding, and worse. As it progresses further and becomes more severe, gum disease causes significant damage to your gums, and eventually the jawbone structure underneath will erode, as well. In severe cases, this erosion leaves one or more of your teeth without enough support, causing them to fall out or require extraction by the time you seek treatment.

The Risks of Ignoring It

Because gum disease is progressive, it will continue to get worse the longer you ignore it. After losing one tooth, the disease will continue to lead to more lost teeth, eventually leaving your dental ridges empty. This makes timely Gum Disease Treatment crucial for halting its progression. Because of the rampant inflammation that’s associated with gum disease, its severe stages can also become risk factors in other chronic, inflammatory conditions, including cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, type 2 diabetes, dementia, and much more. Seeking Gum Disease Treatment can not only save your teeth but also mitigate risks to your overall health.

Called Dimples and wish I called them first. Their receptionist was SO kind and SO helpful. Even offered to call to have my records sent to them in hopes to save me some money from doing x rays again. She was nothing but sweet! Got me scheduled within 2 days. Went above and beyond and was kind when I arrived.

Dr. Roos and his staff are incredibly professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Their pricing is also extremely reasonable, even for those without insurance. We had an excellent experience with a dental emergency exam; they also had availability to fit us in for a routine exam and cleaning after the emergency exam.
