Periodontal Care Escondido

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a dangerous infection that affects the structures and bones supporting your teeth.

It's called gingivitis in the early stages and periodontitis in the later stages.

Gums that are infected with gingivitis are red and swollen, and they may bleed from time to time.

People suffering from periodontitis usually have chewing difficulties that loosen the teeth and pull the gums away from the tooth.

This will result in tooth loss in the long run.

Gum disease can be avoided with daily brushing, flossing, and frequent dental check-ups.

Make an appointment today for a dental examination at Robert J. Malone DDS to determine the health of your gums and teeth.

Why is Periodontal Maintenance and Care Necessary?

Gum disease can affect anyone and is primarily caused by bacterial plaque, a white film that collects on your teeth.

Plaque contains bacteria that release chemicals that harm your gums and teeth.

If plaque is left on the surfaces of the teeth, it hardens into tartar, a harsh and porous deposit.

You can minimize plaque and tartar build-up with regular brushing and flossing daily.

It is important to note that despite your best efforts, plaque build-up is difficult to avoid, necessitating expert dental cleaning.

Deep cleaning will help remove all plaque and tartar, lowering the risk of cavities.

Teeth cleaning also helps remove bacteria from under the gum line, guarding against the development of gum disease.

Untreated gum illnesses can harm the bone tissues surrounding the dental roots, resulting in poor breath, tooth loss, and unhealthy gum tissue.

Preventing Gum Disease

Periodontal disease can be avoided if you have a healthy oral hygiene routine and are diligent in keeping your teeth and gums clean.

This implies brushing your teeth twice a day, in the morning and before bed.

Daily flossing is also necessary, particularly before brushing.

Flossing is important because it eliminates any retained food particles that may be hiding between your teeth.

In addition, schedule routine check-ups and dental cleanings with us here at Robert J. Malone DDS at least twice a year.

Those who suffer from advanced stages of gum disease or other conditions should make appointments with us more frequently.

Furthermore, it is recommended that you cease the consumption of tobacco products since it can harm your gums and lead to gum disease.

Gum Disease Treatment Escondido

Gum disease can be treated, no matter how serious it is, but it takes an extended period.

Early stages of gum disease, gingivitis, can be reversed.

The later stages of gum disease, periodontitis, cannot be reversed but can be treated and maintained.

The most popular procedures to treat gum disease include root planing and scaling, which remove tartar and rough places on your tooth roots, where bacteria hide.

We may also prescribe antibiotics to aid in treating your gum infections thoroughly.

Our dentist may perform flap surgery if you have serious inflammation in your gums.

The operation removes any deposits from below the gums.

Bone grafting is often used to help patients with bone loss repair their weakened jawbones.

Follow-up appointments are vital so that we can be aware of your progress.

If your progress is slow, the dentist may suggest alternative treatments.
