Periodontal Therapy St. Albert
Periodontal gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common dental condition that affects the tissues that surround and support your teeth, including the gums, ligaments, and bone. Symptoms include receding gums, longer appearing teeth, shifting or loose teeth.
High Prevalence of Periodontal Disease in North America
According to a recent study, more than 75% of North Americans over 35 years of age have some form of periodontal disease. However, many individuals may not be aware of their infection as only 8 out of 10 people surveyed believed they did not have periodontal disease, despite 7 out of 10 exhibiting one or more symptoms.
Symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bad breath
- Gum recession
- Gums that are swollen or bleed easily
- Sensitivity of teeth and gums.
Early Detection and Treatment of Gum Disease
Early detection and treatment are crucial for maintaining the health of your natural teeth. To address gum disease, your dentist may recommend a professional deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) to remove bacteria and debris that irritate the gum tissue.
Advanced Procedures for Gum Disease Treatment
In advanced cases, additional procedures such as bone grafting or locally placed antibiotics may be necessary. To ensure optimal oral health, it is important to schedule regular check-ups and periodontal disease screenings with a dentist, such as Family Dental in St. Albert.
