Gum Disease Treatment in Apollo Beach, Florida

Gum health is essential for protecting your smile and overall wellness. The gum tissue surrounding your teeth can become infected and damaged from disease. This can affect your teeth and put you at risk for other health problems. Gum disease is prevalent among adults over thirty and can lead to tooth loss and increase your chance of conditions like stroke and type 2 diabetes.

Gum Disease Treatment

At Monaco Dentistry, we can help you prevent or treat gum disease with regular general dentistry treatments at our office.

Gum disease is essentially infected gum tissue. Treatment for gum disease includes stopping the infection and helping the gum tissue heal. Deep cleanings of the teeth to remove plaque, tartar and bacteria are the basis of most treatments for early stages of gum disease. These professional cleanings, along with medication and home oral care, can help reverse gum disease and restore your oral health.

Symptoms and Causes of Periodontal Disease

The main cause of gum disease is a bacterial infection of the tissue. The bacteria that feed on food particles left on the teeth are the culprits of gum disease. The bacteria live in the plaque and tartar on your teeth, which is why daily brushing and flossing are important in preventing gum disease. However, even with good oral hygiene, there are places these bacteria can hide. Lifestyle choices like drinking alcohol, tobacco or drug use can increase your risk for gum disease, as can certain health conditions.

Symptoms of periodontal or gum disease include gum tenderness, bleeding or recession. You may also have chronic bad breath from the bacteria and infection. Our hygienists at Monaco Dentistry look for the early signs of gum disease during every routine cleaning.

If there are indications of the beginning of gum disease, we will recommend treatment to help stop the disease and restore the health of your gums. Contact us today to schedule your next checkup and cleaning and to learn more about promoting gum and oral health.
