Do You Need A Gum Disease Consultation?

When you experience possible changes to your gums, which can mean sensitivity, redness, or even bleeding, then you should consider an appointment with our team. With a periodontal disease consultation, our team can see if you need treatment to stop discomfort and avoid tooth loss! Our Savannah, GA periodontal practice is ready to help you enjoy strong and healthy gums again.

The Potential Warning Signs of Periodontal Disease

How do you know if your gums are at risk? Watch for any changes to them. If they suddenly appear redder than normal, or become sore, then you should let us know. If the tissues swell or recede, this is a cause for concern, as is persistent cleaning when you brush and floss. Don’t ignore these warning signs, as the disease could grow in severity and eventually reach the periodontitis stage, one linked to the onset of tooth loss. We can help you repair your smile and enjoy good esthetics too!

What Happens Next?

When you experience these warning signs, or if your dentist refers you to our team, we will conduct a detailed examination with advanced digital technology, looking for signs of disease or indicators of danger to the bone and root structures due to the disease. We will talk to you about risk factors and your oral hygiene routine as well. Our team will assess the presence and severity of periodontal disease, so we can create a treatment plan tailored to your smile, helping you enjoy a full smile and avoiding the painful complications of the disease.

Possible Treatments Options

How do we treat and manage serious concerns like gum disease? In the early stages, we could use a deep cleaning, also known as a scaling and root planing, to bringing the disease into a manageable state, using preventive care to keep it in check moving forward. For severe stages and for those with gum recession, we could use advanced treatments using dental lasers to trim away diseased tissues and reshape the gum line. Gum grafts could cover the exposed portions of the teeth, so the disease is manageable and you avoid issues like tooth decay and infection.

Whether you have minor or advanced periodontal disease, we can discuss treatment ranging from minor deep cleanings to advanced periodontal surgery to help restore the health and beauty of your smile again. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, then please reach out to our team today.
