Maxim Skormin treats gum disease to improve your oral health. Gum disease can’t be cured, but it can be managed with regular treatments and at-home care. There are various treatments available for gum disease based on its severity.
Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is a degenerative condition caused primarily by bacteria found in plaque. As a result of the bacteria, the gum tissues become inflamed and infected, and if left untreated, the gums can separate from the teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause bone loss, tooth loss, and gum recession.
You may have periodontal disease if your gums are swollen, red, or tender, or if they bleed easily. In addition to loose teeth, painful chewing, and persistent bad breath, receding gums can also damage your teeth, making them appear longer than normal. Our dental team and dentist will be able to detect periodontal disease following your exam at the practice.
Depending on your particular dental needs, you will receive gum disease treatment. If the condition is severe, our dentist may suggest additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), or gum surgery. Our goal is to help you halt the progression of the disease by restoring your oral health. Call or visit our office soon for more information on periodontal treatment. You can count on us to take good care of your teeth!
