Dr. Leo Man and Dr. Roxanne Ramirez provide gum disease treatment to help fight the harmful bacteria in your mouth and improve your oral health. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition that can eventually lead to tooth loss, bone loss and gum recession if left untreated. It has also been linked to a number of serious medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease, osteoporosis and pregnancy complications. This makes visiting the dentist regularly for dental cleanings and exams incredibly important, as these routine checkups make it possible for gum disease to be diagnosed and treated in the earliest stages of development before it can cause significant damage to your oral health.
While we do everything we can to help you avoid developing gum disease, if you are diagnosed with this condition, our dentists will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that meets your needs. We will thoroughly evaluate the progression of the disease to determine which type of treatment will be most effective for you, and we will review all treatment options with you so that you can make fully informed decisions about your dental care. Treatments for gum disease range from professional deep cleanings to surgical gum procedures.
Common signs of periodontal disease include swelling and tenderness of the gums, gums that bleed easily, unusually red gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, loose teeth, and changes in your bite or the fit of oral appliances. If you notice any of these signs, we encourage you to make an appointment with one of our dentists as soon as possible to be checked for gum disease.
