Periodontic TreatmentsOral diseases affecting gum strength most commonly cause gum deterioration and retraction. Infrequent oral hygiene is a common factor in the escalation of bacterial growth inside of the mouth and inside the gum line. When harmful bacteria are not removed, sticky plaque forms and is attached to the teeth and gum line. This bacteria begin to decay healthy teeth and can be absorbed into the gum line slowly destroying the tooth root. When left untreated, these oral disorders can lead to gingivitis and more serious periodontal diseases. Our Sacramento dentist performs routine and advanced periodontic dental treatments.
Gum Disease Diagnosis
Our dentist will examine the teeth and gum line for bacterial growth and oral imperfections. General gum disease diagnosis will be performed and common evidence of escalated gum disease can be present. The gum line becomes infected and reddened due to infection of the gum. When brushing or flossing, the gum can begin to bleed easily without prior damage. This early diagnosis of gum disease by our dentist in Sacramento is common among patients.
Early diagnosis of gum disease is the key in successful and complete treatment of this disease. Having regular checkups with our Sacramento periodontist can help finding the signs of this disease early on and starting treatment as soon as possible.
