Periodontal disease damages not only your gums but all your supporting oral structures, including your jawbone. In some cases, gum disease can cause your supporting bone to resorb, or shrink, which in turn causes your teeth to become loose and unstable in your mouth. If untreated, this will eventually lead to tooth loss. Fortunately, there are a number of treatments available to manage periodontal disease and to halt or prevent this bone loss.
If you are diagnosed with gum disease, our dentists will first determine the severity of the disease. If caught early, gum disease can often be successfully treated with nonsurgical options such as additional dental cleanings (including deep cleanings), improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, or scaling and root planing. More severe stages of the disease often require surgical treatments to improve your oral health. These more severe stages are also the ones that affect the health of your supporting bone, and if bone loss is discovered, our dentists may recommend bone grafting to help you regain healthy bone tissue to support your teeth.
We will discuss all our findings and your treatment options with you after your initial exam and consultation. To schedule an appointment and learn more, please contact our office today.
