Reclaiming Healthy Smiles After Gum Disease

Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the two most common oral health concerns affecting US adults. In fact, some research indicates that 50% or more of patients over the age of 30 have some form of gum disease, and advanced periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. Luckily, this oral health condition is completely preventable with thorough at-home hygiene and regular visits to Columbian Square Dental in Weymouth. We partner with patients to keep their smiles whole and healthy for life, but when gum disease isn’t prevented, we also offer periodontal therapy in Weymouth, MA to fully renew your oral health and keep you smiling. If you would like to learn more, please call our Weymouth dentist and dental team to schedule a treatment consultation. We’ll work with you to create a customized periodontal therapy plan to fully renew your oral health.

Prevention is the Key to Healthy Gums

Our Weymouth dentist and dental care team are dedicated to helping patients keep their smiles whole and healthy for life. When it comes to gum disease, preventive care is the key to preserving oral health. Gum disease occurs when plaque buildups up at the gum line irritating soft tissue. This early form of gum disease is known as gingivitis. Over time, the irritated soft tissue is broken down, leading to the more advanced form of gum disease, periodontitis. Without proper treatment, advanced gum disease can lead to serious oral health concerns, including tooth loss. Additionally, gum disease has been linked to numerous whole body health issues.

Mouth-Body Connection

Patients with gum disease are at higher risk for chronic and systemic illnesses like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, struggling with periodontal disease can increase the chances of pre-term or low-weight births in expecting mothers. If you’re suffering from gum disease, let your physician know. It’s important to plan care for both periodontitis and systemic illnesses in conjunction to ensure successful treatment.

Warning Signs of Gum Disease

You’ll only know for sure that you’re suffering from gum disease after an examination from a skilled dentist, but you should let us know right away if you notice any of the following warnings signs:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red, swollen, irritated gums
  • Infection in the gums
  • Teeth that feel loose
  • A bite that doesn’t fit together properly
  • Chronic bad breath that doesn’t improve with cleaning

Periodontal Therapy Options

At Columbian Square Dental, we offer a variety of treatments for gum disease sufferers. For those with mild gingivitis, more frequent professional teeth cleanings and improved at-home hygiene may be adequate to restore your oral health. However, for patients with the more severe periodontitis, we may need to couple improved preventive maintenance with more advanced treatments like:

  • Scaling – removal of plaque and tartar buildup and damaged tissue at or below the gum line
  • Root planing – smoothing of tooth roots to prevent future plaque and tartar buildup
  • Antibiotic therapy – to reduce the amount of plaque-producing oral bacteria and help patients maintain their optimal oral health
