We have several dentists in our two practices at Family Specialty Dentistry who want patients to have options for achieving the smile they’ve always wanted. When problems arise such as periodontal disease, it is important for patients to work with a dental professional to treat the problem and bring the smile back to health as soon as possible.
Periodontal disease is a serious issue that can be easily prevented with proper oral health care habits. When patients brush and floss their teeth after every meal, they can keep issues such as this from occurring. However, when it does occur, diagnosis and treatment may be needed.
Diagnosis of periodontal disease is typically done during an evaluation. Patients may begin to notice they are struggling with persistent bad breath, even after brushing and flossing. Patients may see blood on their toothbrush or floss when they are caring for their smile, which is another red flag that the condition has developed. In more severe cases, patients may notice their gum tissues shrinking and their teeth becoming loose. Scheduling an evaluation with a dentist is the best way to diagnose the stage at which the condition has reached and decide on an appropriate treatment plan to bring the smile back to health. This may include procedures such as scaling and root planing.
