What Is Gum Disease?
Periodontal (gum) disease is a condition of inflammation in the gums, which may lead to critical damage to your mouth. There are three stages of periodontal disease that range from mild to advanced. The very first phase is gingivitis, which is caused by a buildup of plaque under the gumline. Without treatment, gingivitis may develop into the second phase called periodontitis, which affects the fibers and bone that hold your tooth roots. Advanced periodontitis is the final stage of gum disease, which may cause teeth to become loose or fall out. To deal with gum disease, Dali Dental offers both surgical and nonsurgical treatments, depending on the seriousness of the disease, including scaling and root planing, antibiotics, tooth extraction, and more. When you have symptoms of gum infection, get in touch with our office in Plano, TX as soon as possible to schedule an examination with Dr. Dao Pham.
How Is Gum Disease Treated?
Gum disease treatments will vary based on the phase of the infection. If Dr. Pham diagnoses you with periodontal disease, he will go over his recommendations for your treatment plan. In cases caught early, scaling and root planing (SRP) is usually done to deep clean your gum pockets. In more serious cases, an antibiotic can be taken in addition to numerous SRP treatments. Acute cases of gum disease normally require gum surgery, such as pocket reduction or gum grafting.
