We proudly offer our dental services to residents of Lawndale, Long Beach, Torrance, Yorba Linda, San Pedro, or Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Understanding Gum Disease

Gum disease is caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar along the gumline, leading to inflammation and infection of the gums. If left untreated, gum disease can progress through various stages, from mild gingivitis to more advanced periodontitis, which can result in irreversible damage to the gums and bone supporting the teeth.

Recognizing Gum Disease Symptoms

It’s essential to be aware of the signs and symptoms of gum disease, which may include:

  • Gums that are red, swollen, or tender
  • Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Pus between the teeth and gums

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek prompt evaluation and treatment from a qualified dentist.

Gum Disease Diagnosis and Stages

During your dental examination, your dentist will assess the health of your gums and teeth and may perform diagnostic tests, such as measuring gum pocket depths and taking X-rays, to determine the extent of gum disease. Based on the findings, gum disease is classified into various stages, ranging from mild (gingivitis) to severe (advanced periodontitis).

Customized Gum Disease Treatment

At Digital Smiles, we offer personalized gum disease treatment plans tailored to your unique needs and the stage of your gum disease. Treatment options may include:

  • Professional Dental Cleanings: Removing plaque and tartar buildup through regular dental cleanings is essential for controlling gum disease and preventing its progression.
  • Scaling and Root Planing: This deep cleaning procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from below the gumline and smoothing the root surfaces to promote gum tissue reattachment and healing.
  • Antibacterial Therapy: Antibacterial mouth rinses or locally applied antibiotics may be prescribed to help control bacterial infection and reduce inflammation in the gums.

Preventing Gum Disease

While gum disease is common, it is largely preventable with proper oral hygiene and regular dental care. Here are some tips to help prevent gum disease:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and debris between the teeth
  • Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings
  • Avoid smoking and tobacco use
  • Maintain a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables
