Protect Your Oral Health with Comprehensive Gum Disease Therapy in Brookfield, WI

March 17, 2015

168725332Swollen and bleeding gums should never be ignored. Although gum disease is preventable, treatable, and in some cases reversible, many patients misinterpret these facts to mean that gum disease isn’t a serious oral health concern. In fact, gum disease is a serious medical condition that can infect other parts of the body and is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. If you have gum disease symptoms, don’t ignore them; schedule a gum disease therapy appointment with the highly qualified general dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental delivers quality care daily throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and the surrounding communities.

How Does Gum Disease Develop?

o   Gum disease at this stage is easier to treat because it only affects the gums.

o   Patients with gingivitis typically have red, swollen, and bleeding gums.

o   Left untreated, gingivitis can lead to a more serious condition known as periodontitis.

o   Periodontitis often occurs when gingivitis is left untreated.

o   Bacteria cause chronic infection in the gums and supporting tissues.

o   Pockets, or deep spaces, form between teeth and gums.

o   Can cause destruction of supporting bone and tooth loss.

o   May lead to disease progression and surgery.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

Scaling and root planing is a trusted and effective gum disease therapy option. In this procedure, we will gently clean plaque and tartar from your teeth and tooth roots. Scaling and root planing can remove much of the plaque below your gum line where harmful bacteria produce the toxins which irritate your gums and cause inflammation. Further treatment may also include antibiotics. In the case of advanced stage periodontitis, gum and flap surgery may be required to fully restore your good oral health.

Brookfield Gum Disease Therapy Appointments

When you come in for a dental checkup, we can accurately measure the depth of your gum pockets. A pocket depth of 4 or more millimeters is a clear indicator of gum disease. If you avoid the gum disease treatment you need, it could lead to potentially invasive and expensive surgeries in the future. Don’t postpone the treatment you need any longer. Schedule a gum disease therapy appointment with the trusted general dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serves families daily throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and the neighboring areas.
