Periodontal Dentistry

Gums are the mucosal tissues that cover the jaw bones and surround the teeth. Healthy gums are usually pink in color and should be firm and fit snugly around the teeth. If gums begin to bleed when brushed or flossed, if they look dark red or inflamed, or seem to be pulling away from your teeth, you may have periodontal disease. Our periodontal dentistry experts can help you.

Preventing gum disease is our goal. Our experts in periodontal dentistry can provide you with valuable information on keeping your gums healthy. Good dental hygiene is one of the best ways to do this. Brushing twice daily and flossing daily keep plaque under control, reduce oral bacteria, and prevent tartar buildup. Regular visits for cleanings and checkups can also help keep your gums healthy. Other good dental habits include a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a tobacco-free lifestyle.

Periodontal Dentistry in Pretty Smile Dental

If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, early treatment can help reduce the risk of more severe damage. Our periodontal dentistry experts offer a variety of noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments and procedures that can get the infection under control and reduce the risk of more serious dental disease. Deep cleaning procedures and topical antimicrobials may both be options for you. If the infection has spread deeper into your oral cavity, surgery may be necessary.

While you may think primarily of your teeth when it comes to your smile, your gums frame your teeth, which means that a balanced, harmonious appearance can be more flattering. Excess gum tissues can be trimmed and contoured while a receding gum line can be augmented to restore a more attractive appearance to your smile. Our chief periodontist Dr. Sophie Geng can help you decide if cosmetic periodontal treatments are right for you.

Keeping your gums healthy may just be one of the most important things you can do for your smile. Give us a call today to learn more about periodontal dentistry or to schedule your appointment with our periodontal dentistry experts.
