A strong part of our commitment to provide quality family dental care is helping you maintain the health of your gums. Healthy gums are not only essential to preserve your smile, but unhealthy gums can affect your overall health. You can trust that our professionals at Dame Street Dental are equipped to help you maintain healthy gums as well as treat gums that are diseased or infected. We offer personalized assessments and advanced treatments for periodontal disease, ensuring your gum health is restored quickly and effectively.
Dame Street Dental proudly adopts the latest technology in dental care. This includes state-of-the-art equipment, such as Ultra Sonic Cleaning & Scaling, that can comfortably and successfully treat early gum disease. Gum disease is a condition that we take very seriously, as it can lead to tooth loss and compromise your overall health if left untreated. Whether you are experiencing the first signs of gingivitis or suffering from advanced periodontal disease, our dentists will find a treatment solution that will save you from future complications.
Not all symptoms of gum disease are obvious. Gum disease can be a silent condition until it reaches more advanced stages. However, there are warning signs that may indicate that your gum health is at risk. Let us know at Dame Street Dental if you experience any of the following symptoms:
Red, swollen or tender gums
Bleeding while brushing or flossing
Gums that are receding or pulling away from the teeth
Loose or separating teeth
Pus between your gums and teeth
Sores in your mouth
Persistent bad breath
A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
Detecting and treating gum disease at its earliest stages is critical to overcoming this serious infection. Maintaining a diligent oral hygiene routine at home as well as attending your professional dental cleaning appointments can ensure your gum health is kept in check. At Dame Street Dental, we educate our patients on the risk factors associated with gum disease as well as the maintenance plan that faciliates optimal oral health.
