Your Gum Health Is Critically Important and a Periodontist in Alpharetta Can Keep Gums Healthy

As a periodontist in Alpharetta, we can restore your oral health by treating any signs of gum disease. Many people are unaware of how important gum health is to overall health. Your gums are what hold your teeth securely in place, and without them, your teeth could become loose and even fall out. We can help to prevent this and other complications that can arise from gum disease.

If you have not been to the dentist lately, there are several signs of gum disease you should watch for. Most of these you will notice when brushing your teeth. To start, look and see if your teeth appear longer than they used to. If so, this could be a sign of gum recession or your gums pulling away from your tooth structure. You should also look to see if your gums appear red, swollen, or are bleeding when you brush and floss your teeth. These can all be indicators of gum disease, and if you catch the condition early, you may not need a major treatment. However, the longer you let this condition fester, the more discomfort you will feel on a daily basis and the more intensive of a procedure will be necessary to correct the problem.

There are several ways a periodontist can restore your gums, including:

Deep cleaning. Very often, we can treat gum disease by performing a deep cleaning. Since gum disease is typically caused by plaque building up and becoming trapped under the gums, removing the plaque and tartar will remove the irritant and allow your gums to be restored to perfect health. This is the first step in any treatment plan because if the plaque remains, your gums will become unhealthy again.
Laser therapy. We use lasers to treat gum disease and to restore the health of the gums themselves. We can use them to break up the plaque under the gums and as a way to rejuvenate the gums and prompt growth due to gum recession.
Gum grafting. When the gums have receded to the point that your teeth are exposed and potentially becoming loose, major steps are required to correct it. We can do so using a gum graft. This is where tissue is taken from the roof of your mouth or from a donor and sutured to your gums before being pulled back around the teeth. Performing this procedure will help to keep your gums safe after they have receded. We also have a non-invasive method for doing this that does not require sutures or removing tissue from the roof of your mouth. To discuss our innovative solutions, call and schedule a consultation.
To schedule an appointment with a periodontist, call our Alpharetta dental office today. We are experts at what we do and will examine you before determining what type of procedure you need to ensure excellent gum health. Since we use a variety of treatment methods, you can count on us when you need treatment and want to recover quickly.
