Despite our best efforts, our teeth or gums can still fall victim to decay or disease. Gum disease is a condition that is often symptomless and can lead to serious smile problems if left untreated. Michel Dental offers periodontics to help restore your gums and keep you from losing a tooth or gum tissue.
Gum disease is an infection of the gums caused by built up tartar on the surface of your teeth. If it’s allowed to progress, it could cause you to lose a tooth or worse. Also, the infection can spread throughout your body, increasing your risk of heart disease, pulmonary infections, and other health concerns.
We offer a four-part, non-surgical approach to treat your gum disease which is as follows:
- We remove the bacteria that caused the infection by a deep cleaning or antibiotics.
- We determine what caused the infection, and come up with ways to keep it from happening again.
- If you’ve lost bone, we will try and repair this and ensure your smile keeps functioning properly
- We’ll come up with a plan to reduce your risk of further infections.
With periodontics from Dr. Michel, we can treat your gum disease and restore the health of your smile. If you think you might have gum disease or haven’t seen us in a while, give us a call today to schedule an appointment. This is an important part of our preventative smile care.
