MANY PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE that caring for their gums is just as important as caring for their teeth. Maybe even more so!

Periodontal Disease Is The #1 Cause for Tooth Loss

Periodontal disease is outrageously common, and once it progresses, it’s challenging to control by yourself.

Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection of the gums that attacks not just the supporting tissue of your teeth, but also the bone that locks your teeth in place.

The More Progressed, The Harder To Control

The first stage of gum disease is gingivitis, in which you may experience some tenderness and bleeding in the gums.

The next stage is periodontal disease, wherein gums become more inflamed and can start receding.

Untreated, this can become advanced periodontal disease, where your tooth’s support structure has deteriorated. Teeth can become loose, or even fall out.

We Offer Treatment For Every Stage

It’s incredibly important to take charge at the first signs of gum disease. Here at Dental Partners of Boston, we offer a variety of treatments for gum disease.

This may include root planing and scaling, a non-surgical procedure that makes it easier to clean and monitor your gums and teeth. If gum disease has progressed further, we may need to remove the diseased tissue to prevent further spread of the infection. We do this cleanly and accurately with laser technology.

Regular Appointments Are Crucial To Monitor, Prevent, and Treat

Your regular appointments are so important. You may not notice the signs of gum disease until it’s very progressed, but our team can!

Remember, if you want to keep your teeth for the rest of your life, it’s important to take good care of your gums today.

Thanks for being a valued part of our practice. We appreciate you!
