Your Treatment for the Leading Cause of Adult Tooth Loss
Periodontal (gum) disease is the primary cause of adult tooth loss. You can reduce or eliminate the risk to your teeth and gums with an early diagnosis and treatment plan.
Know your symptoms
Your prevention and treatment success for gum disease increases when you prioritize dental examinations and teeth cleanings. Your Exton dentist will evaluate your gum tissue for any common symptoms that threaten your gum health.
Gum disease symptoms include bleeding, inflamed, or swollen gums. Gingivitis is the earliest phase of gum disease followed by periodontitis as your symptoms worsen.
Early diagnosis and treatment improves your oral health
It’s essential that you seek treatment as early as possible when you notice the common symptoms. Your tooth loss and health risks increase the longer you postpone diagnosis and treatment.
The value of deep cleanings
Scaling and root planing are necessary to treat gum disease. Your treatment focuses on the disease causing infection beneath your gum line.
Contact our Exton dental office to discuss your gum disease symptoms. Schedule a dental examination for a thorough periodontal evaluation.
