NE Calgary Periodontal Gum Therapy | Pathways Dental Clinic

What is Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)?

NE Calgary Periodontal disease is a serious condition in which the gum tissue becomes inflamed due to bacterial infection. This results in bone loss around the teeth, along with the recession of the gums, and it can eventually lead to tooth loss. Think of it as losing the foundation that holds your teeth in place.

What are the Symptoms of Gum Disease?

  • Bad Breath
  • Gums that are swollen or bleed easily when brushing and flossing
  • Teeth that have loosened
  • Gum Recession
  • Sensitivity of teeth and gums

Treatment for Gum Disease

The easiest way to keep your natural teeth is to treat NE Calgary Gum Disease as early as possible and continually maintain good gum health. Bacteria and contaminants that irritate the gum tissue are minimized by a professional deep dental cleaning (scaling and root planing), which targets such bacteria and irritants. Pathways Dental Clinic is committed to thorough cleaning procedures that provide the best long-term prognosis when it comes to scaling and root planning for periodontal therapy.

In some cases, treatments such as bone or tissue grafting, or locally placed antibiotics may also need to be introduced. Such additional steps tend to improve patients with more aggressive gum disease response to treatment.

Our hygienists will advise you on the best treatment for gum disease and will give recommendations to ensure you are preventing gum disease

Potential Health Risks of Gum Disease

Science has shown that aggressive gum disease increases the risk of many systemic health conditions. Diabetes, premature labor in pregnant women, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, for example, have all been scientifically shown to have a direct correlation with advanced periodontitis. Periodontal disease isn’t just a disease of the mouth but affects the whole body.

Unfortunately, once Periodontal Disease starts, it can be an ongoing disease and must be continually treated to maintain good oral and overall health. Fortunately, there is a lot you can do at home to improve the health of your gums and prevent gum disease from starting or worsening. By visiting Pathways Dental Clinic, you will learn from our dental hygienists about the most effective ways to avoid gum disease both at our clinic and techniques for home care.
