Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects many individuals, often without them realizing it until significant symptoms appear. It’s crucial to catch this condition early, and at Bookcliff Family Dental, we’re here to help. Our dedicated team provides comprehensive treatments to halt periodontal disease progression, restore oral health, and protect teeth.

  • What are the signs of periodontal disease or gum disease?

    The signs of periodontal disease can vary but typically include:

    • Red, swollen, or tender gums
    • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
    • Persistent bad breath
    • Receding gums
    • Loose or shifting teeth

    Schedule an examination right away if you notice any of these symptoms.

  • How is periodontal disease or gum disease treated?

    Periodontal disease treatment depends on the severity of the condition. At Bookcliff Family Dental, our goal is to control the infection and restore the health of your gums. We offer a range of treatments, from deep cleaning procedures like scaling and root planing, which remove plaque and tartar below the gum line, to more advanced surgical options such as bone grafting. The dentist regenerates the jawbone by applying proteins and artificial bone-like material to the areas of decay to encourage new bone growth. 

  • How do I know if I have periodontal disease or gum disease?

    A professional dental examination is the only definitive way to see if you have periodontal disease. However, the first signs are often red, swollen gums, and bleeding when you floss or brush. We use diagnostic tools, including dental X-rays and periodontal probing, to assess the health of your gums and the bones around your teeth. Routine check-ups are critical for early detection and effective treatment.

  • What is gum recession?

    Gum recession is a condition in which the gum tissue surrounding the teeth wears away or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth, and can be a sign of periodontal disease. Your dentist can help halt the recession and sometimes restore the gum tissue.
