If your gums feel tender, are inflamed, or you experience bleeding while brushing or flossing, you may be suffering from some level of periodontal disease (gum disease.) Gum disease is very common, affecting almost 80% of all American adults over thirty and is a serious and persistent infection that affects gum and bone tissue around your teeth. Research has shown that even mild periodontal disease can contribute to serious general health problems like heart and respiratory disease, so prompt treatment of gum disease is essential to protecting your oral health and general well-being.
An examination for gum disease is always part of your regular check-up here at Central Dental Care. We offer the latest in treatment, including state-of-the-art ultrasonic scalers and laser-assisted periodontal therapy. Rather than simply treating gum disease the way that they did ten, or more, years ago, we employ the latest technology and strategies for diagnosing and effectively treating periodontal disease. We, here at Central Dental Care, know that some patients are worried that periodontal treatments might be uncomfortable or even painful. Rest assured that Dr. Espinoza and our team of professional Hygienists utilize the latest technology to treat gum disease quickly and painlessly.
