Gum Disease

Treatment for Gum Disease

Gum disease is incredibly common, even in people who regularly clean their teeth. While dental hygiene plays a large part in preventing gum disease, no one is ever completely immune. Your dental hygiene regime may be frequent, but that doesn’t mean you are properly maintaining good oral health and hygiene. There is a lot of misinformation surrounding oral hygiene, and it can often result in people, who otherwise take care of their teeth and gums, falling victim to gum disease.

One of the most important aspects of treating gum disease is proper education in oral health care. At Vida Dental, not only will you receive the dental treatment you need to combat gum disease, you will receive education that will help you prevent infection occurring in the first place.

Symptoms and Causes of Periodontal Disease

Most people think bleeding gums are the first sign of gum disease. However, you may have gum disease without seeing bleeding in your gums. You may not be aware of the issue until the condition has advanced beyond simple treatment options. Redness, swelled or painful gums are just some of the other common indications of gum or periodontal disease.

The best defense against gum disease is regular checkups and education from the helpful team at Vida Dental. We aim to provide you with all the information you need to avoid gum disease through comprehensive exams and informative sessions with your dental hygienist. When your cleaning and brushing regime is reinforced by hints and tips from experts, you are much less likely to suffer from periodontal disease.
