So, you were recently diagnosed with gum disease. While this may sound scary, if the disease is still in its early stages, it can be relatively easy to treat. Typically, when you get diagnosed early, it is also easy to reverse the effects of.
The moment you get the diagnosis, it is important that you schedule an appointment to come into our offices and let us see you right away. That way, we can start treatment as soon as possible.
What Is the First Step in Gum Disease Treatment?The first part of gum disease treatment is having a scaling and root planing done on your teeth. What this means is that we take tools and go down between your gums and your teeth to clean out any plaque and tartar that has built up in this gap.
Plus, we make sure to remove any bacteria or infection that is on either the surface of your tooth, or on the inside of your gums.
After we clean out this area, we make sure to gently put the gum tissue back against your tooth so that the tissue can grab hold of the healthy tooth once more. This should help rid your mouth of the bacteria causing your gum disease.
Plus, it should help keep your gums tightly holding on to your teeth, preventing any type of gum disease recurrence in the future so long as you carefully take care of your mouth.
If you would like a bit more information on how to treat gum disease, contact our office today. We will schedule an appointment for you to come in and see what we can do. The sooner you get started with treating the early stages of gum disease, the less damage it can do to your mouth.
