Protect Your Dental Health
Gum disease is an extremely common oral infection that progressively worsens without intervention. Around half of U.S. adults have some degree of gum disease, yet many are unaware. If you have gum disease, notice any of its symptoms, or are at risk for developing the disease, we encourage you to come in for an evaluation to halt its progression. Dr. Michael Rose has helped countless patients restore the health of their gums after moderate to severe gum disease. Early detection is key to saving your gums and can even prevent permanent damage and tooth loss. We use the latest technologies to clear the infection in your gums and restore gum health.
Common Gum Disease Symptoms
Some symptoms of gum disease aren’t noticeable while others are more obvious. Still, any red flags require immediate attention because an infection in the mouth can spread rapidly and affect other parts of the body.
Common symptoms of gum disease include:
- Severely bad breath
- Bleeding gums
- Bright red gums
- Loose or shifting teeth
- Gum recession
- Tenderness of the gums
- Tooth loss
Gum Disease Treatment Options
Dr. Rose performs several advanced gum disease procedures to help restore health and clear infection. Untreated gum disease has been linked to systemic health concerns such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes; one of our treatment options can help reduce the risk. We offer:
- Laser Gum Therapy
- Osseous Surgery/Flap Surgery
- Scaling and Root Planing
- Periodontal Maintenance
If you have already undergone treatment for gum disease, Dr. Rose will need to see you every three months for periodontal maintenance appointments. These appointments involve a deeper cleaning and checkup to ensure your gums are still free of infection.
Minimally-Invasive Gum Disease Treatment
Laser gum therapy is a minimally invasive procedure and extremely effective for eradicating infection in the mouth. There is no cutting of the tissue involved, and heat from the laser targets diseased areas while helping the gums to heal rapidly shortly after treatment. Laser therapy continues to have a high success rate and can help to restore your gums when you are diagnosed with moderate or severe gum disease.
