Gum disease is often known as a “silent disease”, affecting a majority of the adults today. The signs and symptoms of early-stage gum disease are very subtle and in most cases, patients do not even realize that they have a problem until they visit a dentist. MS Galiza Dental Clinic offers gum therapy to help you maintain healthy gums. To provide us with the opportunity to spot any potential dental health concerns in the early stage itself, schedule an appointment now in Calgary.
Our dental experts perform a thorough periodontal screening during all routine preventive care visits. We detect gum therapy at an early stage so that you do not have to go through the pain of serious oral issues. We recommend gum therapy to avoid further damage to the gums. Gum disease is also a leading cause of tooth loss. Therefore, it is important to take care of it while it is still in its preliminary stage. We will recommend appropriate therapy to address gum disease. We aim at both restoring and maintaining gum health.
Gum therapy is often dependent on the stage of gum disease. It can be as simple as a thorough dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar or intensive. The intensive treatments include:
Scaling and root planing: an intensive cleaning that removes built-up plaque from the gum line, tooth roots and deep pockets of the gums.
Antibacterial rinses: an antibacterial rinse is used between visits to reduce the level of bacteria present in the mouth, especially for patients with persistent gingivitis.
Gum surgery: required in cases of advanced gum disease or periodontitis.
