Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a prevalent oral health issue that affects millions of adults worldwide. At Hills Park Dental, we understand the significance of addressing gum disease promptly and effectively to maintain not only your oral health but also your overall wellbeing. Our dentists will check for signs of gum disease during your regular dental exams. If you are diagnosed, we will work with you to find a treatment that will be effective in fighting the disease and improving your oral health.

Gum disease progresses in stages, with gingivitis being the initial phase. It often manifests subtly, with symptoms like bleeding gums, redness and tenderness. Fortunately, gingivitis can be reversed through nonsurgical methods such as deep dental cleanings and improved oral hygiene practices. Catching and treating gum disease at this stage is crucial in preventing further complications.

If left untreated, gingivitis can progress into periodontitis, a more severe stage of gum disease. Periodontitis can lead to tissue and bone loss, causing teeth to become loose and affect your bite. Our experienced dentists and team offer comprehensive periodontal treatment, including medication to control bacteria, pocket reduction surgery and bone grafting when necessary.

We prioritize minimally invasive approaches to gum disease treatment, emphasizing nonsurgical methods like scaling and root planing. This procedure removes plaque and tartar below the gumline, eliminating the inflammatory agents responsible for gum disease. Additionally, antimicrobial medications can be applied to reduce bacterial populations.

For advanced cases, we offer periodontal surgery, including flap surgery and other laser procedures, which effectively clean and treat affected areas, reduce pocket depth and recontour tissues. Our goal is to halt disease progression, restore your oral health and improving your overall quality of life.

Maintaining optimal periodontal health is not only essential for your smile but also for your systemic wellbeing, as gum disease has been linked to various medical issues.
