Gum disease is one of the major causes of mouth pain and tooth loss, and is extremely common in adults. It’s caused by a buildup of plaque on the teeth, which leads to inflammation that can destroy gum tissue. And this inflammation isn’t just bad for your gums; it can also lead to inflammation elsewhere in the body and contribute to cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and other serious health problems.
Gum disease is progressive and largely irreversible. But the good news is that treatments exist that can stop the progression of the disease.
At Oakville Dental Care, we offer perio therapy, which is a supercharged version of a dental cleaning. Using special instruments that penetrate deep into the areas above and below the gum line, perio therapy thoroughly removes all plaque and bacteria, stopping damage and inflammation in its tracks.
Perio therapy can be done in one appointment, but severe cases may require multiple sessions. However, you’ll see the difference immediately. Your teeth will be whiter, your breath will be fresher, and after a short period of sensitivity, your gums and mouth will feel better.
With proper oral hygiene and regular follow-up care, you can avoid further gum damage and associated health risks.
