Treating Gum Disease Promptly Can Save Your Smile  

When it comes to oral health, gums are likely to be overlooked. Most people tend to put their efforts into getting healthy-looking teeth, forgetting about gums. Taking optimal care for your gums is as crucial as caring for your teeth. The same bacteria that wear down your teeth can cause gum disease. Unfortunately, unlike teeth problems, gum disease is subtle and can go unnoticed until severe symptoms start cropping up.

Would you like to take control of your periodontal care? If you are in Fallbrook, California, and its environs, please schedule an appointment with James M. Moran DDS, for gum disease treatment.

Why it’s essential to address your gum disease in good time

Your smile isn’t the same with unhealthy gums. So, taking care of your gums before periodontal diseases cause mayhem is a top priority. Gum disease occurs when a bacteria film (plaque) builds up due to poor oral hygiene. At the early stages (gingivitis), gum disease is reversible before it morphs into a more severe gum disease called periodontitis.

Unfortunately, you only have a small window before gingivitis develops to become a permanent concern for your oral health.

What happens if you let gum disease progress?

When you slip up in your oral health proactiveness and let gum disease advance, it may be irreversible but can be managed with periodontal treatments. While there are numerous gum disease therapies, the objective is the same: to remove the plaque encouraging bacteria growth.

At our practice, Dr. James Moran uses the treatments below to treat gum disease:

  • Scaling and root planing: Your dentist uses special equipment to remove tartar and plaque buildup on the teeth and gums.
  • Antibiotic therapy: The doctor may administer oral or topical antibiotics to keep infection under control.
