Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Care from Balian Family Dental

Gum disease can be dangerous to your health. Prevent tooth loss and health decline with periodontal care from Balian Family Dental. We provide comprehensive periodontal care to prevent and relieve gum disease.

Our proactive approach to gum health ensures your smile stays healthy. When gum disease does strike, we administer thorough techniques to return your gums to a state of wellness. Our periodontal services include:

  • Deep Cleanings – Prevention is the best way to combat periodontal disease. A deep cleaning removes the build-up of plaque and tartar. Although brushing twice a day is essential, self-care can’t accomplish the same level of thoroughness as a professional deep cleaning. Twice a year is all that’s needed to maintain good periodontal health.
  • Root Scaling and Planing – Root scaling removes the plaque that accumulates beneath the gum line. Next, planing smooths the surface to encourage the gums to reattach. This procedure is often paired with an antibiotic wash to prevent infection. Our team ensures you stay comfortable throughout this delicate procedure.
  • Gum Grafts – Periodontal disease can reduce the gum line and give an uneven appearance to the smile. A gum graft adds material to the gums, increasing their volume and length. If you think you could be a candidate for this procedure, call us to schedule a consultation or ask about gum grafts at your next cleaning.
  • Pocket Reduction – Plaque and tartar deposits can move the gum tissue away from the root of the tooth. The gum pockets can remain loose even after the deposits are removed. A pocket reduction prevents these areas from accumulating plaque and decay.

Gum Disease Warning Signs

All too often, the signs of gum disease are subtle and are often ignored. The beginning stages can even be asymptomatic. Contact us as soon as possible if you do notice troubling symptoms, like tenderness or swelling of the gums. This means your body is currently fighting the bacterial invaders.

Bleeding gums are never normal, even after flossing or brushing with a hard-bristled brush. A receding gum line may indicate that your body is losing its fight against bacteria.
