At Dr. Rosenfeld’s office, we take periodontal disease treatment seriously. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can have a serious impact on your oral health and your general health.
Gum Disease Treatment in Solana Beach
In minor cases, gum disease can cause bleeding gums, pain, and bad breath. Issues like gingivitis are often easily treated with a professional dental cleaning and continued dental hygiene at home.
When you are dealing with more serious periodontal disease, you may experience receding gums and adult tooth loss. Gum disease can also lead to more serious concerns such as heart disease and pregnancy complications. Fortunately, Dr. Rosenfeld and our team can treat gum disease and assist patients with maintaining their health.
Some symptoms of periodontal disease are:
- Halitosis, or chronic bad breath.
- Bleeding gums.
- Teeth that appear longer because gums are receding.
- Sensitive and/or swollen gums.
- Increased redness along the gumline.
- Unexplained mouth sores.
- Mouth pain.
- Pus between your teeth and gums.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, call our office right away. If you have active gum disease, Dr. Rosenfeld and our dental team offer non-surgical periodontal services. With our periodontal treatments, we can improve your oral health and protect your mouth from further breakdown.
How Does Gum Disease Occur?
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that spreads throughout your mouth. Gum disease is also contagious and can be spread through saliva. If you believe you may be at risk, our dental team can treat the problem at its source.
Dr. Rosenfeld wants you to have the best possible health. We can show you gum disease prevention tips,and we do our best to help you develop strong, healthy gums.
