Why Early Gum Disease Treatment Matters

Posted .

If you notice signs of gum disease in your smile, we urge you to seek professional dental treatment right away. Here at Quality Dental Care, we are familiar with the dangers of gum disease, and we are committed to providing gum disease treatment early to prevent the damaging effects of an advanced infection.

There are many side effects of gum disease, several of which are very dangerous to your oral health. These include bad breath; bleeding, swollen and tender gums; tooth loss and bone loss. If not treated, gum disease can quickly become very serious, which is why we strive to provide immediate gum treatment to stop gum disease in its tracks. At the first sign of the gum disease, you should come visit Dr. Bogdan Bodroug to discuss your treatment options and develop a plan of action.

Options for gum disease treatment may include dental crowns, root canal treatment and a deep cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. You can also reduce the risk of gum disease at home by maintaining effective oral hygiene habits such as brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing, keeping your diet healthy and not using any tobacco products.

If you suspect you have gum disease and would like to see our dentist for a diagnosis, please contact Quality Dental Care in Vancouver, Washington, at 360-448-7018 today.
