Thorough Treatment for Gum Disease

Dentist Vero Beach

Periodontal disease is very treatable but cannot be fully cured, so after treatment, you’ll need regular maintenance care. These visits involve thorough professional cleaning and monitoring to ensure the disease does not recur. We recommend alternating your periodontal maintenance visits with general dentistry visits to provide timely, consistent care for your oral health. A dental deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, is often recommended for patients with or at risk of gum disease. This procedure involves removing plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smoothing teeth roots to prevent bacteria buildup. Symptoms of gum disease include bleeding or swollen gums, bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems.
