Gum disease is a common condition that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. With early detection and treatment, our team can give you the care you need before the condition worsens. For gum disease treatment in Roseville, we have you covered.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gum disease affects nearly half of Americans over the age of 30. Our team at Roseville Dental Center is here to provide comprehensive gum disease treatment for all our patients. We also offer cosmetic treatments that will improve the look of your gums and smile.
Gum disease, or gingivitis, is caused by built-up plaque and bacteria due to poor oral hygiene. Other factors such as family history, smoking, pregnancy and diabetes can also cause or increase your risk of gum disease. Bacteria from the plaque attacks your gum tissue, which can cause
If left untreated, gum disease progresses into its advanced form, called periodontitis. Periodontitis causes your gums to recede from your teeth, exposing your tooth roots and causing your teeth to loosen in their sockets. The infection can also spread to your jawbone and lead to bone tissue loss.
Gum disease is completely reversible when it is caught early, but many of the signs and symptoms can go unnoticed for years. Undiagnosed gum disease can lead to infections, tooth loss and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. If you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease, call our office today.
Your dentist in Roseville offers many advanced gum treatments, from deep cleanings to laser gum therapy, that will protect your gums and your smile for years to come. Our comprehensive list of periodontal services include:
We will perform a deep cleaning to scrape away the plaque from your teeth and root surfaces. During this procedure, we will also smooth the surface of your tooth roots to prevent bacteria from collecting there and causing more decay.
During this procedure, our dentist will remove diseased gum tissue using a laser, making the recovery and healing period shorter than traditional surgical treatment.
During this surgical procedure, our dentist will clean out the bacteria from the periodontal pocket, the space between your receding gum tissue and exposed tooth root. Then he will reattach the healthy gum tissue around your tooth to protect the root.
If your teeth appear short or you have a “gummy” smile, our dentist can remove the excess gum and bone tissue to reshape your gum line. This will expose more of your teeth and give a more natural, confident smile.
When you lose a tooth, sometimes the bone and tissue surrounding the tooth socket can collapse. We can graft bone tissue into the tooth socket to help it and the surrounding area maintain its shape.
This surgical procedure is used to add bone tissue to your upper jaw in the area surrounding your molar and premolars. We often perform this procedure to restore your jawbone following tooth loss, or to make it easier to install a dental implant.
