Gum Disease Treatment in Miami
Red, swollen gums, a bad taste in your mouth, are red flags for one thing: gum disease.
If you have the symptoms, you're not alone. More than 80% of adults have some form of gum disease. Fortunately, there are many effective and pain-free gum disease treatments.
Inflammation and bleeding of the gums is the mildest form of gum disease, treatment typically involves a thorough dental cleaning, followed by daily brushing and flossing.
Advanced gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, involves not only gum irritation but also bone loss, requires scaling and root planing to remove stubborn deposits below the gum line, and is done usually under local anesthesia.
If non-surgical methods of gum disease treatment are ineffective, a gingivectomy, or periodontal surgery, may be necessary.
