Gum disease in Naples

When it comes to establishing and maintaining the health of your smile, your Naples dental office is here for you. Among the most harmful dental conditions your dentist can help prevent and treat is gum disease, a condition with several stages of severity. In its initial stage, gingivitis, gum disease can be completely reversed by practicing good oral hygiene and receiving periodic teeth cleanings from your dentist. In its later stage, periodontitis, gum disease can begin to cause the gums to recede, and loosen teeth. By the time the last stage of periodontal disease is given the chance to develop, significant amounts of gum and bone tissue can be lost, and worst of all, teeth. Your dentist would like you to avoid the challenges associated with gum disease by coming in for a periodontal evaluation and routine preventive care.

One of the difficulties with gum disease, is that it often progresses painlessly. By scheduling regular checkups at your Naples dental office, your dentist can closely monitor the health of your gums and make sure gum disease hasn’t begun to develop in your mouth. Oral hygiene plays a critical role in preventing and stopping the progression of gum disease, so your dentist will be sure to show you the best methods for keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Patients with diabetes, or users of certain medications or tobacco products are at an increased risk for gum disease, and your dentist may recommend more frequent visits for preventive care. For patients with periodontitis, your dentist provides specialized therapy to remove harmful bacteria from beneath the gum line.

Always conscientious of your oral health and comfort, your Naples dental office offers gentle and precise care with the most conservative treatment methods. If it’s been a while since you last visited a dentist, seize the day and schedule a periodontal exam at the office of George Mantikas DMD! Your mouth would kiss you if it could!
