Periodontal Therapy in Milford, MA
It can be easy to notice a problem with your teeth, but most people with an oral health condition have no idea! Gum disease is extremely common in today’s world, and up to 80% of the population has it! Most people have no idea that they have it, either. Many signs of gum disease, which is also called periodontal disease, can be easy to miss by an untrained eye, which is another great reason to attend regularly scheduled general and family dentistry appointments. If we spot indicators of gum disease during an exam, we’ll immediately address it. While we emphasize preventive dental care, 222 Main Street Dental is always ready to help Milford patients restore their oral health. Our team is ready and more than able to treat your smile with periodontal therapy.
Signs of Periodontal Disease
- Gums that hurt or bleed when brushed
- Gums which appear smaller, or teeth that appear longer
- Loosened teeth
- Teeth that fall out
- Swelling of the gums
As you can see, periodontal disease is not a lighthearted issue. Dr. Rumas and Dr. Englander take periodontal cases very seriously, and will quickly respond with gum disease therapy. Call our Milford dentist office immediately if you believe that you may be affected by this condition.
Treating Periodontal Disease
We use non-surgical periodontal therapy to slow the progression of gum disease. Root planing and scaling involves removing bacteria that has worked its way into the gums as well as affected tissue. This can help prevent further progression of the disease and tooth loss, and our Milford dental patients appreciate our ability to perform periodontal therapy as a part of our preventive dentistry services. Our professional staff will treat you gently and with compassion during every treatment, and are ready to rejuvenate your oral health with effective periodontal therapy.
