Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. It can affect overall health as well as quality of life. The team at Nashua Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, PLLC in Nashua provides biological and holistic treatments. We are mindful of the effects of treatments on the mouth, teeth, gums, and whole body. Gum disease treatment is no exception. We are happy to explain the non-surgical methods we provide to restore gum health.
We believe in preventive care to help patients avoid conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease. We do all we can to educate our patients, tailor preventive care plans to meet their individual needs, and answer any questions they may have. During a cleaning, plaque and tartar will be removed from above and below the gum line. There will be a thorough examination to ensure optimal oral health.
It is recommended patients visit the dentist biannually for appointments that include professional cleanings and examinations; however, we may recommend dental cleaning more often if we identify signs of gum disease. Signs include gums that bleed when brushing or flossing, tender gums, soreness, and bad breath. Dental cleaning is critical because it can help avoid the development of gum disease.
When patients suffer from gum disease, they can be assured treatment is available. Deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a non-surgical treatment that can restore health to the smile. We will administer local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort before the procedure. Tooth roots are smoothed, and plaque and tartar are scraped away. The result is a clean surface for the gums to reattach to the teeth.
