Gum Disease treatment in Richmond
Gums, Bone and Connective Tissues Treatment
Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. As a result of the disease’s weak first symptoms, some people don’t even become aware of a problem until the condition has severely damaged their gums and oral health. We provide periodontal services to stop the spread of gum disease and restore tooth health if you have concerns about your dental health.
Oral bacteria produce plaque, which is a sticky material. It coats teeth and has the potential to solidify into tartar, an impermeable substance that irritates gum tissue and breeds illness. Gum swelling, redness, and bleeding are symptoms of gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease. The tissues that link the gums to the teeth are destroyed by bacteria. Your gums will pull away from your teeth as the illness worsens and pockets of infection will develop.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about periodontics or to schedule an oral health consultation with one of our dentists.

Recognizing And Treating Gum Disease
Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, affects a large number of people without their knowledge. Gums that are red, swollen, and bleeding are the early symptoms of gum disease. You may also feel persistent foul breath, receding gums, dental sensitivity, pain while biting, and loose teeth as the infection deepens and spreads into your gums. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to the loss of bone and eventually tooth loss. Gum disease can have a negative impact on your general health and increase your risk of respiratory problems, heart disease, diabetes, and other serious disorders.
Our dentists can help you control and repair the effects of periodontal disease. In the early stages, gum disease treatment may be fairly simple. In later stages, treatments become more involved. Here are some of the periodontal treatments we offer:
- Root planing and scaling
- Soft tissue grafting
- Bone grafting
What To Expect At Your Periodontal Appointment
During your first appointment, one of our specialists will thoroughly evaluate the condition of your gum health. The doctor will check the health of your gums and check for any bone loss or other potential complications. Following the assessment, the doctor will collaborate with you to put treatments into action that will get rid of bacteria and encourage tissue regeneration. The sooner we act, the simpler the healing process will be.
Scaling and root planing, a deep cleaning technique used by our dentists, can effectively manage mild instances. Our dentists do soft tissue grafts in areas where there has been severe tissue loss to maintain your teeth’s correct support. Some patients will be candidates for a laser gum treatment called LANAP, a non-surgical approach to treating advanced cases of gum disease. In cases where teeth have been lost or need to be extracted, we can replace them with functional and attractive dental implants.
