Gum Disease Treatment

To maintain a healthy smile, patients must maintain healthy gums. Dr. Calian and the Smile Design Dental Spa team provide a full range of periodontal services and gum disease treatments to keep your smile beautiful and healthy.

What Causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease is caused by bacterial plaque and tartar accumulating up on the surfaces of your teeth, above and below the gum line. The buildup is the result of poor dental hygiene. However, while poor at-home care is the primary cause of gum disease, other health or lifestyle factors may also increase your risk of developing the condition. These factors can include family history, stress, smoking, tobacco use, certain medications, diabetes, or hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, or menopause.

If left untreated, gum disease has been linked to increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, pneumonia, and osteoporosis. It can also cause infections in your jawbones, leading to loosened teeth and permanent tooth loss. Early detection and treatment are critical to maintaining overall oral and physical well-being. Symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen, or puffy gums
  • Tender gums
  • Bleeding when brushing and flossing
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gum tissue
  • Loose or shifting teeth

If you experience one or more of these symptoms, call Smile Design Dental Spa. Our skilled dental professionals will perform a thorough examination and design a treatment plan that’s right for you.

How Can I Prevent Gum Disease?

Prevention is the best treatment of all. The key preventing gum disease is practicing excellent at-home oral hygiene, including brushing twice and flossing daily. Be sure to schedule regular cleanings with your trusted Mount Kisco dentist. Cleanings every six months can prevent the development of plaque and tartar, keeping your smile healthy and reducing your risk of developing gum disease.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

Our dentist will perform a scaling and root planing procedure to remove the built-up plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. If you have advanced gum disease, we will recommend treatment based on the extent of your condition and the degree of restoration required. Depending on your needs, we offer the following services:

  • Gingivectomy
  • Pocket Reduction
  • Osseous Surgery
  • Ridge Preservation
  • Sinus Lift
  • Bone Grafting
