Gum Disease Treatment

Family and Cosmetic Dentistry

Gum disease is not only painful, but it can put your teeth and gums at risk. Our dentists are eager to help you find the treatment plan you need because gum disease is statistically associated with other diseases, such as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Dr. Merchant, Dr. Hilton, and Dr. Shahnubaryan are pleased to offer a variety of treatments for gum disease in Fontana, California, and we can help you find the right service for your needs. Call Southridge Dental Group today to learn more and to schedule your next appointment.

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition primarily caused by bacteria found in plaque. The bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissues, and when left untreated, can eventually cause the gums to pull away from the teeth. Untreated periodontal disease can result in bone loss, tooth loss, and gum tissue recession.

If your gums are swollen, red, or tender, or if your gums bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. Other common symptoms of gum disease include loose teeth, painful chewing, persistent bad breath, and receding gums that make your teeth appear longer than normal. Following an exam at our office, our doctor and team will be able to determine whether you suffer from periodontal disease.

The treatment for gum disease is based upon your specific dental needs. Depending on the severity of the condition, our doctor may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), or gum surgery. We strive to help you restore your oral health and halt the progress of the disease. For more information on periodontal treatment, we welcome you to call or visit our office soon. We look forward to caring for your smile!
