Understanding Gum Disease

Dr. Byars showing a patient their dental x-raysGum disease is a broad term encompassing bacterial buildup and inflammation along the gum line. Poor oral care practices, missed preventive care appointments, genetics, advanced age, or chronic illnesses can contribute to the development of gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease may elevate the risk of various conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and premature or low-weight births.

What are the Symptoms of Gum Disease?

Gum disease may not always manifest apparent symptoms in its early stages, underscoring the importance of regular dental checkups at Smile 360. If you experience one or more of the following symptoms, it's time to contact Dr. Byars to schedule a periodontal check-up:

  • Loose teeth
  • Tooth and mouth pain
  • Receding, swollen, and painful gums
  • Bleeding during brushing and flossing
  • Mouth sores
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • A shift in your bite

While gum disease can progress into a severe condition if untreated, the team at Smile 360 Family & Implant Dentistry offers the expertise, technology, and tools to restore your gums to a healthy state. The following periodontal treatments are available:

Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)

Scaling and root planing (SRP) represent among the most common procedures for addressing gingivitis. This process involves a deep cleaning below the gum line and smoothing the tooth's surface. By removing plaque, bacteria, and acid buildup causing gum inflammation, SRP facilitates the restoration and promotion of healthier teeth, gums, and overall oral health, preventing all stages of gum disease.
