Gum Care and Disease Prevention in University Place, WA

periodontal_care.jpgAs part of our preventive dentistry services, we offer periodontal (gum) care to keep you healthy and safe from periodontal (gum) disease. This degenerative disease is caused by an accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth. Bacteria from the calculus and plaque begin to destroy the gums, bone, and teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can increase your risk for pregnancy complications, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and more. Some of the periodontal services that we provide to treat or prevent periodontal disease include:

  • Crown lengthening
  • Gingival grafts
  • Scaling and root planing (deep cleanings)

Other treatments may also be recommended depending on the stage of periodontal disease. The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to consistently practice good oral hygiene at home and to visit the dentist at least once every six months for your professional cleanings and exam. If it has been over six months since your last visit to the dentist, or if you notice gums that are red, swollen, or bleeding, call Puget Sound Dental Clinic in University Place today to receive the care you need.
