gum therapy in murrieta caRestore Your Smile Back to Full Health

If you are suffering from periodontal disease, aka gum disease, then Madison Square Dentistry can help! Our dentist is highly experienced in providing gentle gum therapy in Murrieta, CA and can restore your smile back to full health. Potential treatments for gum disease can include gum therapy (also called scaling and root planing) and medication.

What Is Gum Therapy?

The objective of gum therapy is to eliminate the underlying cause of inflammation. By utilizing this gum treatment to remove dental plaque and hardened tartar (calculus), we give your gums the opportunity to heal.

Gum therapy includes two procedures – scaling and root planing. Periodontal scaling includes the removal of plaque, calculus, and stain from the crown and root surfaces of your teeth. Root planing, on the other hand, gets rid of the roughened cementum and surface dentin that is impregnated with calculus, microorganisms, and their toxins.

Scaling and root planing are often referred to as deep cleaning, and they can be performed using both ultrasonic instruments and hard instruments. After your root planing and scaling procedure, we may also prescribe medication to help treat any infection.

What Causes Gum Disease?

There are many causes of gum disease. Excessive sugar in the diet, poor brushing habits, inconsistent flossing, smoking, or piercings can all lead to deterioration of the gums. Sometimes, some mouths can simply be prone to gum disease even when you do everything else correctly. This can be due to certain ligaments being tighter, shorter, or looser than they should be in an ideal mouth.

As your gums deteriorate, this allows bad bacteria and food particles access to the roots of your teeth, causing even more damage. When not treated, gum disease can lead to numerous dental problems, including tooth loss. If caught early, however, your gum disease can be managed and eradicated before your teeth have a chance to suffer.

What Are the Signs of Gum Disease?

Gum disease is not always readily apparent during its very early stages, so the best way to know if you have it is to visit our Murrieta dentist for regular checkups twice a year. During your oral health exam, we can let you know if you have gum disease or are at risk of developing gum disease.

You should also call us for an immediate appointment if you notice any of the following signs of gum disease:

  • Gums bleeding when you brush your teeth
  • Red, tender, or swollen gums
  • Receding gums, aka shrinking gums around your teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • New spaces appearing between your teeth

"Dr. Do is amazing after having many dentist I have found Dr Do to be the most professional and honest. Over two years now and no cavity. I have never felt pushed to buy anything here. Even when I asked about teeth bleaching he did not push me at all to make a purchase. My wife goes here too and has needed dental work she got a second opinion which confirmed Dr Do assessment. Couldn't ask for more."
