Periodontics

Often taken for granted, the monotonous task of brushing and flossing our teeth daily has never been more important in order to avoid gum disease and the risks gum disease place on our overall health. It has been estimated that 75% of Americans have some form of gum disease, which has been linked to serious health complications and causes various dental problems that are often avoidable (ADA website).

 

Signs of Gum Disease Include:

  • Red, bleeding, and/or swollen gums
  • Bad breath
  • Mobility of the teeth
  • Tooth sensitivity caused by receding gums
  • Abscessed teeth
  • Tooth loss

 

Treatments



Depending on the type of gum disease, some of the available treatment options are:

 

  • Removal of plaque and calculus by way of scaling 
  • Medications such as a mouth rinse prescribed by Dr. Cozzi to help kill the bacteria in your mouth
  •  Surgery may be necessary in more severe cases in order to stop, halt, or minimize the progression of periodontal disease or replace bone that has been lost from the disease.
