What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is a gum disease that stems from poor oral hygiene. In the early stages, periodontal disease is known as gingivitis. Gingivitis causes the gums to become swollen, red and can also cause potential bleeding. After gingivitis, periodontal disease is no longer reversible as the gums can begin to pull away from the tooth, bone loss can occur, and teeth can decay rapidly.
Common Signs of Periodontal Disease
- Red or Swollen Gums
- Chronic Bad Breath
- Loose Teeth
- Bleeding Gums
- Receding Gum Line
Can periodontal therapy help me?
There are a few periodontal treatments and procedures that can help your oral health. Full-mouth periodontal therapy is the most effective way to treat gum disease. Full mouth periodontal therapy allows us to provide every tooth gum disease treatment to ensure a deep clean. One way we do this is by scaling and root planning. Scaling and root planning allow us to remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gum line. This treatment can sometimes help encourage the gum to attach back to your teeth but is not guaranteed.
How much does periodontal therapy cost?
Periodontal therapy costs will vary depending on the severity of the periodontal disease and what periodontal treatments and procedures will work best for you. However, it’s important to get gum disease treatment if needed, as the inflammation can spread and cause issues to other parts of your body. At Vero Dental, we have a wide variety of payment options that range from cash and credit cards to dental insurance.
