What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, also referred to as gum disease, is a common dental health issue that affects millions of people worldwide. It's an infection and inflammation of tissues that support and surround the teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss and jawbone deterioration. Gum disease treatments are more effective the earlier the disease is detected. As the disease advances, more thorough treatment is required.

At Sukut Dental, we focus on catching periodontal disease in its early stages. With excellent oral hygiene practices and regular dental checkups, you can prevent the progression of gum disease.

What Are the Symptoms of Periodontal Disease?

Different factors contribute to the development of gum disease, including age, genetics, diabetes, pregnancy, and tobacco use. It can be difficult to notice early signs of periodontal disease. The common symptoms associated with periodontal disease include:

  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
  • Bad breath
  • Sore and sensitive gums
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gum abscesses
  • Pain while brushing
  • Receding gum line
  • Loose teeth

At Sukut Dental, our Costa Mesa periodontist and team offer specialized treatment for all stages of periodontal disease. Whether you need a second opinion regarding your treatment or would like more information about gum disease, our team is here to help you.

Our Comprehensive Gum Disease Treatments in Costa Mesa

Our team offers various periodontal treatments for all levels of gum disease. Our team has the expertise and experience to offer you the relief you deserve, regardless of how long you have suffered from gum disease.

Our periodontist will gently examine your teeth and gums to formulate an optimal treatment plan. Our team will explain all your treatment options in detail and address any questions or concerns you may have. Some of the procedures you can expect from Sukut Dental include:

Scaling and Root Planing: Also called a deep cleaning, this is a two-phase periodontal procedure that removes plaque and bacteria beneath your gum line. With scaling, plaque and tartar are scraped from the tooth's surface and the pockets between gums and teeth. Planing involves smoothing the surface of the teeth to promote a secure bond with the gums, which lowers the risks of a new infection. Our hygienist will provide scaling and root planning to clean away these irritants for early gum disease infection. You will also be advised to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing every day and limiting risk factors like unhealthy eating habits, alcohol, and smoking.

Gingivectomy: Gingivectomy is a surgery that reshapes your gum tissues. This dental surgery is essential in cases where the gums have pulled away from your teeth and are exposing the roots to plaque, tartar, and bacteria. Our team may recommend a gingivectomy to help prevent periodontal disease from damaging the bone structure that supports your teeth.

Laser Treatment: Our periodontist can use laser therapy to treat advanced stages of gum disease. It effectively treats gum infection, cold sores, and canker sores. Periodontal therapy with lasers makes the treatment procedure straightforward and precise, and it also promotes faster healing. Laser treatment can be used to remove plaque, calculus, and bacteria and encourage the growth of new cells in the gums. When combined with scaling and root planing, laser treatment can restore your healthy gums and teeth and give you a rejuvenated smile.

Gum Grafting: Gum grafts help to address the effects of gum recession. During treatment, our periodontist will remove a small amount of tissue from the roof of the mouth and transfer it surgically to an area of your gums that require restoration. Gum grafts help improve the aesthetics and health of your smile by restoring your gum line.

Bone Grafts and Sinus Lifts: Our Costa Mesa periodontist can perform both bone grafts and sinus lifts. These procedures may be necessary if you need dental implant restoration. They strengthen the jawbone by adding new material after bone loss and enable your jaws to support the implants. A bone graft is a surgical procedure that involves the insertion of transplanted or synthetic bone. A sinus lift involves lifting the sinus membrane in the upper molar area and adding bone material ton increase the jawbone density. The bone will integrate with surrounding tissues and strengthen them over time.
