  • What are the signs of periodontal disease or gum disease?

    The signs of periodontal disease, or gum disease, include red, swollen, or tender gums, bleeding while brushing or flossing, persistent bad breath, receding gums, loose or shifting teeth, and the formation of deep pockets between the teeth and gums. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important to seek professional dental care promptly to prevent further complications.

  • What causes gum disease?

    Gum disease is primarily caused by the buildup of plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on the teeth. Poor oral hygiene, smoking, hormonal changes, certain medications, and underlying health conditions like diabetes can also contribute to the development and progression of gum disease. Regular dental check-ups and maintaining good oral hygiene practices are essential to preventing gum disease.

  • How is periodontal disease or gum disease treated?

    Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is treated using a combination of advanced techniques tailored to the severity of the condition. Initial stages may be managed with professional cleanings and improved oral hygiene practices. For more advanced cases, treatments such as scaling and root planing, laser therapy, and the use of antibiotics may be employed to remove plaque and tartar, reduce bacteria, and promote healing of the gum tissue. In severe instances, surgical interventions like flap surgery or grafts might be necessary to restore and regenerate healthy gum and bone tissue. Our team at Modern Dentistry of Peoria will create a personalized treatment plan to effectively combat and manage your gum disease.

  • How do I know if I have gum disease?

    You may have gum disease if you experience symptoms such as red, swollen, or bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, or loose teeth. Regular dental check-ups are essential for early detection and diagnosis, so it’s important to consult with our team at Modern Dentistry of Peoria if you notice any of these signs.

  • What is gum recession?

    Gum recession is a condition in which the gum tissue surrounding the teeth pulls back or wears away, exposing more of the tooth or its root. If left untreated, this can lead to increased sensitivity, a higher risk of decay, and potential tooth loss.
