Periodontics Creating Beautiful Smiles

Roseburg Periodontics 

Advanced Gum Treatments

It is important to remember that caring for your oral health does not merely involve your teeth, but also your gums as well. If your gums are suffering from bacterial infections like periodontal diseases, you will need professional treatment and therapy to protect them. Otherwise, the issues that are plaguing your gums can quickly spread to the supportive jawline bone, which itself can cause the loss of teeth if the disease gets bad enough.

What is Periodontal Disease?

During the initial stages of gum disease also known as gingivitis, is the easiest phase to treat and can usually be prevented by routine brushing, flossing, and regularly seeing the dentist. However, if left untreated, the next stage is Periodontitis. Periodontitis is the stage where the gums around the affected area begin to pull from the teeth and create infected pockets.

This will ultimately lead to severe bone loss in the jaw and loose teeth due to weakened ligaments. The next stage is advanced periodontitis, where the pockets can grow even deeper and create full-formed pus inside.

Periodontal disease is most caused by:

  • Smoking tobacco
  • Bad hygiene habits
  • Taking harmful medications
  • Diabetes
  • Genetics
