Protect Your Gum Health to Save Your Smile

We mentioned a few ways that periodontal disease can affect your overall health. With that in mind, you should keep an eye out for these symptoms:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red, swollen gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Pimple-like bumps on your gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Changes in your bite

Any of these are good reasons to schedule a visit to our general dental office. While here, we can provide non-surgical treatment using a two-step process:

  • Scaling – This is done to remove tartar buildup from your teeth, including along your roots below the gumline.
  • Root Planing – Once your teeth are clean, we smooth the surface of the roots. This makes it easier for your gum tissue to reattach to your teeth.

If you are hesitant to get this care, it may be due to dental anxiety. We can help with that, too. Dental sedation can calm your mind and prevent pain during your procedure.

To follow up on your periodontal care, keep coming back to see us for regular dental cleanings and exams. This preventive care can keep your mouth healthy for years to come.

Let us help you protect your smile. Come to Shawn A. Walls, DDS for your gum disease treatment in Johns Creek, GA. New patients should call 678-797-7793 to make an appointment. Call 770-813-0079 if you are an existing patient.

Common Questions

What causes gum disease?

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria form a clear, sticky film called plaque that build ups around your gumline, leading to inflamed and infected gums. Left untreated, the infection causes your gums to separate from teeth, creating “pockets” where more bacteria accumulates. In advanced stages of gum disease, the infection spreads from your gums to the bone that supports your teeth. Your teeth will loosen and possibly fall out.

Can you cure gum disease at home?

No, you can’t cure gum disease at home – not even in its early stages. Gum disease is caused when bacteria-filled plaque and tartar build up in the area between your teeth and gums. This area can’t be reached with a toothbrush or floss. Using special equipment, your dental team removes all of the bacteria from this area and then smoothes your tooth roots to make it difficult for more bacteria to accumulate.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Your gum disease treatment at Shawn A. Walls, DDS will be as comfortable as possible. We’ll use a local anesthetic to numb your mouth so that you don’t feel a thing. Plus, you’ll have your choice of sedation options, ranging from mild laughing gas to an oral sedative that will help you relax so that you won’t experience the sights, sounds, or smells of your procedure.
