Man Smiling After Receiving Gum Disease Treatment from Jefferson Dental Care GA

Even while practicing oral hygiene every day, new patients often come to their first visit to Jefferson Dental Care suffering from gum disease. The condition is common, and although it typically arises from poor oral health care, there are several potential causes outside of not brushing and flossing correctly. General dental treatment and education are key factors in preventing further occurrences of gum disease, which is why we offer a comprehensive treatment plan for all patients.

The level of treatment that you will need from Jefferson Dental Care will depend on the severity of the condition. In the early stage of gum disease, our team will provide you with a thorough cleaning and provide treatment options that you can continue at home. We will also discuss proper oral hygiene practices that will help prevent further infection. For more complex incidences of gum disease, your dentist will discuss suitable treatment during your appointment.

Symptoms and Causes of Periodontal Disease

The most obvious signs of gum disease include bleeding, swollen or painful gums. At Jefferson Dental Care, we also recommend checking for discolored or receding gums. The condition can arise from poor oral hygiene, food trapped in the recesses of the gums or teeth, smoking or the consumption of certain drinks such as alcohol, coffee or tea. Getting to the root cause of gum disease is an important part of effective treatment.

Treatment for gum disease is much more effective when a comprehensive exam is carried out at our Jefferson Dental Care office. We can identify any contributing factors and provide a more robust treatment plan that directly addresses the specific needs of each patient.

If you are concerned that you are suffering from gum disease, contact Jefferson Dental Care to schedule your next comprehensive exam. The sooner the condition is detected, the easier it is to treat.
