Get Healthy Gums Back With a Deep Cleaning

Periodontal disease is not just an inconvenience. It is a leading cause of tooth loss. Gum infections have also been connected to heart disease, diabetes complications, and premature births. To address this problem, we often start with a two-step process:

  • Scaling – This deep cleaning removes plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, including the parts that are below your gumline.
  • Root Planing – With the tartar out of the way, we smooth the surface of your roots. This makes it more difficult for bacteria to collect. It allows your gums and teeth to reattach easier, too.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of all Americans have some form of gum disease. The good news is, it is often preventable with daily brushing and flossing and regular professional cleanings and exams.

Know Your Periodontal Symptoms

When harmful bacteria get beneath your gumline, they can cause inflammation and infection. This results in symptoms like:

  • Red and swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Bite changes
  • Loose teeth

When you notice any of those things, contact our general dental office. Don’t let your gums be the cause of tooth loss. Call Weddell Dental today at 952-679-1365 to schedule an appointment for Bloomington gum disease treatment. Or schedule online.

Common Questions About Gum Disease Treatment

What is gum disease treatment?

Gum disease treatment is designed to rid your mouth of built-up tartar, plaque, and bacteria that can wreak havoc on your gums. We’ll first use special instruments to clean around and below your gumline where bacteria have collected. Then we’ll smooth your teeth roots to make it harder for bacteria to grow there. This treatment may need to be repeated every few months for best results.

Is gum disease treatment painful?

Dr. Weddell and your hygienist will make sure that your gum disease treatment is as comfortable as possible. Before we begin any work, we’ll use a local anesthetic to completely numb the area we’re working on, and you can request light sedation or oral medication if desired. That way you’re assured of a pleasant treatment. In addition, you can ask any questions you want about your treatment, and we’ll answer them fully so you have all the information you need.

What are gum disease symptoms?

In its early stages, there are often no noticeable symptoms of gum disease. That’s why it’s important to visit us every six months for a checkup. As gum disease progresses, you may experience red and puffy gums, tenderness or pain, bleeding gums, bad breath, or loose teeth. Left untreated, gum disease can even cause you to lose your teeth.
