Get Comfortable Treatment For Your Gums

We treat gum disease with a standard method called scaling and root planing. You can think of it as a deep cleaning for your gums. We’ll use special tools to get beneath the gumline and clear out harmful pockets of bacteria between your teeth roots and gums. Then we’ll smooth out rough patches on the roots where bacteria like to cling.

Although nearly half of Americans will have some form of gum disease, it is entirely preventable in most cases. Good dental hygiene habits like flossing daily and brushing your teeth twice a day, and seeing your dentist regularly, can keep your gums disease-free.

Know the Signs of Gum Disease

Our mouths are home to many different types of bacteria. Bad bacteria can get beneath your gumline and cause inflammation and infection. Over time, the infection disturbs the bone beneath your gums, and eventually your teeth can become loose or even fall out.

We already mentioned the most common signs of gum disease – bleeding, sore, or tender gums – but you might also experience:

  • Swollen gums
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Teeth or partial dentures that feel loose
  • Bite changes
  • Nothing at all

Nothing at all? Yes. Nothing at all. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, frequently goes undetected until it becomes severe. To catch it early, be sure to see Dr. Weddell or Dr. Harms at least twice a year for your teeth cleanings and dental exams.

Don’t let your gums be the reason you lose your teeth. Call Weddell Dental today at 952-679-1365 to schedule an appointment for Bloomington gum disease treatment.
