Treating Bleeding Gums in Fullerton, CA
Most patients don’t realize they have gum disease until they visit a trusted dentist. If you are experiencing symptoms of gums disease, it is important to schedule a visit. If gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss which will require additional treatment. Our goal is to stop the progression of gum disease before it compromised the integrity of your teeth and gums.Depending on the stage or severity of gum disease, Dr. Kush Patel and Krutav Patel may suggest one or more of these treatments to treat your smile.
- Scaling and root planing: Removes plaque and tartar buildup below and above the gum line. This treatment may need to be repeated to effectively eliminate gum disease.
- Antibacterial rinses: This treatment is usually effective for patients with early signs of gum disease (gingivitis). Antibacterial rinses can effectively remove harmful bacteria from the mouth, teeth, and gums.
- Laser dentistry: Laser dentistry can remove infected tissue and promote natural healing in the gums.
- Gum surgery: In an advanced stage of gum disease(periodontitis), we may need to coordinate care with an experienced periodontist. Gum surgery may need to restore the health of your gums.
