Get Your Gums Back Into Great Shape
We monitor the health and appearance of your gums during your regular dental cleanings and exams. Our dental team is trained to spot gum issues in the early stages so we can provide ample treatment. It may be a matter of brushing too hard, or there could be an infection. If you need dental intervention, here’s what Perfect Smiles can do for you:
- Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment – Gum infections need to be treated as soon as they arise. If you’ve noticed bleeding or swollen gums, you might have gum disease. We use the process of scaling and root planing to clean the area beneath each tooth and manage the infection.
- Gum Grafting – This procedure allows us to cover exposed roots to make your teeth healthier for years to come. Grafting involves taking a small portion of soft tissue and securing it over the gums. We can often complete this procedure in one visit.
Lower Your Risk of Gum Recession
While Perfect Smiles has the solutions to correct your gum issues, we’d like to see you avoid dental problems. To maintain healthy and great-looking gums, you can follow these tips:
- Brush twice a day and floss regularly. Brush gently, not too hard.
- Don’t smoke, or quit smoking. This habit creates plaque buildup, which can cause gum disease and gum recession.
- Don’t miss out on regular dental cleanings. This is a great time for us to monitor your teeth and gums and provide early intervention.
