It’s a given that we lose our teeth as we grow old. But with good oral hygiene habits like brushing your teeth, flossing, and visiting your dentist for dental cleanings, you can retain all your teeth even in your golden years. These habits maintain your teeth and the structures surrounding them: the gums and the tooth-supporting bone.
Unfortunately, it only takes a little slip-up in your oral hygiene for gum disease to occur. And given the sneaky nature of this disease, you may realize its detrimental effects when it’s too late. Luckily, at Vivid Dental, we provide gentle yet effective gum disease treatment options to restore your oral health.
Gum disease starts with symptoms like bleeding and swollen gums. Regrettably, most people ignore these subtle signs without realizing that this stage eventually progresses to periodontitis, which is more severe and non-reversible.
At Vivid Dental, we offer both surgical and non-surgical periodontal treatments to save your teeth and gums. They include:
Because dental plaque is the main cause of gum disease, it’s essential to remove it daily by brushing and flossing. Of course, there are some areas in your mouth that your toothbrush can’t reach. For this reason, you should book an appointment with your dentist every six months for dental cleaning.
