How is gum disease treated?

Treatment of gum disease in Foothill Ranch, CA, varies based on your level of periodontitis. If you have gum disease, you can count on a customized treatment schedule that addresses your needs specifically. There is no one-size-fits-all approach.

However, your dentist will explain the various treatments and goals, ensuring that you understand our approach and objectives. Our focus is always restoring you to better oral health, avoiding complications, and preserving your smile.

Gum Disease Treatments in Foothill Ranch, CA

Gum disease is advanced gingivitis. While we can eradicate gingivitis, gum disease is merely treatable. However, with diligence, we can lower your risks of complications.

Treatments for gum disease may include:

  • A prescribed at-home routine
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Deep teeth cleaning schedule
  • Periodontal cleaning follow-ups

Studies link untreated gum disease to systemic health complications and specific types of dementia. Because of the potentially severe consequences, we encourage you to seek treatment and follow your dentist’s protocols.

If you do not have gum disease, we want to keep it that way through prevention; this means excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits for checkups and teeth cleanings in Foothill Ranch.
