Preserve Your Smile with Gum Disease Treatment

Treatment of Gum Disease in Boston MA Area

Your gums help support your teeth and form a protective barrier against harmful bacteria and infection. Gum disease can threaten that protection by destroying gum tissue and causing your gums to recede. This leaves your tooth roots and bones exposed to bacterial infection. Over time, this infection will weaken bone support in your teeth, resulting in loose teeth and, eventually, tooth loss. Fortunately, gum disease can be treated, and its effects reversed if caught early enough. Early treatment of gum disease at Anjum A. Ansari DMD, General & Cosmetic Dentistry by Anjum A. Ansari DMD in Boston, Massachusetts, can help preserve your smile.

Signs of Gingivitis (Early Gum Disease) 

Knowing the symptoms of gingivitis can alert you to the dangers of your condition. In its early stages, gum disease can cause:

  • Bleeding gums after brushing or flossing 
  • Red, swollen or tender gums 
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Chronic bad breath

Left unchecked, your condition can worsen, leading to receding gums, tooth pain, and tooth loss. Through routine dental checkups, Anjum A. Ansari DMD can detect signs of gum trouble early, so we can treat gum disease without delay to restore your oral health. 

Early Gum Disease Treatment

Professional cleaning is the best treatment for early gum disease. Your Boston, Massachusetts dentist will cleanse your teeth of plaque and tartar build-up, particularly in your back teeth and other areas where brushing is difficult. Eliminating plaque, tartar and harmful bacteria gives your gums a chance to heal. 

Depending on the severity of your condition, you may need deep cleaning in the form of scaling and root planing. This removes plaque and tartar from both above and below your gum line and closes pockets of bacteria that have formed around your teeth. Eliminating these pockets enables your gums to form a tight seal around your teeth once again.
