At Dental Associates, you can meet with a dentist who can treat you for an abscess gum, periodontal disease and more. We will treat your abscess gum or gum disease with the most advanced periodontal disease therapy available today.
Our endodontist will provide you with a thorough oral exam in order to diagnosis the severity of your gum disease or abscess gum. An abscess gum is fairly easy to diagnose as it often produces a lump or bump on the gums. Depending on the severity of the case, your dental team may recommend that you drain the abscess to remove the infection.
If your gums are irritated or receding, but you are not suffering from an abscess gum, you may have gum disease. Gingivitis, the mildest form of gum disease, often manifests with red, swollen gums. Often, the gums tend to easily bleed, as well. You may not even be aware that you are suffering from gingivitis, as this form of gum disease often presents with little to no discomfort. However, a Dental Associates endodontist can easily spot gingivitis and educate you on proper oral hygiene techniques in order to slow or stop the progression of the disease.
For those with periodontitis, your endodontist will typically recommend a more aggressive periodontal disease therapy. Periodontitis can be severe, depending on how progressed the disease is. Type of periodontitis include:
- Chronic Periodontitis
- Aggressive Periodontitis
- Necrotizing Periodontal Disease
Our endodontist will be able to quickly diagnose periodontal disease. Symptoms include bad breath, tender gums, swollen gums, sensitive teeth, painful chewing, loose teeth and more.
Depending on the severity of your individual case, your endodontist may recommend deep cleaning treatments that consist of scaling and root planing. While the treatment sounds serious, it is a quick and easy procedure that involves your endodontist removing plaque by scraping tartar from above and below the gum line. Immediately following this scaling procedure, you will undergo a brief root planing treatment, which involves removing spots on the tooth root to prevent bacteria build-up.
