Periodontal Gum Therapy
Keeping your smile in its best condition can help you live longer! Strong connections have been made between oral health and total body health, known as the oral-systemic connection. At Crisafulli Dental, we understand that link and offer Bothell periodontal treatment to stop gum disease before it has a chance to permanently damage your gums, teeth, bone structure, and overall health.
Periodontal Disease is Serious Business!
It has been estimated more than 75% of American adults have some form of gum disease. In its more aggressive stages, gum disease turns into a more severe condition called periodontitis. Gum disease and periodontitis have been shown to be linked to the following health conditions:
- Coronary artery disease
- Respiratory problems
- Diabetic complications
- Low birth weight babies
- Deterioration of the jaw bone
- Tooth loss
If we discover signs of periodontitis our in-house periodontist, Dr. Holler, will discuss your treatment options and set up a recall program aimed to control your condition.
Periodontal disease is often treated with a process known as ‘scaling and root planing.’ This procedure involves a deep cleaning that eliminates the bacteria in the gum pockets around your teeth.
If you suspect you may have gum disease, it’s imperative you seek treatment as soon as possible! Contact Crisafulli Dental to schedule an evaluation with our Bothell area periodontal professional.
Want to avoid periodontal disease? Great oral hygiene is crucial. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth twice a day and to attend your regular cleaning appointments. If you have any questions about gum disease, feel free to call us anytime.
Need Tissue Recontouring?
If you have a cosmetic issue with your gums, such as uneven gums, or a gumline that extends to make a tooth look too short compared to other teeth, or if you have other health related gum issues, we provide tissue recontouring surgery to help improve the appearance of your gums and to help keep them healthy. The dental education videos below provide an excellent resource for understanding different gum treatment options available.
