Gingivitis & Gum Disease

Answers for gum disease or periodontal disease in Bakersfield are right here at Salin Dentistry. For gentle removing of plaque and tarter build-up and treatment of painful gums, call today.

Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria living in dental plaque that causes an infection in the crevices between your gums and teeth. It can be painless or can cause a great deal of discomfort. This disease begins with gingivitis (which is reversible). It is an inflammation of your gums, which often causes irritation and bleeding. As the disease progresses, the bacteria spreads deeper into the crevices or pockets between your gums and your teeth. Left untreated, it will eventually lead to the destruction of the bone anchoring your teeth and may cause a shifting of your teeth or tooth loss. When you have circumstances that affect the health of your gum area, it will be necessary to have gingivitis treatment to maintain the health of your teeth, gums and jawbone. Schedule an appointment with our excellent dentists for your gingivitis treatment today.

Periodontal disease begins with plaque buildup on your teeth and then develops into an infection that damages your gums. By the age of 45, more than 80% of all Americans have been affected by this disease. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Remember, dentistry is only expensive if neglected. Symptoms may vary greatly between individuals regarding gum disease. Stopping the progression of this disease can save you time, discomfort, and expense. Some symptoms may include: canker sores, red inflamed or bleeding gums, tender gums, bleeding while brushing or flossing, receding gums, loose or separating teeth, presence of pus between gums and tooth, chronic halitosis, or lesions. Regular daily brushing and flossing with semiannual prophy (dental cleanings from a hygienist) or periodontal maintenance will greatly reduce the risk of periodontal disease. If you suspect any problems, call immediately to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced and gentle dentists.

Quality care for gingivitis in Bakersfield begins with prevention at Salin Dentistry where you will receive excellent care and service

"Periodontal disease causes adults over the age of 35 to loose more teeth than tooth decay (or cavities). At least three out of four adults are affected by gum disease some time in their life. The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is by daily brushing and flossing and, of course, coming in for regular six month professional examinations and cleanings. Unfortunately, even with the utmost care and diligence based on good oral hygiene and professional dental exams, an adult can develop some form of gingivitis or periodontal disease. Once the disease starts, professional help will be necessary to prevent the spread of the disease. In addition to your daily regiment, other factors that can negatively affect the health of your gums include: clenching and grinding teeth, stress, tobacco usage, and some medications or poor nutrition."
