Periodontal Disease San Clemente

Gum Disease Can Be Treated


Periodontal disease is a progressive ailment and ignoring the symptoms may result in the eventual loss of teeth.

Wow. Pretty scary, right?  Everyone takes their teeth for granted... that is until something comes along to threaten them.  Folks typically think that only older people can lose teeth, but any adult whose lifestyle reflects any of the following activities are at risk for periodontal disease:

So what to do?  Well, if you're in the San Clemente area, the smart thing is to call and make an appointment with Dr. Eric Johnson.  He is a highly respected, thoroughly professional dentist who just happens to have the answers and a treatment regimen to combat periodontal disease.

Certainly any dentist can treat such an affliction, but do you want "just any dentist" in your mouth?  Probably not!  That's why we urge you to contact Dr. Johnson in San Clemente.  If you take a few minutes to read just a few of the many patient testimonials that Dr. Johnson's patients routinely post, you will see that he is not "just any dentist", but one who cares deeply about the overall health of each and every one of his patients.

And here is another interesting fact about dental health: Uncontrolled periodontal disease can negatively impact your overall health by contributing to problems including heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer and other degenerative disease that can be life threatening.  While there is no treatment that can fully alleviate periodontal disease, it is important to your overall health to control it.  Also critical to be aware that home care is recommended for immediate and long term control of your condition and that the doctor or dental hygienist can NOT control it by themselves.

Symptoms

  • Bleeding sites
    - Healthy gums don't bleed
  • Pockets >3mm
    - Healthy pockets are1-3mm
  • Recession sites
    - Healthy means no recession
  • Furcation sites
    - Healthy means no furcations

Diagnosis

  • Gingivitis
  • Early Periodontitis
  • Moderate Periodontitis
  • Advanced Periodontitis
 

THIS CONDITION REQUIRES:
Gingivitis Therapy — Treats surface infection of the gum that has not affected the bone.  Typically requires two appointments and use of medicated rinse.

Active Periodontal Therapy — Non-surgical deep treatment of diseased gum and tooth.  Typically requires several appointments with numbing as well as additional specialized instruments like a dental laser and/or antibiotics.  This treatment is always followed by Supportive Periodontal Therapy in 6 weeks and then every 90 days.

Supportive Periodontal Therapy — Periodontal disease is not reversible.  So, it requires specialized maintenance every 90 days to continually remove plaque and bacteria from severely affected areas.  This type of treatment as well as the appropriate frequency is critical to immediate and long term control of your periodontal disease.
