Signs You Need Periodontal Care

Routine exams at our Dearborn practice are the best way to know if you need periodontal care. However, you should look out for some common signs that may indicate a periodontal issue:

Gum Inflammation

Swelling or puffing of the gum tissues is a telltale sign of periodontal disease. Gums may also appear dark and red as opposed to pink.

Sensitive Gums

Plaque and bacteria can irritate the gums, making them more sensitive to pressure and bleed easily.

Loose Teeth

Later stages of periodontal disease can cause teeth to feel loose or fall out as a result of periodontal pockets leading the gum tissue to detach from your teeth.

Persistent Bad Breath

Chronic bad breath can signify gum disease. If left untreated, the infection will damage the gum tissues and underlying structures.

If you experience symptoms of gum disease, turn to our team to learn more about a customized treatment plan developed by a dentist or periodontist.

Addressing Gum Disease at Our Dearborn, MI, Practice

When it comes to treating gum disease, prevention is our first course of action. During biannual cleanings, your hygienist can eliminate the bacteria that cause periodontitis. However, we can treat gum disease at any stage. To address gingivitis, a routine cleaning will usually be sufficient.
Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling and Root Planing

Also known as a deep cleaning, scaling and root planing is designed to eliminate pockets of bacteria from within your gums.

Using an ultrasonic scaler, your practitioner will destroy these microbes and remove rough patches on your tooth roots. Because bacteria easily become trapped in these areas, scaling and root planing can help prevent flare-ups.

Compared to manual treatment methods, your deep cleaning with our advanced technology will be very efficient and will involve minimal risk. 

Sinus Lift

Sinus Lift

If you’ve lost bone in either the top or bottom of your jaw due to periodontal disease, there may not be enough left to place dental implants. A sinus lift works to correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and filling the space with grafting material.

Over the course of a few months, the jawbone will fuse with this material to create a sturdy base for implants.

Exploring the Cost of Periodontal Care

Periodontal issues that go on untreated can lead to costlier problems down the line. Dental insurance will typically cover at least part of your treatments.

To make dental care as accessible as possible, we accept financing options — including CareCredit® and LendingClub — to help keep out-of-pocket expenses manageable. If you have not visited us before, you can take advantage of our new patient special by receiving an exam and X-rays for $29.
