Gum disease is a common term for periodontal disease. If left unchecked or untreated, gum disease can lead to serious oral health problems. Luckily, Dr. Rex Bullock is talented and skilled when it comes to offering advice and treatments for gum disease that can restore you back to positive oral health.
Gum disease is developed from plaque or bacteria that infect your gums. As the infection grows your gums can begin to bleed, swell, pull away from your teeth, give consistent bad breath, and will also lead to bone loss, tooth loss and gum tissue recession. That is why having your oral health checked at least twice a year is essential to avoid this condition and other oral health complications for taking hold.
Depending on the severity of the condition for your unique smile, your treatment options may vary. Some treatments include better oral health hygiene at home with brushing and flossing. Other treatments include antibiotics, root planning, and even gum surgery. No matter what the condition of your smile, our team of professionals are happy to help restore your oral health.
