Norcross gum pain sufferers can find relief in Smart Family Dental Care's treatment options.
NORCROSS, GA, September 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Our mouths provide a hospitable environment for bacteria; however, sometimes this bacteria cause issues. For one, bacteria produce plaque, a sticky deposit that adheres to teeth. If plaque isn't removed tartar starts to form, which normal brushing can't combat. While we often concern ourselves with the health of our teeth, the importance of the gums is often ignored. Periodontal disease, or periodontitis, is a chronic inflammatory disease affecting the gum tissue. If you're experiencing gum pain in Norcross or dealing with gum disease, Smart Family Dental Care can provide proper treatments, including gum surgery in Norcross, to maintain happy, healthy gums.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 47.2% of Americans have periodontitis, or gum disease. That means, about 64.7 million adults 30 years or older are battling gum disease, and incidence rates increase to approximately 70 percent for those 65 years and older.
"Gum disease is easily avoidable; however, if gum disease develops and isn't treated, it can lead to tooth loss and bone damage," says Dr. Orson Baek, who performs gum surgery in Norcross. "Furthermore, it's associated with other serious diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Smoking is actually one of the most influential risk factors associated with gum disease. It also makes gum disease treatment less effective."
Gum disease in Norcross has various treatments, depending on the severity of the condition. If the problem is mild, a deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planning, is used to remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. However, if the gum disease has progressed substantially, surgery may be necessary. Smart Family Dental Care has top-of-the-line dental technology to provide Norcross gum pain sufferers with the best gum disease solutions, including surgery.
"If inflammation remains after deep cleaning or medication, we recommend surgery as an alternative to treating certain gum disease cases," says Dr. Baek. "The surgery is common and easy. It simply involves lifting the gums to remove remaining tartar."
After tartar is removed, the gums are stitched up. As the gums heal, they will heal more tightly around the teeth. If there is bone degradation present, bone and tissue grafts may also be an option. "In this case, synthetic bone replaces the bone loss, which will promote healthier bone growth," says Dr. Baek. "The same applies if gum tissue is lost; a synthetic or real tissue graft will replace areas where tissue has depleted."
