Make Your Gums Healthy With Gum Disease Treatment in Searcy

Gum disease is an even greater threat to your smile than tooth decay. In fact, it’s the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. We check for signs of disease during every dental exam. If we find any, we’ll provide effective gum disease treatment in Searcy to get your gums looking and feeling good again.
Our treatment will:
  • End unpleasant symptoms like bad breath and bleeding gums
  • Prevent receding gums and tooth loss
  • Potentially lower your risk of conditions linked to gum disease, like diabetes and respiratory infections
  • Restore your gums’ healthy pink appearance
If your gums are bleeding or you’re experiencing other gum disease symptoms, call 501-203-0120. The threat of gum disease goes beyond your smile. Recent research links gum disease-causing bacteria to Alzheimer’s disease. The bacteria P. gingivalis, the same bacteria that causes gum disease, was found in 96% of Alzheimers patients studied, which indicates a clear relationship between oral health and the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers recommend that you see your dentist often and take care of gum infection as soon as it is identified.

Keep Your Gum Disease From Progressing

Gum disease is caused when bacteria collects between your teeth and gums, causing your gums to pull away from teeth. Bacteria creates infection. As your body fights the infection, it begins breaking down the tissue and bone that keeps your teeth in place. We use a two-part procedure called scaling and root planing to:
  • Remove bacteria from both above and below your gums
  • Smooth your tooth roots to make it tougher for bacteria to accumulate
The earlier we identify gum disease, the easier it is to treat. So it’s important to see us every six months for an exam. After treatment, we’ll likely recommend you see us a bit more frequently so we can ensure the disease doesn’t return.

Recognize Gum Disease Symptoms

Gums that bleed when you’re brushing your teeth, or at other times, are a common early indicator of gum disease. But there are other gum disease symptoms too. Call us ASAP if you are experiencing:
  • Puffy or swollen gums
  • Gums that look bright red, not pink
  • Tender or painful gums
  • New spaces showing between teeth or teeth that look longer than before
  • Bad breath that won’t go away
