Dr. Peter Ciampi and Associates strive to give every patient at Spring Lake Dental Care a smile that instills confidence and pride, and advanced periodontal care can go a long way to ensuring a healthy foundation for that smile. Periodontal disease (gum disease) occurs when plaque and harmful bacteria is allowed to build up inside the gums. While the preliminary symptoms of periodontal disease are relatively mild, the condition can worsen when left untreated. At first, patients with periodontal disease will likely experience swollen, red gums that are sensitive and especially prone to bleeding. If the condition is allowed to progress, patients can experience more severe consequences, including loose teeth, complete tooth loss, and even an increased risk for serious health conditions such as heart disease or stroke.
When periodontal disease is detected in its earlier stages, Dr. Ciampi and Associates can treat the condition with procedures designed to reverse some of the damage and restore your gums to a healthy state. Patients with more advanced stages of the disease can also benefit from restorative procedures that can address tooth problems that have already occurred due to gum disease.
Maintaining a daily oral hygiene routine (twice-daily brushing and flossing) and scheduling regular dental examinations and cleanings are essential to keep your teeth and gums healthy as well as beautiful. Regular examinations allow Dr. Ciampi and Associates to detect dental problems in their earliest stages for prompt treatment, and can help prevent conditions such as periodontal disease. With good oral health habits, you can enjoy healthy teeth and gums for years to come!
