One of the most common dental issues affecting adults today is the development of periodontal disease. Here at the Maryland Center for Periodontics and Dental Implants, our experts in periodontal disease treatment in Baltimore can help you prevent, diagnose, and treat periodontal disease depending on your individual needs. Firstly, it is helpful to get a basic understanding of periodontal disease and what developing periodontal disease means for your oral health over time. Periodontal disease is an inflammation and eventual infection of the gums. The culprits responsible are the various forms of bacteria present within your mouth each day. Some basic signs of periodontal disease
that you should look out for include: increased redness of the gums, tenderness in the gums, pain in the gums and surrounding areas, and bleeding from the gums when brushing and flossing. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment for periodontal disease treatment in Baltimore here at our facility right away.
During your initial appointment with one of our experts, we will perform a full examination of your teeth and gums, and discuss your symptoms with you in order to perform an in-depth evaluation of your individual case of periodontal disease. We will then be able to recommend a treatment plan for you based on the extent and severity of your symptoms. The first course of action typically involves a deep periodontal cleaning
, designed to remove the stubborn bacteria that are causing you trouble. We may recommend several cleanings over time in order to keep your symptoms at bay. If you have a more severe case, where pockets have formed in the gums, surgical methods may be called for in order to better treat your symptoms. We can give you more personalized recommendations during your next visit with us.
