Desoto Dental Practice offers comprehensive gum disease treatment in Canoga Park for you and your family so that you can have a beautiful, bright and healthy smile.
Many people do not know they have gum disease. This is because gum disease is usually painless. Gum disease refers to inflammation of the gum line and it’s caused by plaque- the sticky colorless film of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth.
Daily brushing and flossing of teeth remove plaque from teeth. If plaque is not removed, it will accumulate and form tartar. Only professional dental cleaning can remove tartar from your teeth.
Gum disease develops from the plaque that turns into tartar when not removed through daily brushing and flossing. Gum disease may progress to affect the bones that support your teeth leading to gingivitis, periodontitis and advanced periodontitis.
The key to preventing gum disease is practicing proper brushing and flossing of teeth. Use antibacterial toothpaste or mouth rinse to kill bacteria and reduce the amount of plaque on your teeth.
Top-rated dentists, Dr. Edalat and Dr. Kalai provide world-class treatment for gum disease and expert care in Canoga Park.
The initial treatment for gum disease involves professional cleaning by dental hygienist done to remove plaque or tartar that has accumulated on your teeth. By coming for regular dental checkups (twice a year) your gum disease can be treated at an early stage to prevent it from becoming more serious.
If your gum disease is more advanced, our dentists will perform scaling and root planning to treat the infected periodontal pockets and gums. The dental hygienist uses an ultrasonic scaling device to remove plaque and tartar from the gum line along with scaling the tooth and root surfaces to get rid of the disease.
In some cases, the dentist may perform laser treatment to remove tartar deposits or conduct gingival flap surgery to reduce periodontal pockets and restore lost bone.
If you suspect you have gum disease, come to DeSoto Dental Practice in Canoga Park for thorough examination and treatment. A regular oral evaluation by our Canoga Park dentist will allow them to spot the early signs of gum disease so it can be treated before it becomes much of an issue.
