Periodontics in Kennewick

Keeping Your Gums & Bones Healthy & Strong

Periodontology is the subcategory of dentistry that deals with the supporting structures of a patient’s mouth, such as their mouth bones and gums. A periodontist works to ensure that a patient’s teeth are healthy, their gums are not diseased, and their bones are strong. Periodontal disease, also referred to as gum disease, affects millions of people and is one of the most prominent oral health issues in America.

About Gum Disease

If you neglect regular checkups to remove tartar and plaque from your mouth, they will both eventually accumulate to the point where you develop gingivitis. As the mildest form of gum disease, gingivitis causes the gums to bleed easily, swell, and become red and inflamed. Thankfully, the effects of gingivitis are reversible with good oral home care and professional treatment. If left alone, however, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, which is the advanced form of gum disease.

Periodontitis is a very serious condition that can lead to gum recession, bone loss, tooth decay, and other severe side effects. Also, it can negatively affect your overall health by causing extensive damage to your oral health. Our skilled dentists in Kennewick utilize a wide variety of effective treatment methods to take care of your teeth and eliminate all traces of gum disease. For example, we use scaling and root planing, deep pocket cleanings, laser treatments, and regenerative procedures for the benefit of our patients.

These are several signs that you may have gum disease:

  • Receding gums or longer appearing teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Painful chewing
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Bad breath that won’t go away
