Gum disease is one of the most common oral health conditions patients can face. Symptoms of it include red or sensitive gums, bleeding while brushing or flossing, and chronic bad breath. What’s more, it’s also the number one cause of tooth loss in adults.
But gum disease hasn’t just been tied to oral health. Other conditions in the rest of the body may be impacted by it as well. Those conditions include heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and others.
Because of all this, seeking treating for gum disease is very important. That’s why Dr. Ann and Richard Bonness of Bonness Family Dentistry offer effective gum disease therapy to their patients from Camby and beyond.
Our goal is to provide you with non-surgical therapy that helps you treat your symptoms and improve your sense of health and well-being. To do that, we offer a range of treatment techniques, including:
- Root Planing
- Antibiotic therapy
Scaling and root planing are forms of gum disease therapy used to reduce plaque and bacteria that has collected below the gum line. An antibiotic can then be used to help patients overcome infection. These are the services we’ll turn to first. In more advanced cases, surgery may be required to deliver the kind of care you need.
