What are some early warning signs of periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a gum infection that damages or inflames the gums and bones surrounding and supporting the teeth. Without periodontal care, consistent bleeding gums or tooth loss can occur. However, periodontal disease has several stages and symptoms that indicate the need for periodontal care. The following warning signs of periodontal disease include:
- Swollen Gums
- Receding Gums
- Painful Chewing
- Gum Abscess
- Loose Teeth
What does periodontal treatment include?
If you notice any warning signs of periodontal disease, receiving gum care as soon as possible can better the chances of reversing the damage. Typically, periodontal care will begin with a non-surgical step like a deep cleaning. If a deep cleaning does not heal your gums, then it is likely another gum disease treatment will be necessary. At Villa Vista Dental Care, we provide several gum disease treatment options for patients needing periodontal care.
How much does periodontal treatment cost?
The cost of gum disease treatment will vary on whether or not a surgical or non-surgical technique was used to restore the gum and bone to prevent tooth loss. The best way to prevent gum disease is by maintaining consistent oral hygiene and regular dental visits every six months. At Villa Vista Dental, we never want financial barriers to prevent you from receiving the dental care you need. Our office offers a variety of payment options, accepts dental insurance, and has payment plan options. To learn more about periodontal care costs, give our office a call to discuss your options.
