If you have the red, tender, bleeding gums associated with periodontal disease, then you may want to visit our dentist for periodontal care. Dr. Todd Tibbs offers the treatments needed to heal your mouth so you no longer have to suffer from this infection. Schedule an appointment with our dental team if you need to receive treatment for gum disease in Salisbury, North Carolina.
Periodontal (gum) disease is commonly caused by plaque, a sticky bacterial film that forms on the teeth. When plaque is allowed to collect on the teeth, the gums surrounding the teeth become inflamed and irritated. Irritated gum tissue sometimes separates from the teeth and forms pockets. Bacteria in your mouth then move into the pockets and continue to wreak havoc on your gums, eventually progressing to the bone and other tissues that support the teeth. If left untreated, the bones and tissues that support the teeth could be destroyed.
At our dental practice, we aim to stop gum disease in its tracks. We provide deep cleaning services, such as scaling and root planning, that are designed to help you maintain good overall oral health. To avoid gum disease, remember to floss and brush daily and consistently attend appointments with our dentist, Dr. Todd Tibbs.
If you are experiencing pain or notice that your gums are red or swollen, please contact our office at 704-633-1799 immediately. We will help you schedule an appointment and get you back on track to a healthy mouth.
