Are You Taking Good Care of Your Gums?
Diagnosed or suspected gum disease, signs of gum recession, bleeding gums and gum pain or gum inflammation, should all be investigated by your dentist. Some dentists are not specialized in periodontal disease treatment and in some advanced cases of periodontitis, a Bristol, CT dentist will refer you to a periodontist.
Dr. Robert Treado and his Bristol, CT dental team would be happy to see you about any concerns regarding your gum health. Gum treatment options can include laser therapy and other cosmetic procedures.
Don’t neglect gum issues. In addition to tooth loss, you could be risking heart health, stroke and cancer risk, and other problems, too.
Dental Implants, Too
In addition to gum treatment option, Dr. Treado can offer you a dental implants consultation. Find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants. Whether you need to replace a single missing tooth or have several teeth that need to be replaced, dentists recommend replacing it as soon as possible as jaw bone loss and the shifting of neighboring teeth can happen quicker than you might expect.
