Protect Your Smile: Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment at Denisovich Dentistry

Your gums are the foundation for your teeth, playing a vital role in your oral health and overall well-being. Unfortunately, gum disease, also known as periodontitis, can affect these crucial tissues, leading to serious consequences if left untreated.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the gums and the bone that supports your teeth. It begins with plaque buildup, which hardens into tartar and irritates the gums. If left unchecked, this irritation can lead to:

  • Swollen, red, and bleeding gums
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Pus between the teeth and gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Changes in the way your teeth fit together

The Stages of Gum Disease:

The American Academy of Periodontology recognizes four stages of gum disease, each progressing at varying rates.

  1.  Gingivitis (Stage I): This early stage is characterized by mild inflammation and bleeding gums. It’s reversible with good oral hygiene practices.
  2. Early Periodontitis (Stage II ): This stage involves deeper pockets forming between the teeth and gums, potentially leading to bone loss.
  3. Moderate Periodontitis (Stage III): Deeper pockets form, and bone loss becomes more evident. Loose teeth may also be present.
  4. Advanced Periodontitis (Stage IV): This severe stage involves significant bone loss, loose teeth that may fall out, and changes in the way your teeth fit together.

Gum Disease and Your Overall Health:

Studies reveal a disturbing connection between gum disease and various health problems, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Inflammation
  • Diabetes
  • Preterm birth and low birth weight
  • Respiratory Diseases
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Patient Education: We empower patients with knowledge and skills through comprehensive oral hygiene instruction, ensuring effective plaque control at home.
  • Scaling and Root Planing (SRP): This deep cleaning procedure removes plaque and tartar from the teeth’ roots, promoting healing and preventing further damage.
  • Periodontal Maintenance: Regularly scheduled cleanings, typically up to four times a year, are crucial for maintaining gum health and preventing disease recurrence.
  • Advanced Treatment Options: When necessary, Dr. Denisovich offers advanced treatment options, including surgical procedures, gum grafting, gum regeneration or refers patients to specialists for optimal care.

What Our Patients are Saying

Dr. Denisovich is a true lifesaver! After enduring a year of pain from a crown placed by another clinic, Dr. Denisovich diagnosed the issue and expertly corrected it. He understood the root cause, aligned everything perfectly, and now I'm pain-free with a fully functional tooth. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thank you, Dr. Denisovich, for your exceptional care and expertise!

I had an exceptional experience at Denisovich Dentistry! They squeezed me in last minute for a wisdom tooth extraction, and the entire experience was fantastic. Both Dr. Denisovich and Genessa provided exceptional care and made the process smooth and comfortable. Couldn't be happier with their service! Highly recommend them to anyone in need of dental care.

The office staff is very nice and welcoming. This was the best dental experience I have had in years. It is hard to find a dentist and their staff that are all nice and provide good care. The dentist and assistant both took their time with me and ensured I understood what was going to take place and what to expect as well as ensuring I understood any suggested treatment and why it was necessary. I left feeling confident that the treatment plan was for care that was needed for my better dental health and not for the dentist to make money off of unnecessary treatment.
