Understanding Gingivitis

We help patients understand this disease in order to better treat and prevent gingivitis in Long Beach

Identifying and preventing gum disease in Long Beach is most commonly done through scheduling routine dental cleanings and exams, where the teeth and mouth can be properly evaluated by a professional. During these visits your dentist will always be sure to take a close look at your gum tissue and check for any signs of gingivitis before symptoms can get any further out of control. The most common signs that you are suffering from early stages of gum disease include swelling, bleeding gums that often include redness and soreness. When these symptoms are acknowledged early into the process of infection, your dentist can likely reverse the effect and re-establish a healthy sense of oral hygiene. However, in certain cases this disease can become much worse, leading to what professionals refer to as periodontal disease, and this can cause devastating effects on the mouth that include tooth loss, and bone damage that may prevent the use of dental implants as a replacement option. All stages of gum disease can recede gum tissue and greatly increase chances of tooth decay and overall infection. These reasons are why it is important to seek regular dental check-ups and protect your oral health. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and think that you may be in need of treatment for gingivitis in Long Beach, then give our skilled staff members a call today.

Taking Action On Gum Disease

Treating gum disease in Long Beach is done quickly and effectively to relieve pain and repair oral health

Our office takes great measures to ensure the oral health of our patients, and especially those suffering from various stages of gum disease due to its high risk association with other damaging issues within the mouth. Early stages of gingivitis can be detected through your general exam and treated rather easily with a deep cleaning, which involves a more thorough process than what you would receive during an exam, making sure to eliminate plaque and tartar buildup that lies closely along the gum line. This buildup is generally what leads to the infection within the gums, causing a wide variety of symptoms that sometimes do not even involve levels of pain that are noticeable to patients. This can be dangerous due to the fact that the infection will be allowed to grow without correction, allowing for pockets to be developed beneath the gums and potentially have permanent damage to an individual’s mouth and surrounding teeth. Certain extreme cases of periodontal disease, which develops beyond basic gingivitis, can end up requiring drastic measures to correct, such as oral surgery. It is important to be mindful of obvious signs of gum disease before they get out of hand. If you are noticing red and swollen gums, even bleeding during routine brushing and flossing, then it is time to schedule an appointment and correct the issue before it’s too late. The health of our gum tissue is a foundation for our teeth, and protecting this soft tissue is an essential aspect of oral health. If you have not received a cleaning in over six months and believe you may be suffering from gum disease in Long Beach, we urge you to give us a call at (562) 999-3602 today. We can help!

"Stop Gum Disease Before It Starts"

"Stop Gum Disease Before It Starts"

Our goal is to prevent gingivitis in Long Beach by informing patients of proper oral hygiene

"Preventing damage to the tissue through gum disease is essential to the health of our entire mouths, and it is our individual responsibility to ensure that we do everything we can to protect our smile through effective oral hygiene from home. This is exactly why I take the time to inform patients of the most advantageous methods for prevention from gingivitis in Long Beach. Make sure that you are brushing your teeth regularly, but there is never any need to brush with force. This can cause damage to the surface area of our gums and is frequently less effective than using appropriate brushing tactics with less pressure. While brushing, utilize a gentle circular motion across the entire surface of your teeth, and if you have sensitive gums I recommend you purchase a soft-bristled brush that can decrease the amount of irritation through daily use. It is essential to floss daily and after every meal when preventing the kind of dangerous buildup that can occur between our teeth over long periods of time, infecting the gums and creating a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Take your time with oral hygiene, and always be sure to schedule professional dental cleanings no less than twice a year."
