Traditionally, dentists and periodontists alike were trained to assess how much gum one has. The question they ask is: Do you have enough tissue? Periodontists don’t think about the weak, soft roots being exposed to the acidic pH of the mouth or the bristles of the toothbrush. For decades they have been trained to look at the gums, and only the gums.
But at Santiago Dental Wellness, Drs. Kimberly and Jed are concerned with receding gums and your teeth in Issaquah, WA. We think about prevention and loss of tooth structure. The best dentistry is no dentistry at all. Why should you wait to lose root structure because of insufficient gum coverage, only to have to put fillings in your tooth or crown the tooth? Why wait for more bone loss? We appreciate and embrace this new way of conservative thinking; we want to offer you the most conservative and non-invasive treatment that will give you the longest-lasting result. Ask us more about why our philosophy is right for you!
There are numerous ways that a dentist can tell if you have gum disease. Talk with your dental provider if you have noticed any of these signs:
- Gums that are inflamed and bleed when brushing or eating
- Teeth that seem to be loosening
- Bad breath that does not go away, even with bad breath treatment
Always take your oral health seriously. Call our office today to start a conversation about gum disease treatment in Issaquah for you or someone you love.
