Periodontal disease is a health condition that we take very seriously at Artistic Dentistry. We do our very best to prevent this disease, but if you do indeed suffer from it, we are delighted to help you by providing periodontal treatment in San Clemente, California.
Periodontal disease occurs when the plaque that resides on your teeth is left untreated. If it continues to live on the surfaces of your teeth, it will give you constant bad breath, and it will begin to irritate your gums, which will make them bleed when you brush your teeth or eat. If the plaque is still left untreated, it will begin to send toxins into your gums. When this happens, your gums will begin to recede, and your teeth will look much longer than natural. Eventually, the toxins will spread into your underlying bone and will begin to deteriorate it. Then, your teeth will become loose and will eventually fall out of your mouth.
Dr. Amir Nikraz is happy to help you with many different techniques, which include professional dental cleanings, scaling and root planing methods, and laser gum surgery. To prevent this health condition, we ask that you keep up on your six-month checkups so our dentist can scrape the surfaces of your teeth and eliminate the plaque that lives and grows there.
