Gum Disease Treatment For Maple Grove Patients
Want a healthy smile? Having strong and beautiful teeth is just the start. Healthy gums are a vital factor in both your dental and overall health.
Preserve Your Dental Health with Gum Disease Treatment
Maple Grove dentist, Dr. Jamie Sledd, and our team members work hard to give our patients optimally healthy gums so that they can avoid gum disease and other dental health issues in the future.
We are especially concerned about gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss and bone deterioration if left unchecked. Furthermore, gum disease has been linked to even more serious health concerns like diabetes or heart conditions.
Gum disease also poses concerns for your future dental work. Before engaging in any restorative or cosmetic dental work, you first need to ensure that your gums are healthy, which is why we may treat gum disease before beginning any other procedures.
Do I Have Periodontal Disease?
How do you know if you have gum disease? Look for signs such as:
- Swollen or tender gums
- Red or bleeding gums
- Chronic bad breath
- Sores in the mouth
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum tissue, and it is caused by bacteria. Periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, jawbone deterioration, and even heart problems. You can avoid gum disease by brushing and flossing regularly in between semiannual cleanings at your dentist’s office.
Fight Periodontal Disease Early With OralDNA Testing
Around 75% of adults are suffering from gum disease, and many of them are unaware that they should seek treatment. Arbor Lakes Dental, near Brooklyn Park, MN, can protect you from the sneaky but dangerous nature of gum disease by using OralDNA Testing.
OralDNA is a fast and pain-free test for the early detection of gum disease. OralDNA can also detect other serious health threats, including oral cancer and HPV. We incorporate different tests that can detect your risk for various oral diseases or even indicate the current stage of your gum disease.
You swish a solution around your mouth to gather a sample of the bacteria present. We then send this sample to a lab for identification. Your results tell us what diseases and conditions you are currently at risk for, so we can plan gum disease treatment accordingly.
Benefits of OralDNA Testing
With OralDNA, our patients can enjoy the following benefits:
- Rapid and accurate treatment.
- Pain-free testing.
- Saving time and money on dental work down the road.
- Lowered risk of tooth loss, heart disease, and stroke.
