Periodontal Services in San Luis Obispo, California

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a progressive condition that impacts your overall oral health. It starts with tender, swollen, or bleeding gums. Left untreated, it can lead to the loss of gum tissue, jawbone tissue, and even teeth. Call the board-certified dental professionals at Magnolia Dental for the care you need.

What Is Gum Disease?

Periodontal disease, according to WebMD.com, begins with bacterial growth in your mouth. Bacterial buildup, known as plaque, attacks your gum tissue and causes your gums to become inflamed. Symptoms include swollen, puffy, tender, or bleeding gums. Left untreated, it may result in permanent tooth loss due to the destruction of the ligaments and bone tissue that supports your teeth. Gum disease is caused by poor oral hygiene. The best way to prevent gum disease is to practice good at-home care and schedule cleanings every six months.

Be sure to schedule regular checkups and cleanings. Your dentist can diagnose and treat gum disease before it becomes a more serious concern. If caught early, gum disease can be easily reversed. Are you experiencing the symptoms of gum disease? Call Magnolia Dental for treatment today.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

At our office, we offer scaling and root planing. This is a deep cleaning performed to remove plaque and tartar both above and below the gumline. We begin by scaling your teeth, removing the built-up plaque, and polishing the enamel. Next, we clear the tartar away from the roots of your teeth below the gumline. Once this is complete, we will smooth (or plane) your tooth roots. Planing your tooth roots will prevent bacterial growth in the future, minimizing your risk of developing gum disease.

This is actually a well-established office of Doctors Solomon and Hollister. Doctor Solomon is my elderly mother's dentist/oral surgeon, and she is extremely pleased with the care she's received here...and there's a fine old magnolia tree just outside the door!
