Our Thorough Approach

Our Chino periodontist understands how complex gum disease can be. That's why we take a thorough approach to periodontics, giving just as much attention to prevention as treatment. When you visit our practice for the first time, we'll begin by conducting an extensive oral exam. Our team will look at the overall condition of your teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures.

We'll also take an in-depth look at your medical history to help us identify potential risk factors. Finally, our periodontist will create your personalized treatment plan detailing the treatments we recommend. We encourage you to ask questions about your plan, as we're happy to break down what procedures and treatments entail.

What is Gum Disease?

Chino periodontal treatmentGum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection of the organic material that supports and surrounds your teeth. If gum disease is left untreated, it can lead to severe dental complications, like jawbone deterioration and tooth loss. The earliest and easily treatable stage of gum disease is called gingivitis, which causes inflammation of your gum tissues. Gingivitis is simple to address on its own but can quickly progress to advanced gum disease without proper treatment.

Our Chino periodontics emphasizes catching gum disease in its early stages. Not only do regular dental checkups help prevent gum disease, but proper oral hygiene can slow the disease's progression and prevent complications. We'll take the time to break down how to properly care for your gums at home.

7 Signs of Gum Disease

Various factors can contribute to your having a higher chance of developing gum disease. Genetics, age, and pre-existing health condition are all crucial factors. However, early signs of gum disease have subtleties that, if spotted, can make treatment easier, regardless of your risk factors. Some of the most common signs of gum disease include:

  1. Excessive gum bleeding
  2. Persistent bad breath
  3. Puffy and swollen gums
  4. Receding gum line
  5. Gum abscesses
  6. Tooth loss
  7. Increased sensitivity to hot or cold

Our Efficient Periodontal Treatments

Our Chino periodontics practice offers various treatments for different severity levels of gum disease. What's important to remember is that no matter how overwhelmed you may feel, we have the skills and dedication to help your smile look and feel its best. During your exam with our dentist, they'll help you find the perfect treatment plan by explaining our procedures in detail. Some of our treatments and procedures include:

Scaling & Root Planing: This two-part periodontal procedure entails removing bacteria and plaque along and beneath your gum line. Scaling is the process of scraping plaque from your tooth's surface and the pockets between your teeth and gums. Planing is when we smooth your teeth's roots to help create a secure hold for your gums and reduce the risk of developing gum disease. Typically, the two treatments are performed in a single dental appointment.

Gingivectomy: A gingivectomy is an oral surgical procedure that removes diseased portions of your gums. Gingivectomies are necessary when your gums have pulled away from the surface of your teeth, which creates deep pockets. These pockets expose your teeth's roots and can introduce them to bacteria and other harmful materials.

Gum Grafting: Gum grafting or gingival grafting is a procedure to cover exposed tooth roots. However, unlike other periodontal treatments, gum grafting takes portions of your gums, normally from your palate, and places them to reinforce weakened gums. It can take as little as one office visit for gum grafting. Although the severity of your gum disease can alter how long the procedure takes.

Gentle Oral Cancer Screenings

We have the experience and skills to perform oral cancer screenings at Delicate Smiles. Oral cancer can be present on your lips, tongue, and gums. We can help prevent your smile from developing detrimental oral complications by detecting abnormalities in your oral health. We recommend that you undergo an oral cancer screening at least once a year.
