At Ashburn General Dentistry, we make it our goal to provide you with high-quality dental care to keep your entire smile healthy. It is easy to think that your teeth are the most important part of your mouth, but your gum tissue is also an integral component of your smile and oral health. Keeping your gums in good condition is also essential to maintaining good overall health. If you do not take good care of your gums, periodontal disease (gum disease) can lead to tooth loss, bone loss, and loss of gum tissue. Periodontal disease has also been linked to many serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and premature birth. In order to prevent these serious effects, and to return your smile to its full, healthy potential, we provide quality gum treatment in Ashburn, Virginia.
The specific type of periodontal treatment that you need is reliant on the severity of the condition of your gums and your personal needs. Dr. Amit B. Patel is skilled in scaling and root planing, deep cleaning treatments that are often recommended to treat periodontal disease. If your condition is very severe or does not respond well to treatment, we can refer you to a periodontist (a dentist who specializes in periodontal treatment). If you have gums that are swollen, red, or bleeding, you may have periodontal disease. We invite you to call or visit our office if you would like more information about how periodontal treatment can help restore your smile and health.
