Understanding the Threat of Periodontal Disease

Common Issues: Periodontal disease often begins as simple gum inflammation but can progress to affect the bone that supports your teeth, leading to tooth loss if untreated.

Symptoms include persistent bad breath, red or swollen gums, tender or bleeding gums, painful chewing, and even loose teeth.

Targeted Solutions: At Sarasota Dental Arts, we use advanced diagnostic techniques and effective treatment methods to halt the progression of periodontal disease.

Our approach includes deep cleaning procedures such as scaling and root planing, as well as more advanced interventions like flap surgery and laser treatment, depending on the severity of the condition.

Proven Results: Our patients experience significant improvements in gum health following our treatments, which not only alleviate symptoms but also stabilize tooth support and prevent future complications.

Regular follow-ups ensure long-term success and maintenance of oral health.


Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs to help you understand what to expect during treatment for periodontal disease at Sarasota Dental Arts.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place, typically caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—to build up on the teeth and harden.

What are the signs of periodontal disease?
Signs include swollen, red, and bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, loose teeth, and visible pus surrounding the teeth and gums.
How is periodontal disease treated?

Treatment varies depending on the severity of the disease and may include professional dental cleanings, scaling and root planing (a deep cleaning method), medication, and possibly surgical interventions.

Can periodontal disease be cured?
While periodontal disease can be managed and its progression halted, it requires ongoing maintenance and care to prevent recurrence.
Is periodontal treatment painful?
We take steps to minimize discomfort during treatment, including local anesthesia and, if necessary, sedation options to make the process as comfortable as possible.
How often should I visit my dentist if I have periodontal disease?
Patients with periodontal disease may need to visit the dentist more frequently, typically every 3-4 months for a periodontal maintenance cleaning, depending on the severity of the disease.
What can I do to prevent periodontal disease?
Good oral hygiene, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and regular dental check-ups, is essential in preventing periodontal disease.
What are the risks of not treating periodontal disease?

Untreated periodontal disease can lead to severe infection, tooth loss, and has been linked to other serious health issues, including heart disease and diabetes.

Most dental insurance plans offer some coverage for periodontal treatment.

We recommend checking with your insurance provider for details about your specific coverage.
