Gum disease solutions available in Manhattan Beach, CA area dental practice

Gum Disease Solutions in Manhattan Beach Ca Area

We have all heard about gum disease, and with proper care and attention, most patients can prevent this condition from occurring. However, gum disease, or “periodontal disease,” is a problem that cannot be cured. Once it has developed, it cannot be cured, just controlled, with the help of a dental provider in the Manhattan Beach, California community. Our dentists here at Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions do not have ways to cure gum disease, as this cannot be done, but instead, they provide solutions that can help manage the condition over time and keep it from becoming more severe and damaging to the smile. Dr. Don Mungcal provide options for patients.

Understanding periodontal disease

Periodontal disease is a preventable condition that is caused by an infection of the gum tissues. While it initially starts out affecting the gums and soft tissues of the mouth, the infection can worsen and spread throughout the mouth. Patients can lose gum tissue, jawbone, and natural teeth if they do not get a proper diagnosis and seek treatment with a dental professional.

What treatments are available?

There are a few different ways in which a dentist can approach the treatment of gum disease:

  • Deep cleaning – in the earlier stages of periodontal disease called gingivitis, deep cleaning of the teeth and gums can help dramatically. Our dental hygienists are trained to provide thorough prophylaxis treatments for new and current patients to remove plaque, tartar, and calculus from the teeth while cleaning closely along the gumline.
  • Root planing and scaling – a more aggressive cleaning called root planing and scaling may be done for patients in the later stages of periodontal disease. This invasive procedure cleans the teeth roots as well, and during the treatment, our dental team will assess the pockets that have developed between the gum tissue and the teeth.
  • Antibiotics – severe cases of infection may include prescription oral antibiotics to control the infection or even antibiotics applied directly to the oral cavity.
