Gum Disease

 At Parklane Family Dentistry, we offer effective gum treatments and surgery options for patients who are suffering from gum disease and other issues. Typically, periodontal disease is the prime cause for you to need to have some type of surgery on your gums. The older you get, the more susceptible you are to having some level of gum disease. To read more about periodontal disease, you can find it here.

The signs of periodontal disease can include:

  • Gum Recession
  • Bleeding gums
  • Gum tissue, bone and teeth deterioration

There are many preventive measures you can take to prevent periodontal disease. Regular brushing, flossing and checkups and cleanings by a professional twice a year are effective ways to avoid gum disease.

For the holidays, why not consider stuffing the entire family’s stockings with items that will promote dental health and prevent gum disease? Always ensure that the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance is on the gifts that you are buying.

Stocking Stuffers That Promote Dental Health

  • Toothbrush- Choose soft-bristled toothbrushes when buying. Remind each member of your family that they need to be brushing at least two times per day.
  • Floss- Why not choose wintery flavored floss for the holidays? Peppermint floss leaves your mouth feeling wintery fresh. Remind each member of your family that they need to floss at least one time per day.
  • Toothpaste- If any member of your family has been treated for periodontal disease, be sure to choose toothpaste that is made for sensitive teeth and gums.
