Dentist in Upland, CA – Deep Cleanings for Gum Disease

Regular professional cleanings at our dental office are essential for removing bacteria-harboring plaque and tartar that can’t be cleaned with at-home oral health care. Without regular tartar removal, you can develop gum problems such as gum disease and even periodontitis (a severe gum infection). Thankfully, our dentist in Upland, CA, offers cleanings to protect your gum health!

Causes & Risk Factors

While some people are simply more prone to developing gum disease, there are factors you can avoid or fix to reduce your risk, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth (more difficult to care for than straight teeth)
  • Excess sugar consumption
  • Poor oral hygiene

Gum Disease Symptoms

Initially, gingivitis (early-stage gum disease) will make your gums bleed when you brush. Gingivitis can be reversed with proper cleaning and gum therapy. However, if left untreated, it can progress to periodontal disease and eventual tooth loss. 

Some other symptoms include:

  • Loose teeth
  • Painful chewing
  • Bad breath
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Red or inflamed gums
  • Receding (shrinking) gum line
  • Teeth sensitivity

If you notice any of these symptoms, contact our dentist. The longer you wait to have your gum condition treated, the more it will affect your dental health down the line. 

Treatment Options

The best treatment is prevention. However, if you have developed gingivitis, we will perform a deep cleaning to help reverse the condition – this involves scaling and root planing. Scaling removes hardened tartar and planing smooths the root over to allow your gums to reattach to a clean surface. 

If your gum disease has progressed to a more serious stage, we can discuss options to treat infection below the gum line, or bone grafts if the infection has traveled further. Talk with our dentist today to get on the road to healthy gums!
