Gingivitis/Gum Disease Treatment in Bloomington, IL

How is Periodontal Disease Defined?

Commonly called gum disease, periodontal disease involves the inflammation and infection of the gums. If not treated in its early stages, gum disease can lead to more serious issues like tooth loss. Our dentists specialize in reversing gum disease, offering gingivitis treatment that gets results. If you notice signs of gum disease in Bloomington, give our office a call.

What Can Cause Gum Disease?

Failing to brush and floss teeth properly can lead to plaque buildup, which irritates your gums. Over time, plaque can harden into tartar, which can further damage your teeth and gum line. Fortunately, gum disease can be prevented with regular dental cleanings from our office. We also treat gum disease in patients of all ages, providing them with an effective gingivitis cure.

Gingivitis Symptoms in Patients

Sometimes, gum disease symptoms are undetectable in the very early stages. However, there are a few telltale signs to look out for, including:

  • Puffy and swollen gums
  • Redness on the gum line
  • Bleeding when brushing or flossing
  • Unpleasant breath

Signs of Gingivitis in Patients

With regular visits to your dentist, early gingivitis symptoms can be treated before matters get worse. Warning signs of gingivitis include:

  • Irritation and swelling along the gum line
  •  A receding gum line
  •  Loose or shifting teeth
  •  Visible pus between teeth or on gums
  •  Inflamed pockets forming on the gum line

The Three Stages of Gum Disease

As gum disease progresses, different symptoms occur at each stage. Call our office if you’re experiencing any gum disease symptoms.

Gingivitis: This early stage of gum disease is characterized by bleeding gums while brushing or flossing. You may not experience any pain, but it’s important to visit your dentist as soon as possible for a gingivitis cure.
Periodontitis: During the second stage of gum disease, the bone and gums are permanently damaged. You may notice deep pockets beginning to form at the gum line, trapping bacteria and causing the disease to further progress.
Advanced Periodontitis: This is the final stage of gum disease, where teeth begin to fall out and shift. You can avoid this severe stage of the disease by receiving treatment as soon as you notice signs of gingivitis.

A Guide to Finding a Gingivitis Cure

Our dentists administer effective gingivitis treatment, helping people cure their gum disease in Bloomington. Prevention is key when it comes to gingivitis. Regular cleanings and excellent dental care at home can help prevent tartar buildup and reduce the risk of gum disease.

An Overview of Advanced Periodontal Disease and Gingivitis Treatment

We work closely with patients to provide a gingivitis cure that suits their needs. However, patients with severe cases may be referred to a periodontist, who administers scaling, planing, and other techniques. You may also require a special mouth rinse or antibiotics to fight the infection.

Reversing Gum Disease

While still in its early stages, gum disease in Bloomington can be alleviated with proper treatment and good oral care. Our skilled dentists create an effective gum disease cure that will help you repair your gums. If you’re experiencing gingivitis symptoms, don’t wait—call our office today to learn more about gum disease treatment.
