General dentists are in charge of managing your tooth and gum health, catching problems when they arise, and educating your family on the most effective ways to preserve your smile and prevent gum disease. At Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center, Dr. Yaros, Dr. Zeppelin, and Dr. Augustine are also very skilled in the area of periodontics, the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease. Because gum disease is such a common condition, it is important to us that every patient understands the risk factors and the benefits of periodontal treatment.
The Threat of Periodontal Disease
Gum disease can pose a serious threat to your dental health, as well as your smile appearance. Caused by a build-up of plaque, gum disease gradually damages and depletes the soft tissues of the mouth and often leads to tooth loss. And missing teeth are just the tip of the iceberg: What you may not realize is that untreated gum disease can also have an effect on your total body health, with links to heart disease, stroke, and other dangerous conditions.
The Benefits of Periodontics
Periodontal therapy is a wonderful way to strengthen your smile and improve your total dental health. Our periodontal team has helped countless Colorado patients fight gum disease with advanced treatment plans that are customized based on individual factors. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease or you notice any of the following symptoms, please contact our office to set up a personalized oral health screening.
- Red or swollen gums
- Pain or soreness in the gums or teeth
- Loose teeth
- Worn dental work
- Receding gums
- Bleeding gums
We are able to treat many of the patients that come to us with gum disease, but for more serious cases, we may recommend the highly regarded periodontal practice next door to our office.
