Keep Gum Disease from Harming Your Health

The Oral-Systemic Connection

As the “window” to the rest of your body, your mouth, and how healthy it is, plays a large part in the health of your entire body. If gum disease is present, the bacteria that are inflaming and infecting the gum tissue can spread, in addition to damaging your gums and bone. Without treatment, this chronic condition can aggravate other systemic problems like diabetes and heart disease and even has ties to low birth weight babies! Gum disease, in addition to affecting whole-body health, is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. Keeping bacteria and gum disease away through routine cleanings and evaluations at our office is important for maintaining all aspects of your health. However, if you already have symptoms of gum disease in Augusta, GA, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at our Augusta, GA office right away! We can help you fight gum disease and restore your gums, bone, and teeth to optimal health with our personalized gum disease treatments.

Protect Your Smile’s Foundation

Your gums and bone are the foundation for healthy teeth and a functional smile. If bacteria start to damage or destroy these tissues, it’s crucial that you receive treatment for gum disease in Augusta, GA! At Bela Family Dentistry, our skilled dentists offer non-surgical gum disease treatment with dental cleanings, antibiotic therapy, and scaling and root planing. At your appointment, we’ll assess what stage of gum disease you’re in so we can provide the most appropriate and effective gum disease treatment plan.

Customized Periodontal Services

Scaling and Root Planing
Fight gum disease with non-surgical therapy. Using ultrasonic scalers, which vibrate at a high speed, we effectively remove plaque and tartar on the teeth above and below the gum line. We then smooth the tooth roots (planing) to let healthy gum tissue reattach and block bacteria.
Osseous Surgery
Keep advanced gum disease from progressing any further with surgery. For more advanced cases of gum disease, this treatment clears bacteria, plaque, and tartar from the periodontal pockets and teeth. We also remove the diseased gum tissue, reshape or restore damaged bone, and ensure a healthy environment so gums can reattach to the teeth.
Periodontal Maintenance
Keep your gums healthy long-term with personalized deep cleanings. Periodontal maintenance every 3-4 months keeps dangerous bacteria accumulation from causing gum disease to develop again. We also ensure periodontal pockets are as healthy as possible.
