A Better Way to Treat Gums

The health of your smile and your body is tied directly to the health of your gums. Our dentists, Dr. Homa H. Zadeh and associates offer a number of different treatments to address gum disease and allow you to enjoy good oral and general health. Our team always strives for the most conservative and least invasive treatments possible and avoid surgery when possible.

Gum disease is caused by the plaque that collects on your teeth. The plaque contains bacteria and also causes your gums to swell. This allows even more plaque to accumulate below your gumline, a condition known as gum disease or periodontal disease. If you have gum disease, you can experience tender, swollen or bleeding gums. You may see your gums receding and your teeth may begin to feel loose.

Depending on the how severe your disease is, our dentists may simply recommend improving your oral hygiene regimen, or changing the dental products you use. We may also suggest a deep cleaning or a course of antibiotics, or surgery when needed.
