Gum disease is a serious infection of the gum tissues that causes sore, bleeding gums.

At Stevens Dental, we see a lot of patients with periodontitis in all stages, and we know how to properly diagnose and treat gum disease. Our state-of-the-art Boise dental office offers friendly, experienced staff who are there to help ease the anxieties you may have regarding your procedure.

Understanding & Treating Periodontitis

Gum disease occurs when the gums start to pull away from the teeth and can cause pain, inflammation, and bad breath. Some demographics are more at risk for gum disease, such as smokers, pregnant women, and those with diabetes. However, anyone can develop periodontitis.

Some signs of degenerative gum disease include:

  • Receding gum line
  • Swollen gums when you brush or eat
  • Gums that bleed
  • Loose teeth or teeth that are shifting in your mouth
  • Teeth that are starting to separate
  • Bad breath
  • Poor taste in your mouth
  • Palette changes

Once gum disease has been detected, there are a few ways to treat it. Professional dental cleanings every six months can help reduce the severity of the disease. Other common treatments are scaling and planing, laser therapy, and, in some cases, medication to help rebuild bone. Your dentist can discuss which option may be best for you.

All Your Comprehensive Care Under One Roof

When it comes to your smile, having healthy gums and teeth is key. Regular dental visits, at-home brushing and flossing, and preventative care can help reduce your risk of gum disease. Our experienced dentists, hygienists, and staff can help discuss what options are best for your periodontal care and offer in-house benefit plans to help you stay on top of your dental care.
