Periodontal (Gum) Disease in San Ramon, CA

Periodontal (gum) disease is a condition of inflammation in the gums, which may lead to severe damage to your oral health. There are several stages of periodontal disease that range from mild to severe. The first stage is gingivitis, which is brought on by plaque buildup in the gum pockets. If not treated, gingivitis can turn into the second phase, known as periodontitis, which impacts the bone and fibers that hold your teeth. Advanced periodontitis is the last phase of periodontal disease, which can cause teeth to become loose or fall out. To treat periodontal disease, San Ramon Family Dental offers both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options based on the seriousness of the disease, such as antibiotics, scaling and root planing, gum grafts, gum surgery, and tooth extraction. If you have signs of periodontal disease, please contact our office in San Ramon, CA to schedule an examination with Dr. Rupam Khanna.

Periodontal disease treatments will be determined by the intensity of the infection. If Dr. Khanna determines you have gum disease, she will go over her recommendations for your treatment program. For cases caught early, scaling and root planing (SRP) is typically done to clean out the pockets of the gums. In more advanced cases, an antibiotic may be taken in addition to numerous scaling and root planing treatments. Serious cases of gum disease typically need gum surgery, like regenerative (grafting) or pocket reduction.

It is important to treat gum disease as soon as possible since, if left untreated, gum disease can lead to further oral health issues. Periodontal disease treatment offers our San Ramon, CA patients a number of benefits that aid in the renewal of their oral health and wellness. Some of the advantages they experience entail:
