Periodontics

No one wants to worry about gum disease, but over 75% of Americans suffer from unhealthy gums. If you observe swollen or tender gums in your mouth, you could benefit greatly from a visit to an experienced periodontist.

Dr. Erickson and his team are well versed in current periodontal treatment options. You can reverse gum disease in a comfortable manner at Jordan Landing Dental Care.

Your Gum Treatment Options

We are experts in preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum disease. For particularly bad cases, we can introduce you to the specialists who can assist you.

Periodontists are trained to reduce the bacteria associated with periodontal disease, as well as provide services to improve gum recession or tooth loss. From installing veneers and bridges to reconstructing jaw bones, periodontal specialists can make your smile feel like new.

Our office focuses on early reversal procedures like scaling and root planing. These deep cleaning treatments involve clearing bacteria from the roots and gums of the teeth. We will also conduct x-rays and exams to determine how much bone and teeth loss is affecting you, and the best course of action to avoid further complications.

Who Can Benefit from Periodontal Care?

Gum disease can sneak up on you and surprise you with tooth and bone loss. A large majority of the population could benefit from early periodontal care.

Brushing and flossing regularly, along with regular cleanings and checkups, is the best way to prevent periodontal disease. Signs of gum disease include:

  • Red and puffy gums
  • Bleeding gum tissue
  • Loose teeth
  • Bad breath or bad taste in mouth

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you are a likely candidate for periodontal care.
