Are you seeking a proper Atlanta Gum Disease Treatment? You may think you do not need to concern yourself with gum disease since you brush and floss your teeth regularly. Great oral hygiene habits and general dental care certainly keep gum disease and tooth decay from overtaking your mouth. In reality, you may be right, but you could also be wrong.

Even the best oral hygiene habits are not always effective against gum disease. Plaque can build up in places where your toothbrush and floss cannot reach. These are problem areas where gingivitis can develop. If you have swollen or bleeding gums, don’t hesitate to contact our Atlanta gum disease treatment specialist. Early detection and gum disease treatment can prevent the situation from becoming a serious problem.

Treatment for Gingivitis

In its early stages, gingivitis can cause swelling or puffiness of the gums. Your gums may also bleed when you brush or floss your teeth. Gingivitis treatment requires a thorough cleaning of the teeth and removal of the plaque deposits. Tartar or calculus buildup, due to the plaque, pushes the gums away from the tooth, creating pockets where bacteria grow. This can cause infection and inflammation. If you suffer from gingivitis, Atlanta gum disease treatment is an answer.

Gingivitis treatment needs to start as early as possible with a thorough cleaning. This cleaning includes the removal of the hard tartar, scaling and root planing. Having a full cleaning is often enough to stop the disease from progressing when proper home care is also administered. However, there are situations that require more extensive gum disease treatment.

If gum disease is not treated, it can lead to serious infection of the gums and eventual resorption of the bone around the tooth. This can cause the tooth to loosen and fall out. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in older adults.

In addition to cleaning, scaling and root planing, treatment in later stages of gum disease may include antibiotics placed in the gums or taken orally. Surgery may also be required to remove necrotic gum tissue. Follow up visits to monitor healing are critical.

Prevention of periodontal disease is always the best option. However, when that is not possible, seeking gum disease treatment and following through on home care may prevent an unnecessary loss of teeth. If you have swollen or puffy gums, redness or bleeding, please make an appointment with Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta today. Our Atlanta gum disease treatment experts will help get your gum disease under control and back to oral health.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
