Periodontist Northridge

Periodontist NorthridgeGum disease is one of the most common causes of tooth loss and other dental problems. Our periodontist in Northridge can help you determine the causes and proper course of treatment for your gum disease.

Periodontitis, or gum disease, can occur in patients of any age, but is most common in older patients. Gum disease can occur due to a variety of factors, but generally has its beginnings in untreated infections within teeth, which then spread to the gum tissues.

Once pockets of infection have spread to the gum tissue, bacteria can begin making its way into the soft parts of the tooth. Gums may become sensitive or bleed, although many patients do not even know that they have gum disease until the damage is well under way. Our Northridge periodontist can take the first, very important, step in gum disease prevention and treatment by giving your teeth and gums a thorough examination, which will help to determine any active or incipient problems.

Once gum disease has been established, it can quickly lead to tooth loss. Infected teeth may not have the solid gum support they had prior to infection, and tooth loss can occur rapidly. Our periodontist in Northridge can help you decide on the proper course of treatment for damaged teeth, including dental implants and root canals.

Left untreated, gum disease can also spread to other parts of the body, causing infections and disease throughout the body’s systems. It is very important to treat gum disease in its early stages, not only to prevent tooth loss, but to preserve your overall health as well. Our Northridge periodontist can help you determine the right course of treatment for your gum disease issues before other parts of your body are involved and damaged.

Our dentist in Northridge can also give you advice on how to prevent gum disease problems through routine checkups and maintenance of your teeth. Regular brushing and flossing not only gives you a bright and beautiful smile, it is the very best way to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
