What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is an oral health issue that impacts the tissue that surrounds the tooth including the alveolar bone and the jawbone. The first stage of gum disease is gingivitis, in which symptoms are often minor and easily overlooked. The more advanced form of the condition is periodontitis, in which symptoms are much more severe.
Symptoms of Periodontal Disease
During your routine appointments, your dentist will check for signs of periodontal disease. If you notice any of these warning signs at home, please schedule an evaluation:
- Bleeding gums
- Red or swollen gum tissue
- Sores around the teeth
- Receding gumline
- A change in the bite
- Chronic bad breath
Periodontal Treatment Options
Your treatment regimen for gum disease depends on how advanced the condition is. Patients with gingivitis may only need more frequent cleanings and improvement in at-home oral hygiene. Patients with advanced periodontitis may require other forms of treatment including:
- Scaling & Root Planing – This deep periodontal cleaning removes plaque, tartar, and infection beneath the gumline and smooths the roots to prevent future problems.
- Laser Gum Treatment – Helps regenerate tissue and bone that has been lost to gum disease.
- Periodontal Maintenance – Increased frequency of routine cleanings in order to maintain oral health and monitor the health of the gum tissue.
Laser Treatments for Gum Disease
Lasers are a nonsurgical approach to arresting the progression of periodontal disease. Following scaling and root planing, a laser is used to significantly reduce the bacterial colonies and decontaminate the infected periodontal pocket. Lasers also remove the infected tissue lining the periodontal pocket. As the infected tissue is removed, microscopic blood clots form and your body’s natural healing response takes over. As you heal, the tissue re-attaches to the bone and your gums return to a healthy, infection-free state.

Periodontal Dentistry FAQs
Can periodontal disease be reversed?
Enhanced dental care and a dedicated focus on gum health can reverse the initial phase of periodontal disease, commonly known as gingivitis. However, once gingivitis advances into periodontitis, it becomes an irreversible condition.
Can periodontal disease be prevented?
Yes, periodontal disease can be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene habits. This includes regular brushing and flossing, using mouthwash, and visiting Sierra Gate Family Dental for professional cleanings and checkups. Additionally, avoiding tobacco use and maintaining a healthy lifestyle contributes to gum health.
Can natural remedies or alternative treatments treat periodontal disease?
While some natural remedies or alternative treatments may help manage symptoms or promote gum health, they are not substitutes for professional periodontal disease treatment. It is important to consult with Dr. Ardy Keshtkar and his skilled team in Roseville, CA for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.
