If your gums are inflamed or if they bleed easily, Dr. Powell can treat you for gum disease.
Gum Disease Treatment in West Jordan
Here in West Jordan, we provide gum disease treatments that will restore your oral health. Some of the signs of gum disease include:
- Swollen and bleeding gums
- Change in the way your teeth fit together
- Bad breath
- Receding gums
- Tender gums
We encourage you to contact Jordan Landing Smiles if you are showing any of the signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a degenerative condition primarily caused by the bacteria found in plaque. When this bacteria infects the gum tissues, it can eventually cause gum recession, tooth loss, and bone damage.
OralDNA is a brilliant technology that aids us in the accurate diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease. Our patients deserve successful gum disease treatment, and OralDNA helps our team give that to them!
OralDNA involves a saliva sample collection. We mail the sample to OralDNA and receive a report back within 2 weeks. This report tells us which of the 11 species of bacteria are afflicting your gums. With this specific information, Dr. Powell can determine the best antibiotic therapy for you.
OralDNA is a quick and painless test, and can tell us a lot about the frequency of your follow-up visits and what kind of gum disease treatment will be most effective for you.
Reversing Periodontal Disease
We most commonly treat our patients with scaling and root planing treatments. A deep cleaning with regular follow-ups is often enough to improve your oral health. We may also use antibiotic treatments or recommend minor surgeries.
Come in for an exam at our office to find out whether you need gum disease treatment. We have the tools to alleviate your periodontal disease symptoms and keep your health on track.
