Gum Disease

Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a prevalent oral health condition affecting a significant portion of the population in Indianapolis and beyond. Characterized by inflammation of the gums and damage to the supporting structures of the teeth, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and has been linked to various systemic health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory problems.

At Schroeder and Schroeder Dentistry, we take gum disease seriously. Our mission is to provide the residents of Indianapolis with the highest quality gum disease treatment, addressing the root causes of the condition and ensuring your long-term oral health.

Understanding Gum Disease

Before we delve into our comprehensive gum disease treatment options, let's explore the various aspects of gum disease to give you a better understanding of this condition:

  • Gingivitis: Gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease and is characterized by inflamed and bleeding gums. It is typically caused by poor oral hygiene practices and can often be reversed with professional dental cleanings and improved home care routines.
  • Periodontitis: When left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease. At this stage, the infection extends deeper into the supporting structures of the teeth, causing bone loss and pocket formation around the teeth.
  • Advanced Periodontitis: If periodontitis is not addressed promptly, it can advance to this stage, marked by significant bone loss and a higher risk of tooth mobility and loss.

Common Symptoms of Gum Disease

Identifying gum disease in its early stages is crucial for effective treatment. Common signs and symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums, especially during brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath (halitosis)
  • Receding gums, making teeth appear longer
  • Pus between the teeth and gums
  • Changes in the alignment or spacing of teeth
  • Loose or shifting teeth

Our Comprehensive Gum Disease Treatment Options

At Schroeder and Schroeder Dentistry, we offer a range of cutting-edge treatments designed to combat gum disease and restore your oral health effectively. Our approach to gum disease treatment focuses on personalized care tailored to your unique needs.

Deep Cleaning (Scaling and Root Planing)

For patients with mild to moderate gum disease, our dental hygienists perform scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gumline. This procedure helps reduce inflammation and promotes gum healing.

Laser Therapy

Our state-of-the-art laser technology allows for precise and minimally invasive gum disease treatment. Laser therapy targets and eliminates harmful bacteria, promoting gum tissue regeneration and reducing the need for surgical intervention.

Antibiotic Therapy

In some cases, we may prescribe antibiotics to control the infection and promote healing. Depending on the severity of your gum disease, these antibiotics may be applied topically, taken orally, or delivered directly into periodontal pockets.

Surgical Intervention

For advanced cases of gum disease, surgical procedures may be necessary. Our skilled periodontists can perform several dental procedures to restore oral health and prevent further damage.

Maintenance and Follow-up

After successful treatment, we emphasize the importance of regular dental check-ups and ongoing maintenance to prevent gum disease from recurring. Our team will work closely with you to develop a personalized oral care plan to keep your gums healthy.

Prevention and Maintenance

Your daily commitment to oral hygiene and professional guidance form the foundation of gum disease prevention and ensures your overall oral well-being.

Proper Oral Hygiene

Maintaining healthy gums starts with daily oral care:

  • Brush: Use fluoride toothpaste and a soft brush to clean your teeth and gums thoroughly.
  • Floss: Remove debris between teeth and along the gumline with dental floss or interdental brushes.
  • Mouthwash: Rinse with antimicrobial mouthwash for added protection.

Professional Care

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital:

  • Dental Check-ups: Visit your dentist every six months for a comprehensive oral examination.
  • Scaling and Cleaning: Dental professionals remove stubborn tartar, preventing gum inflammation.
  • Personalized Advice: Our dental team can provide tailored tips for maintaining gum health.
