Periodontal disease can sneak up on you, if you aren’t diligent with your oral hygiene or are predisposed to it. If you struggle with any of the following symptoms, contact Dr. Liao and the staff at Sunrise Dental to correct the issue as soon as possible:
The root cause of periodontal disease is bacteria. Your mouth contains natural bacteria that is both good and bad. Unfortunately, the bad bacteria far outweigh the good bacteria, which is why proper oral hygiene is so important. Sometimes this disease develops from poor hygiene, other times it comes from genetics.
Dr. Liao and his staff check for any signs of periodontal disease at every regular dental check-up. If he finds anything, he can start treating you right away. By discovering and treating periodontal disease in its earliest stage, you can avoid serious long-term consequences, like tooth loss.
Tartar removal is usually an important part of periodontics, and can be done during your regular teeth cleanings. Dr. Liao may also need to smooth the teeth and root surfaces to properly treat periodontal disease. Medicinal irrigation and topical antibiotics can also be effective ways to deal with periodontal disease.
If you have questions about how to treat your periodontal disease at home, contact Dr. Liao. There may be something he can do for you at an office visit.
Proper oral hygiene and regularly scheduled visits with Dr. Liao will help you fight the good fight and keep periodontal disease at bay. When brushing and flossing aren’t enough, come in for a visit and Dr. Liao can help.
