At Dental Wellness Team, our top rated periodontist in Coral Springs, Dr. Lubin, is here to both diagnose and treat the symptoms of gum disease. If you suffer from swollen, tender, or bleeding gums, receding gums, and bad breath, you could be suffering from the effects of gum disease, a potentially dangerous condition that deteriorates the gum line. When left untreated, infections can develop, which can damage the gum line, as well as the bone that supports it.
At its worst, gum disease can compromise your total health, as it is linked to conditions like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even premature births or low birth weights.
Fortunately, Dr. Lubin and the rest of our gum disease experts are here to assess and treat the signs of gum disease!
Signs Of Gum Disease
Unfortunately, not all gum disease sufferers know that they are suffering from the symptoms until invasive treatment by a gum doctor is required.
That's why, at Dental Wellness Team, our gum specialists take the time to educate you on the signs and symptoms so that you can stop gum disease in its tracks. These signs and symptoms include:
- Loose or separating teeth (when no oral injury is present)
- Swollen, red gums and general mouth pain
- Receding gums
- Bleeding during your oral care routine (twice-daily brushing and flossing)
- Frequent and painful mouth sores
- Hard-to-treat bad breath
- Pus between the teeth and gums
- Ill-fitting dentures and other oral appliances
- Bite alignment changes
If you're concerned you might be experiencing the signs of gum disease, schedule an appointment with our Coral Springs gum specialists. Our team is here to create a personalized treatment plan that is designed to restore your oral health!
At Dental Wellness Team, we perform the following periodontal procedures:
As a first course of action, Dr. Lubin provides non-surgical periodontal therapy to patients in the early stages of gum disease. These non-invasive treatments can stop major health problems like heart disease, pneumonia, and premature labor from occurring!
Our periodontal specialist can design a treatment plan that fits your needs. If you are in the early stages of gingivitis, we offer comfortable laser and non-surgical treatment options.
Gum Graft Surgery
Gum grafting, otherwise known as gum tissue regeneration, is a common periodontal procedure performed to treat gum recession. During the surgery, our gum specialists will repair your soft tissue, allowing it to naturally regenerate over time. If you suffer from chronic gum problems, gum graft surgery can repair the look, feel, and health of your mouth!
LANAP Laser Therapy
At Dental Wellness Team, we use the advanced laser therapy system, LANAP to treat the effects of gum recession. If you have deep gum pockets or have symptoms of moderate to severe periodontal disease, our gum doctors may recommend this high-tech laser treatment.
Dental Crown Lengthening
If you are in the process of a tooth restoration treatment, such as dental implants, dentures, bridges, or crowns, our Coral Springs gum specialists may recommend a dental crown lengthening procedure. Dr. Lubin performs crown lengthening to extend the size or height of the tooth. This process yields a more stable base for a permanent dental crown!
Pocket Reduction Procedures
When damaging tartar and bacteria get deep into your roots, our team may recommend a pocket reduction procedure. Typically, this procedure is a series of surgeries performed to rid your roots of dangerous bacteria.
Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)
At Dental Wellness Team, we recommend that our orally healthy patients come in for a twice-yearly preventive cleaning and exam.
That said, if you have been diagnosed with gum disease, our gum specialists may recommend a more thorough dental cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing. Depending on the progression of your condition, we may recommend you visit us quarterly for deep cleanings.
Root Surface Debridement
Root Surface Debridement (RSD) is a procedure used to clean the root surface of the tooth. Dr. Lubin uses root surface debridement to remove deposits and slow the progression of gum disease.
