Periodont is the soft tissue structure that keeps your teeth inside the jaw. This soft tissue needs care. Regular dental visits with simple teeth cleaning will insure that you are giving proper care to your gums. Gum disease is a silent killer. Most patients are unaware of the signs, and sometimes they do not even feel any discomfort. Our job is to protect your gums by keeping the area clean and deposit free, so gum disease will not progress. Prevention is the key, and it is very easy to accomplish.
If you already have gum disease do not panic yet. There are several stages of gum disease. The process that only involves soft tissue is known to be gingivitis, which is easily reversible. However if the disease has already progressed to underlining bone structures, complex treatment methods should be utilized.
If you experience bleeding on your gums or swelling, please do not hesitate to visit Dr. Hovsepyan. She will draft a custom tailored plan for your needs.
