Periodontal Care - Hardy Smiles

Periodontal Care

Your gums are an essential component to your overall dental health. When gums are neglected, they can become susceptible to gum disease, a degenerative condition that can lead to further health problems. We encourage you to maintain excellent oral hygiene and visit Hardy Smiles for regular checkups with our dentist. Dr. James Hardy is happy to provide you with thorough information about periodontal care in Louisburg, North Carolina, to keep your gums healthy.
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition primarily caused by bacteria found in plaque. The bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissues, and when left untreated, can eventually cause the gums to pull away from the teeth. Untreated periodontal disease can result in bone loss, tooth loss, and gum tissue recession.

If your gums are swollen, red, or tender, or if your gums bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. Other common symptoms of gum disease include loose teeth, painful chewing, persistent bad breath, and receding gums that make your teeth appear longer than normal. Following an exam at our office, our doctor and team will be able to determine whether you suffer from periodontal disease.

The treatment for gum disease is based upon your specific dental needs. Depending on the severity of the condition, our doctor may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), or gum surgery. We strive to help you restore your oral health and halt the progress of the disease. For more information on periodontal treatment, we welcome you to call or visit our office soon. We look forward to caring for your smile!
