It’s estimated that more than half of all adults in the U.S. have gingivitis. Gingivitis, in some cases, can lead to gum disease and other health problems.
Gum disease can cause bleeding, swelling, bad breath, pain, receding gums and tooth loss. Your oral health is the beginning point for your whole body’s health and wellness. Dr. Krause examines gum health at every 6-month check-up. If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, let us know. We will decide what is the best form of treatment to restore your gums to optimum health.
Gum disease causes a buildup of bacteria between the teeth and gums. Treatment typically involves clearing the buildup at the root of the teeth through deep cleaning like scaling and root planing. We may also suggest a specific toothpaste and mouth rinse or prescribe antibiotics to fight infections.
