What causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, affects most adults at some point in their lives. Gingivitis, the most common type of gum disease, occurs when bacteria infect periodontal tissue. This may result in:

  • Red or swollen gums
  • Bleeding during brushing or flossing
  • Bad breath that does not respond to at-home treatments
  • A chronic bad taste in the mouth

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of gum disease, treatment is essential for preventing future damage. Call our office right away for an exam.

How is Gum Disease treated?

Gingivitis can often be treated through a professional cleaning of the teeth and gums along with a more consistent daily routine. Brushing after every meal and snack, flossing morning and night, and adding an antibacterial mouthwash – sometimes in prescription form – may be all it takes to treat this type of gum disease. Periodontitis will, however, necessitate a more advanced approach.

To treat periodontitis, Dr. Castillo will need to first assess how advanced the disease has become. Depending on the specifics of your infection, periodontal treatment may include therapy to eliminate bacteria, shrink pockets of infection around teeth, and stimulate healthy tissue growth. These benefits become more difficult to achieve the longer periodontitis is allowed to progress. Your best chance for the complete elimination of gum disease is swift treatment.

Depending on your needs, Dr. Castillo can recommend one or more of the following treatments to reverse the effects of gum disease and restore your oral health:

  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Dental Crown Lengthening
  • Gingivectomy
  • Root Surface Debridement
  • Laser Treatment
  • Pocket Reduction
  • Ridge Preservation
  • Bone Grafting

Best Dentist in Pembroke Pines!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Castillo Dental Studio, you will not be disappointed! Dr.Castillo was very thorough and answered all my questions. He explained the best treatment and dental care for me and I can tell he was truly genuine and not just trying to “sell” me all types of services. I have not been to the dentist in years and the whole staff made me feel VERY comfortable and is so friendly. The studio is super clean, its modern and beautifully designed; I'm absolutely in love! Thank you Castillo Dental Studio!!!
