Gum Disease

Effective Gum Disease Treatment at Stephen Cheung DDS: Your Pathway to Healthy Gums

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common but often overlooked condition affecting oral health. At Stephen Cheung DDS, we are dedicated to diagnosing, treating, and helping you manage gum disease to ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Recognizing the Signs of Gum Disease

The earliest stage of gum disease is gingivitis, which is reversible if diagnosed and treated promptly. Watch out for:

  • Red, swollen gums
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Sensitive teeth

The Importance of Early Intervention

Ignoring gum disease can lead to more severe conditions, including tooth loss and systemic health issues like cardiovascular disease. Early treatment is crucial to prevent complications.

Treatment Options for Gum Disease

At Stephen Cheung DDS, we offer a range of treatments tailored to your specific needs, including:

  • Scaling and Root Planing: Deep cleaning below the gumline
  • Medication: Antibiotics or antimicrobial mouthwashes
  • Surgical Treatments: For advanced cases, such as flap surgery or bone grafts

What to Expect During Treatment

  1. Initial Consultation: Comprehensive examination and X-rays
  2. Treatment Planning: Customized plan based on your oral health status
  3. Procedure: Conducted with utmost care and with minimally invasive techniques when possible
  4. Follow-Up: Regular check-ups to monitor progress and adjust treatment as needed

Post-Treatment Care

Maintaining good oral hygiene is vital after treatment to prevent recurrence. This includes:

  • Regular brushing and flossing
  • Professional cleanings and check-ups
  • Specialized mouthwash, as recommended
