Dr. Natasha Lisin-Queen, Suwanee, GA Dentist, Providing Periodontal Treatments
Suwanee, GA dentist, Natasha Lisin-Queen, DMD, offers outstanding treatment and care to patients that experience periodontal disease (gum disease). Patients who suffer from periodontal disease may experience it ranging from simple gum inflammation to major disease that results in the damage of soft tissue and bone that provide support to the teeth. Left untreated, periodontal disease can result in teeth loss.
A major cause of gum disease is poor oral hygiene. Teeth need to be properly brushed and flossed daily and should receive professional examination and cleanings at least twice per year. When these guidelines are not followed, plaque is allowed to form on the teeth along the lines of the gums. Over time, plaque that is not removed through brushing and flossing or professional cleaning may harden and become tartar. Tartar is a substance that can be removed from the teeth only by a professional.
When gum disease is left untreated, it may advance to gingivitis. Gingivitis occurs when tartar is left to form unchecked. Over time, the gums become red, swollen and prone to bleeding easily. At this stage, professional treatment is necessary to prevent the gingivitis from worsening into periodontitis.
Periodontitis is the most advanced form of gum disease. It occurs when gingivitis is not treated in a timely manner. With periodontitis, the gums start pulling away from the teeth and form spaces that are called “pockets.” When a person suffering from periodontal disease does not receive accurate treatment, the bones, gums, and tissues that support the teeth can be destroyed. Periodontal disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Causes that contribute to the development of periodontal disease include smoking, diabetes, and hormonal changes in females. Certain medications can cause overgrowth of abnormal gum tissue, which can make it difficult for people to keep their teeth clean. People receiving treatment for AIDS also become prone to developing gum disease.
