Gum Disease And Your Health

Your overall health can be enhanced at Hillside Dental when treating gingivitis in Clearfield

Studies show that the list of health issues that are linked to poor oral health are growing rapidly every year. The buildup of bacterial plaque on our teeth when left untreated can cause a number of different dental health issues, including tooth decay and gum disease such as gingivitis. When an individual is suffering from the symptoms of gingivitis, it can lead to a swelling of the gum tissue and even bleeding. If these symptoms progress, the bacterial plaque that builds up in the mouth can eventually infiltrate these vulnerable areas of the mouth and result in a severe gum disease known as periodontal disease. This can drastically affect the gum tissue surrounding the teeth, pulling it away and exposing the underlying bone support. Periodontal disease can cause irreversible damage, and has even been directly linked to a number of health issues that range from heart disease, diabetes, and even premature birth. However, our dentists in Clearfield can provide quality preventative care with regular cleanings, as well as effective treatment options for advanced cases of gum disease. If you are experiencing painful or bleeding gums, we urge you to contact our office today and schedule your consultation so that we can help you regain a healthy smile right away.

Proactive Gum Care

At Hillside Dental, there are a number of ways you can take action in preventing gingivitis in Clearfield

When it comes to effective prevention of gum disease, we highly recommend getting a professional deep cleaning no less than twice a year. Regular quality treatment with our skilled dental staff can keep harmful bacteria from building up on plaque in your mouth, greatly decreasing the risk of tooth decay and infection that leads to periodontal disease. However, the best resources for a healthy mouth always begin at home, and we are available to provide informative tools for building proactive habits that can keep your smile looking and feeling beautiful. Brushing your teeth and flossing after meals helps remove food debris and plaque trapped between gums, decreasing the risk of bacteria building up in hard to reach places. Smoking, dietary choices, age, and even genetics can increase your risk of developing periodontal disease as well, so be sure to talk to our dental professionals if you believe you are prone to any of these factors. Identifying signs of gum disease at an early stage is the key to preventing extensive risks of gingivitis and periodontal disease, that’s why it’s important to call our office at (801) 776-8441 or click the 'appointments' button below and schedule an exam today. We are always happy to help!

"A Deep Cleaning Can Change Everything"

"A Deep Cleaning Can Change Everything"

Our hygienist discusses the best ways to prevent gum disease in Clearfield

"When I have patients that come in for a periodontal deep cleaning, I am sure to take the time to help educate them on the best methods for preventative care and proper oral hygiene from home. Brushing and flossing are the front line of defense against plaque, and making sure to do this regularly after meals and before bed can make the difference between a bright smile and a painful one. Using a quality mouthwash can also help rinse away the debris that our toothbrush may have a hard time breaking away, and I suggest patients exercise this habit regularly as well. Our patients that experience gingivitis and periodontal disease get the best treatment available at Hillside Dental, and yet they always leave with a new understanding of how to move forward with good dental hygiene in order to prevent the discomfort of swollen and bleeding gums once again. If you haven’t received a professional dental cleaning in the last 6 months, I highly recommend calling us to schedule a consultation today."
