Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is caused by plaque buildup in your mouth and can cause gum inflammation (gingivitis) or a more severe infection causing inflammation around the tooth (periodontitis).


Symptoms of periodontal disease may include:

  • inflamed gums
  • bad breath
  • sensitive teeth
  • receding gums
  • loose teeth

Treatment of periodontal disease may include:

  • a deep cleaning
  • antibiotics to help control infection
  • periodontal surgery
  • bone or gum grafts

Along with treatment, good daily hygiene of the teeth is strongly recommended to help maintain a healthy smile.


Dr. Elzbieta W. Basil, DMD is gentle and compassionate, and along with our excellent hygienists, is prepared to take very good care of all your periodontal needs.
