Dentist, Dr. Jacqueline Subka, urges all individuals take signs of potentially undiagnosed, untreated gum disease seriously. Uncontrolled gum disease has been linked not just to oral health problems, but to systemic concerns including high blood pressure, heart disease and some cancers. Plus, it can pose a serious risk to those with Type 2 diabetes. The only way to reduce the risks associated with gum disease is to get immediate treatment from a certified dental health professional.
Gum disease has many known symptoms, although people may ignore them for long periods of time. The most common signs of gum disease that bring new patients to Dr. Subka’s practice include bad breath, swollen gums, tender gums, red gums, loose teeth and bleeding gums in Calabasas, CA. After performing a diagnosis, she can determine the presence of gum disease-related bacteria. Following diagnosis, Dr. Subka can then help patients customize effective treatment plans.
Treatments available for patients with gum disease include scaling and root planing, as well as minimally invasive laser gum therapy. Scaling and root planing involves pulling back the gums before using advanced equipment to carefully remove unhealthy, damaged hard and soft tissues. She may also smooth any rough tooth or bone surfaces to lessen the likelihood of further bacterial build-up. After the site has been deep cleaned, the gums are reattached to encourage protection and regrowth around the tooth.
Laser gum therapy is a gum surgery alternative that uses laser technology to achieve the same, if not improved, results without cutting or stitches. Using a dental laser, Dr. Subka precisely eradicates disease-causing bacteria and unhealthy tissue while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. A less invasive procedure offers a more comfortable experience and faster healing times.
After either treatment, any patient with gum disease should continue to receive periodontal maintenance appointments to ensure long-term health and reduce the chance of reoccurrence or worsening symptoms. Anyone who presents signs of gum disease including swollen or bleeding gums in Calabasas, CA, can call Dr. Subka’s office for an initial examination at 805-373-1919.
