Gum Therapy in Brandon, Flowood & Jackson, MS

Protect your smile and your health. Our dentists can help.

The Winning Smile Dental Group can help you win the fight against gum disease.

Take Control Of Your Gum Health

Beautiful and healthy teeth are just part the equation when it comes to your oral health. Too many people overlook the health and importance of their gums. Your gums provide stability and support for your teeth and act as a protective seal between your teeth and jaw bone.

Unfortunately, the foods we eat and drink, our genetics, and our brushing habits can all contribute to bacterial growth on our teeth and gums. As these bacteria grow and multiply, the result can be painful and dangerous infections in your gum tissue, commonly called periodontitis or gingivitis.

Do you suffer from these common symptoms of gum disease:

  • Bleeding gums after brushing or flossing
  • Gums that are sore, tender, or swollen
  • Chronic bad breath or dry mouth
  • Sensitive teeth or pain when chewing

If you’d like to talk about your gum disease risk and how we can help, contact The Winning Smile Dental Group today.

DID YOU KNOW:

Gum disease isn’t something to ignore. More and more research is showing a strong link between periodontal disease and increased risk of:

  • Heart disease and heart attacks
  • High blood pressure and stroke
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Diabetes and diabetic complications

In addition, untreated gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss and irreversible bone loss in the jaw.

How Our Dentists Treat Gum Disease

At The Winning Smile Dental Group, our dentists believe it’s better to prevent gum disease in the first place. That’s why we’ll do everything we can to help you reduce your risk and maintain excellent gum health for life.

During your regular dental checkups and exams, our dentists will evaluate your gum health and take measurements of your gums. This allows us to track your gum health over time and see if you’re at risk of contracting gum disease. Also during your dental cleanings, your hygienist will remove bacteria buildup along the gum line and in places where it’s hard to brush and floss.

However, when bacteria take hold above the gumline, treatment may be needed to eliminate the infection and prevent further damage to your health.

What To Expect From Gum Therapy

We’ll gently clean your teeth above the gumline where bacteria hide. To ensure your comfort, we can offer you sedation options before and during your gum disease treatment.

Gum therapy removes plaque and tartar from both above and below the gumline, stopping gum disease in its tracks It’s an investment in the health of your teeth and gums.

More questions? We can help

What does gum disease look like?

Visual signs of gum disease often include red, inflamed gums or gums that bleed every time you brush and floss your teeth Your gums may also appear to be pulling away from your teeth (making your teeth look longer).

Can you reverse gum disease?

Gum disease can be reversed only while in its early stage — called gingivitis. However, once the disease has progressed to periodontitis, it cannot be reversed, only slowed down. This is why it’s so important to keep up with your routine dental hygiene appointments, brush your teeth twice a day, and floss every day.

How long does it take for gums to heal after deep cleaning?

You can expect your gums and teeth to feel a little sensitive for a couple of days. Sticking to soft foods and avoiding extra hot or cold beverages is a great way to ease any discomfort. Our dentists may advise you to avoid sharp or sticky foods for two weeks after a deep cleaning. You’ll be back to normal in no time at all. 

Can gum disease affect pregnancy?

Periodontitis has been associated with poor pregnancy outcomes, including preterm birth and low birth weight. If you are pregnant, make sure to let your dentist know so we can evaluate your gum health and create a personalized plan for keeping your gums healthy throughout pregnancy.
