Gum Disease Therapy in Lathrup Village
Halting the Progression of Gum Disease and Renewing Oral Health
Did you know that up to 80% of the population unknowingly has some form of periodontal disease, commonly called gum disease? Left untreated, this stealthy offender can cause tooth and gum loss and contribute to heart attack, stroke, and pregnancy complications. The good news is that at Signature Smiles of Southfield you will find help! We use proven therapies to combat gum disease and maximize periodontal health.
Early-stage gum disease, or gingivitis, often presents few or no symptoms. You may notice bleeding when brushing or see red, swollen gums. We can alleviate gingivitis with a deep cleaning and instruction on proper brushing and flossing techniques. Advanced cases of gum disease may benefit from antibiotic therapy. Patients with severe gum disease often find relief with removal of diseased tissue. We'll help you determine which therapy is right for your unique situation and give you practical tips to maintain healthy gums and prevent future damage.
