Did you know that gum disease can harm the health of your whole body in addition to your oral health? That’s why you read so much about and hear so much about the importance of preventive dental care to keep the culprit of periodontal disease at bay. But what can you do if you’re already experiencing early signs of gum disease and are looking for treatment such as scaling and root planing near you? Our multi-specialty team at Dental Partners of Brookline can be your one-stop resource to treat gum disease.
Although gum disease can go undetected unless diagnosed by a dentist near you, some of the most common symptoms that you may notice at home include red, tender, or bleeding gums; gum tissue that appears to be receding; persistent halitosis (bad breath); tooth and jaw aches; and loose teeth. If you notice one or more of these symptoms, it’s time to schedule an appointment with our dentists in Brookline, MA, for a gum disease evaluation.
Keep in mind that gum disease will only worsen over time when left untreated or treated with inferior products. For that reason, it’s recommended that you contact our dentists for evaluation before turning to any over-the-counter treatments that may not be best suited for your stage of periodontal disease. Use our convenient online booking tool now to schedule an appointment time that will work best for your schedule – including evening appointment hours.
Our dentists in Brookline, MA, are committed to helping you maintain the health and beauty of your smile for a lifetime, and scaling and root planing is but one of many procedures that allow them to help you reach this goal too.
