Periodontal Treatment to Restore Your Smile Health

Most patients spend time thinking about the condition of their pearly whites, but not as much when it comes to their gum health. Yet, without the support of your gums, the teeth can become loose, fall out, and result in bone loss. For Merit Dental patients in Orem, Utah with gum disease, Dr. Dennis DeLoach and Dr. Dallin DeLoach offer periodontal treatment to restore their oral health.

Healthy gums can be stymied by gum disease. When this happens, infected gum tissue develops from the bacteria in dental plaque. Plaque is the sticky film you remove when you brush and floss your teeth every day. And if this bacterial film isn’t removed through daily oral care coupled with regular dental cleanings, gum disease can harm your smile.

Signs that you may have gum disease include the following:

  • Pain whenever you chew.
  • Bad breath that just won’t go away.
  • Teeth that feel loose.
  • Swollen, bleeding, or red gums.
  • Teeth appearing longer because of receding gums.

If the above symptoms are sounding all too familiar, you may be struggling with gum disease. Please call 801-375-9511 to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced dentists for treatment. At Merit Dental, treatment for gum disease may include increased dental cleanings, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), improved at-home oral hygiene care, antibiotic treatment, or gum surgery.

Drs. DeLoach and DeLoach along with our dental team are always happy to help you keep your smile healthy in Orem, Utah. We look forward to helping you achieve the healthy smile you deserve!
