gum disease Palm Harbor Gum Disease in Palm Harbor

Hearing that you have periodontal disease or gum disease in Palm Harbor can be very upsetting. Here at Prestige Dentistry, we are committed to educating and assisting patients in preventing gum disease in Palm Harbor. If you discover that you already have gum disease, don’t despair. We can help you.

First, we’ll work to identify if you have the disease by examining your symptoms. Some warning signs of gum disease are bleeding gums, swollen gums, receding gums, bad breath that won’t go away, loose teeth, or sensitive teeth. If we notice that you are presenting symptoms, then we will move forward with a treatment plan. Here are some additional steps to help you heal and to prevent gum disease in the future.

  • Brush at least two times a day – morning and night
  • Brush with fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss at least once a day
  • Visit dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings
  • Use a fluoride rinse before brushing
  • Avoid between-meal snacking
  • Avoid tobacco products

In order to treat gum disease in Palm Harbor, we offer our patients solutions such as scaling, root planing, antibiotics, and oral surgery. Dr. Pielak understands that gum disease can sneak up on you. Regular check-ups and thorough oral hygiene are essential for preventing the pain and health issues associated with periodontal disease. Gum disease can be successfully treated, but avoiding it is clearly the best solution.

Whether you are just being diagnosed, working to undo problems of the past, or trying to prevent gum disease for the future, Dr. David Pielak has the answers. We realize that most of our new patients come to us by word-of-mouth referrals and patient testimonials, so if this is your first time hearing of us, we urge you to give us a try. At our practice, we pride ourselves on our chair-side manner, dental skill, the services we offer, a convenient location, a safe atmosphere, short wait times, and availability of dental financing. Dr. Pielak is equipped with the education and experience to care for a wide variety of patients’ dental needs including implant dentistry, teeth whitening, and porcelain veneers.
