Understanding the Stages of Gum Disease

 Gum disease progresses through various stages, each presenting specific symptoms and requiring different treatment approaches:

  1. Gingivitis: The initial stage of gum disease, characterized by inflammation, redness, and bleeding during brushing or flossing, results from plaque buildup at the gumline. Gingivitis is reversible with proper oral hygiene and professional dental cleanings.
  2. Periodontitis: If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, where the inflammation spreads below the gumline, causing the gums to separate from the teeth and form periodontal pockets. This stage requires more comprehensive periodontal treatment to halt its progression and prevent tooth loss.
  3. Advanced Periodontitis: In this severe stage, the gum tissue and bone supporting the teeth are significantly damaged, leading to tooth loss or the need for extractions. Advanced periodontitis necessitates aggressive periodontal treatment to save the remaining teeth and restore oral health.

Cutting-Edge Periodontal Treatments at Boulder Periodontics

Our team is dedicated to offering the latest, evidence-based treatment options to combat gum disease effectively:

  1. Scaling and Root Planing: This deep-cleaning procedure involves the removal of plaque and tartar deposits from above and below the gumline (scaling) and the smoothing of tooth roots to eliminate bacterial toxins (root planing). It is often the first line of treatment for periodontitis.
  2. Periodontal Maintenance: Following initial periodontal treatment, it is crucial to perform ongoing maintenance cleanings every three to four months to prevent the recurrence of gum disease and maintain optimal oral health.
  3. Laser Periodontal Therapy: Utilizing advanced dental lasers, this minimally invasive and highly precise therapy eradicates the bacteria residing in periodontal pockets and promote gum reattachment to the teeth.
  4. Gum Grafting and Bone Regeneration: For patients who have experienced significant gum or bone loss due to advanced periodontitis, surgical procedures such as gum grafting and bone regeneration can help restore the gumline and bone support around the teeth.
