Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontal (gum) disease currently affects some 75 percent of American adults, and it’s the leading cause of tooth loss in patients over the age of 35. That’s a concerning figure, especially when you know that periodontal disease has been linked to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.
Signs you may be suffering from gum disease include:
- Chronic bad breath
- Bleeding gums
- Gum recession
- And more…
Dr. Obholz provides periodontal disease treatment in Washington DC. Mild forms of gum disease are known as gingivitis and can be reversed with extra-diligent brushing and flossing. Moderate cases of the condition are reversed with a deep cleaning known as scaling and root planing, which removes plaque and tartar buildup from above and below the gum line. Antibiotic treatment can also help treat gum disease. In the most advanced cases, we may partner with a periodontist to help you enjoy healthy gums once again.
Dr. Obholz wants her patients to have smiles that are healthy and beautiful. Individual services in cosmetic dentistry can help to achieve the dazzling teeth you’ve desired, but if multiple smile imperfections are impeding on your self-confidence, a smile makeover can help! It’s a multi-faceted approach that can improve the form and function of your damaged or imperfect teeth.
A smile makeover may include a combination of any of the following treatments:
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Dental implants for tooth replacement
- Invisalign, clear braces for adults
- Porcelain veneers
- Teeth whitening
Whatever your smile requires, you and Dr. Obholz will thoroughly discuss your desires and treatment options to come up with a plan that’s just right for you.
