Reclaim Your Healthy Smile with Southampton Dental Smiles!

Gum disease, the leading cause of adult tooth loss, affects one in two adults over 30 in the United States. But the good news is, it's preventable! At Southampton Dental Smiles, we offer a comprehensive range of services to help you maintain optimal periodontal health and enjoy a smile that looks, feels, and functions at its best.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease affects the hard and soft tissues surrounding and supporting your teeth. Harmful bacteria in plaque and tartar cause this condition, which often progresses painlessly. Early detection through regular checkups, professional cleanings, and routine care is crucial.

Look out for these signs of gum disease:

Good oral health is vital not only for your teeth and gums but also for your overall well-being. Gum disease is linked to conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and respiratory problems. We emphasize prevention, early detection, and timely treatment to ensure your optimal periodontal health.

What is Gingivitis?

Gingivitis is the initial stage of gum disease, often unnoticed due to a lack of discomfort. Signs include bleeding, redness, inflammation, or tenderness in the gums when brushing. Early treatment can reverse the course and prevent permanent damage.

What is Periodontitis?

When untreated, gingivitis advances to periodontitis, leading to the breakdown of connective tissue and bone supporting your teeth. Periodontal treatment aims to stop disease progression and restore tooth support through medications, gum surgery, bone, and tissue grafts.

Let Us Help You Maintain Optimal Periodontal Health!

At Southampton Dental Smiles, we provide personalized, state-of-the-art solutions to ensure healthy gums and a functional, attractive smile. Our advanced technology and treatment methods address various periodontal conditions and needs.

How is Gum Disease Treated?

Treatment depends on factors like disease stage, tissue damage, oral health, and medical conditions. Non-surgical periodontal treatment includes deep dental cleanings, scaling, root planing, and medication. Periodontal surgery, like flap surgery, reduces pocket depth and prevents further damage.

We also offer laser technology for select periodontal procedures, providing efficient treatment options. If you have questions or concerns, our team is here to guide you through the process.
