Did you know that your periodontal (gum) health is closely tied to your overall health? It’s true! Research has found a close connection between periodontal disease and serious health conditions such as heart disease, respiratory conditions, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and pregnancy complications. Untreated gum disease can also result in gum tissue recession, tooth loss, and bone loss. Drs. Shad, Richard, and Clive Ingram offer periodontal treatments to help you regain a healthy smile and improve your overall well-being. We invite you to call VIP Smiles at 801-776-3000 to schedule your consultation with our dentists and learn more about gum disease treatments in Syracuse, Utah.
We strive to help you stay in good health by providing high-quality dental care, including periodontal treatment. Periodontal treatment includes a number of services used to treat periodontal disease. Depending on your specific case and the severity of the condition, treatment for gum disease may include additional professional teeth cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene and care, antibiotic treatment, or deep cleanings known as scaling and root planing. The aim of scaling and root planing is to remove bacteria and infected tissues and prevent the condition from progressing further. For more serious cases, our dentists may suggest gum surgery. We are committed to helping you keep your smile healthy.
If your gums are red, swollen, tender, or bleed easily, you may suffer from gum disease. We encourage you to contact our dentists today at our office for more information on gum treatment and to set up your next visit.
