Gum Disease Treatment in Newtown, Connecticut

Gum disease is a progressive infection that affects nearly half of all American adults. It’s so common that it impacts most people at some point in their lives, but that doesn’t make gum disease any less serious. At Diamond Dental, we offer gum disease treatment and prevention to keep your smile healthy and bright.

What Causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease is caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. The buildup of plaque and tartar is typically the result of poor oral hygiene and missing regularly scheduled cleanings. Other health or lifestyle factors can increase the patient’s risk of developing gum disease. These factors include family history, stress, smoking, tobacco use, certain medications, diabetes, or hormonal changes. It is often associated with the changes experienced during puberty, pregnancy or menopause.

Untreated gum disease has been linked to increased patient risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, cancer, pneumonia, and osteoporosis. Gum disease can also cause infections in the jawbones, leading to tooth loss. Prevention, early detection, and treatment are important to maintaining the patient’s overall well-being. Symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen, or puffy gums
  • Tender gums
  • Bleeding when brushing and flossing
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gum tissue
  • Loose or shifting teeth

How Can I Prevent Gum Disease?

You can prevent gum disease by practicing excellent at-home oral hygiene and scheduling regular cleanings with Dr. Vedullapalli. Cleanings every six months can prevent the development of plaque and tartar, keeping your teeth healthy and reducing your risk of developing gum disease.

How is Gum Disease Treated?

Our award-winning dental team performs scaling and root planing procedures to prevent or treat gum disease. This cost-effective, non-surgical treatment removes plaque above and below the gumline. To reduce possible discomfort and make patients as relaxed as possible, we will administer a local anesthetic. Be sure to schedule regular cleanings, and stay on top of your at-home dental hygiene, as this is the best way to prevent gum disease.

Diamond Dental review 1
Dr. V and Dr. Wang are both the most considerate, gentle, and caring dentists I have ever met. They both care so deeply for their patients. Very understanding and would do anything for anyone. Both assistants are wonderful as well. Always smiling, cheerful, and brilliant. Before coming to Diamond Dental I was petrified of any dentist I went to. Being here with them erases the fear. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

Dr. V and Jorge are so incredibly nice! The practice is very clean and the front office staff are friendly and efficient. They gave me a topical numbing ointment on my gums before starting the cleaning which was really thoughtful. They also recommended a bunch of restaurants in the area to try. I'm looking forward to my next appointment!
