Gum Treatment Wake Forest

What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, which is often preventable by regular flossing, is caused by plaque build up below the gumline. This buildup can then cause infection and lead to a variety of symptoms, including red, swollen gums, chronic bad breath, pain along the gumline, and bleeding while eating and chewing. Ultimately, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, and it is the number one cause of it in American adults.

What Can Be Done?

We urge any patients experiencing these warning signs to contact us immediately. We’ll diagnose the problem and treat the infection before it can cause further damage. Our skilled dentists will remove the plaque, clean the root surfaces, and apply antibiotics to the infection when necessary. We’ll also take additional precautions to help prevent recurrences.

Robbie smith DDS is also proud to now offer Laser Therapy services which aid in many periodontal and gum related services and procedures. To schedule an appointment with our general oral hygiene team, call or submit an appointment request form today!

"Very positive experience. I have been going to the same dentist for 28 years before moving to Wake Forest. Needless to say, I was not looking forward to the transition. My dental hygienist was particularly nice and thoughtfully went over with me what she was doing. It is a great environment and a very friendly staff." - - Wake Forest, NC
