Your gums are an important part of your overall oral health. They are the foundation of a beautiful and healthy smile, and yet some estimates suggest that nearly 80% of Americans have some form of periodontal disease. At Henrich Dental we have the tools and specialized techniques to treat gum problems and restore the health of your mouth.
Even a small problem in the gums can lead to serious complications down the road, so it’s important to get treated as soon as possible.
Dr. Henrich will watch for any symptoms during your regular checkups, but if you begin to notice problems yourself, be sure to contact us immediately. We can provide a deep cleaning, root planing, and scaling as well as remove any bacteria from above and below the gum line.
What to Watch For
There are several signs of impending periodontal disease, including: gums that bleed during a regular teeth brushing; persistent bad breath and a funny taste in the mouth; receding gums; tender gums that are red and swollen; gum pockets; and loose or shifting teeth.
A Complete Solution
At Henrich Dental we focus on providing a complete dental solution that starts with the gums and ends with a beautiful and healthy smile. Contact us today to set up your next appointment at our convenient south Tulsa office.
