Have you ever had symptoms of periodontal disease? Periodontal disease is one of the most common dental issues affecting adult patients today. Our Glen Burnie periodontist from Allan D. Schulman DDS & Associates can provide you with the periodontal care you need to get your gums back into their normal state of health. There are several symptoms that serve as indicators to alert you of developing periodontal disease. Such symptoms may include: redness of the gums, pain in the gums, gum tenderness, bleeding from the gums, and gums receding away from the teeth.
If you notice any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Glen Burnie periodontist as soon as possible, as leaving them be will only make them worse and put your teeth and gums at further risk. Upon this initial visit to Allan D. Schulman DDS & Associates, our Glen Burnie periodontist will carefully examine your gums in order to fully evaluate their overall health and if they are in need of treatment. The level of your gum disease’s development will determine which treatment options we recommend for you. For example, for milder cases of gum disease, a simple periodontal cleaning including deep cleaning techniques such as root scaling and planing will be enough to clear the symptoms and get your gums back to health. For more advanced cases, multiple cleanings may be needed over time. In even more advanced cases of periodontal disease, surgical methods such as gum pocket surgery may be recommended. No matter what level of periodontal disease you are dealing with, our Glen Burnie periodontist will assist you in every way possible.
