ABOUT GUM DISEASE

A healthy heart is essential to get through a hard day’s work, or climbing a fourteener, and even just keeping up with your kids or grandkids – all important parts of our culture here in Greeley. Healthy gums are, of course, a part of your oral health, but did you know that they also impact nearly every other system in your body – including your heart!

If you have been tuned into the news lately, you have probably caught a few facts about the connection between your oral health and your overall health. Research continuously identifies more links between periodontal gum disease and other systemic conditions.

Not only can periodontal disease lead to tooth loss, but it also dramatically impacts your overall health. This is why we place such an emphasis on helping our patients eliminate gum disease.

DIAGNOSING GUM DISEASE 

Symptoms of gum disease start with mild irritation and progress over time to include some of the following signs:

  • Bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth
  • Bad breath resulting from bacterial growth
  • Red and irritated tissue
  • Recession (gums pulling away from your teeth)
  • Tooth mobility
  • Tooth loss

Each patient who comes to our Greeley, CO dental office will receive a periodontal evaluation to help us determine the type of dental cleaning that will work best for you. We start by looking for signs of inflammation and measuring any pocketing between your teeth and gums.

Healthy gums fit your teeth snugly and hug tightly against the base of your teeth. As gum infections develop, your gums may begin to pull away from your tooth, creating a harbor for bacteria and infection.

Treating Gum Disease

  • EARLY STAGES OF GUM DISEASE

    When we catch gum disease in the early stages, called gingivitis, we can often address your condition with a thorough dental cleaning and improved home care. Our hygienists will remove tartar, provide proper oral hygiene instruction, and follow up with you to make sure your gums heal properly. If you believe you are developing gingivitis or gum disease please give our office a call so Dr. Taher Dhoon and our professional team can help you get back on track.

  • TREATMENT

    As gum disease progresses into periodontitis, we may need to use a series of specialized dental cleanings to remove bacteria and diseased tissue. Often this will occur over the course of several appointments and require ongoing care three to four times per year. With your commitment to good home care, you can actually experience dramatic improvement. The gums and bone are the foundations for the teeth, and keeping them healthy will significantly increase your quality of life.

  • AFTER TREATMENT

    Once you have had gum disease, you will always be more prone to a reoccurrence. Our team will remain vigilant and recommend an appropriate dental cleaning schedule and any additional oral hygiene tips that will help keep the infection at bay. At Greeley Dental Care, we maintain the highest level of genuine patient care and will always make you feel welcome and well cared for. We look forward to working with you and your family.

  • I love this office. They are always so nice and so sweet and they’re very professional. And they are wonderful with my six-year-old who is terrified to see the dentist. They always try to work on financials if you need help which I need a procedure done and they always explain everything step-by-step while you’re going to the visit. The transition to this new dentist has been nothing but awesome.

  • One of the best dentist I've gone too! Honest about what was really going on in my mouth. Easiest and most gentle one for filling and crown. Helping me save my dental health in being proactive on how I take care of my teeth from this point. Fixed my front teeth that were damaged by a previous dentist. Dr. Dhoon is quite an "artist" with teeth!! The office staff is very caring and helpful too.

  • Great staff and Dr. Dhoon is wonderful. My 8 yr old daughter had to have some minor work done after her 1st visit and being the last appointment, Dr. Dhoon and Isabel were more than happy to stay later to complete her treatment. I highly recommend Greeley Dental Care. Great job Isabel and Dr. Dhoon. My family and I look forward to future visits!
