Numerous types of oral disorders, for example, gum disease, might ultimately impact a person's overall health. Often referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is a progressive oral infection that affects a diverse number of patients annually. Attributable to damaging dental bacteria, gum disease is considered a principal cause of loose or missing teeth in older individuals and has been associated with a range of worrisome overall health problems. These bacteria reside within plaque deposits that accumulate on the teeth and produce toxins, which will start to harm the gumline, jawbone, and various other tissues that secure every tooth in its proper place.

Gum disease is essentially classified into three progressive levels; the beginning phase of gum disease is gingivitis, followed by periodontitis. The last and most dangerous level of the disorder is called advanced periodontitis. Diagnosing and managing periodontal disease as early as possible can end the process and safeguard your health. For those who have signs, like swollen or red gums, bleeding while toothbrushing or flossing, or persistent bad breath (also called halitosis), periodontal disease might be affecting their oral wellness.

Our team at Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates offers several effective solutions to address periodontal disease, regardless of its phase. Call our office in Ashburn, VA soon to set up your biannual comprehensive examination and discover your solutions to halt periodontal disease.

Diagnosing and managing periodontal disease when the first symptoms arise is critical to conserving the state of your smile. To learn if periodontal disease is impacting your oral wellness, our dental professionals will use a tiny device to assess the gaps separating your gum tissue and teeth. If these gaps are more than three millimeters in-depth, it might be a cause for concern. Dental x-rays will also help Dr. Claustro gauge the amount of jawbone securing each tooth and find out if a more advanced stage of periodontal disease has set in.

At Joanna Claustro DMD & Associates, we utilize the latest tests to detect your current phase of periodontal disease and will determine an appropriate course for care. The beginning stage of gum disease (gingivitis) is frequently taken care of through thorough cleaning and better at-home dental hygiene. To manage periodontitis, the following stage of gum disease, SRP (occasionally known as scaling and root planing) procedures are done and can be paired with externally applied antibiotics. Advanced-phase instances of gum disease may be best managed via a more invasive option, including flap surgery and bone transplant methods.

Got down to the cause of a problem I was having. Very good experience overall. As usual.

Dr. Claustro, Aubrey, and the hygienists were amazing! You can feel that the warm, family friendly, welcoming environment my family and I enjoyed is who they are. This is only matched by the high quality care, attention to detail and professionalism I experienced. You can tell they care about each person who comes through the door from her youngest patients on up. I would highly recommend the whole family giving this dentists office a try. You will be glad you did.
