Periodontal Disease in Beachwood, OH

Gum (periodontal) disease is an inflammation in the gums, which can significantly damage your oral health. There are several stages of gum disease, ranging from mild to severe. The first stage is gingivitis, which is brought on by a buildup of plaque under the gumline. Without treatment, gingivitis can develop into the second stage called periodontitis, which impacts the fibers and bone that hold your teeth. Advanced periodontitis is the last stage of gum disease, which may cause loose or lost teeth. To deal with gum disease, Aspire Dental Spa offers both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options, depending on the intensity of the disease, including scaling and root planing, antibiotics, gum surgery, and extractions. When you have symptoms of periodontal disease, contact our Beachwood, OH practice to schedule an exam and consultation with Dr. Lisa Browning.

Periodontal disease treatments will be based on the intensity of the disease. After Dr. Browning diagnoses you with gum disease, she will discuss her recommendations for your treatment plan. For mild cases, scaling and root planing (SRP) is usually done to clean out your pockets of the gums. In more advanced cases, antibiotics can be prescribed along with multiple SRP procedures. Severe cases of gum disease usually require gum surgery, such as pocket reduction or gum grafting.

Periodontal disease can quietly progress, often beginning with subtle symptoms before becoming serious. Some common signs of periodontal gum disease that you should look for include:

  • Persistent bad breath, even with good oral care
  • Gums that are swollen, red, or sensitive
  • Teeth that are loose or moving, especially in later stages
  • Bleeding gums during brushing or flossing
  • Gums receding from the teeth

Dr. Browning is the best dentist I have encountered in my adult years being responsible for my healthcare plans! I left for a minute because I wanted a dentist closer to home- BUT I am back and it was the best decision that I could have ever made for me and my son! I was amazed with all the technology and how professional and knowledgeable her staff was. I also got to see Dr. Browning in her leadership role teaching her team as she was noticing things! She is the truth and I am glad to be back home with the Browning Team!
