Dr. Ghada S. Massabni of Agape Dentist in Woburn, MA is proud to assist patients with gum disease treatment. We use procedures to treat gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, so you do not suffer from tissue damage and tooth loss. If your gums are red, swollen, or bleeding, it is time to see the experts at Agape Dentist.
Gum disease is a degenerative condition primarily caused by bacteria found in plaque. The bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissue. If left untreated, the gums can pull away from the teeth, resulting in bone loss, tooth loss, or gum tissue recession.
If you are experiencing swollen, red, tender gums, or if your gums are bleeding easily, you may be experiencing gum disease. Other common symptoms include loose teeth, painful chewing, persistent bad breath, and receding gums that make your teeth appear longer than normal.
Our team of professionals determines whether you suffer from periodontal disease. If you do, the treatment is based upon your specific dental needs. Dr. Massabni may recommend additional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling, root planing, or gum surgery.
We work hard to help you restore your oral health and stop any progress of gum disease. We are proud to assist patients from Woburn, Winchester, Stoneham, Burlington, Wakefield, and the surrounding areas. We will be happy to answer any questions that you have about gum disease treatment before, during, or after your appointment.
