Periodontal Disease – Gum Disease
We know that every time we have an important meal we should brush and floss our teeth. When food particles are not properly cleaned from between your teeth and gums with time they will turn into plaque and then to infectious bacteria. Over time the bacteria will attract minerals like Calcium and Magnesium from your saliva and these minerals will mineralize under your gums, protecting the bacteria and allowing it to fester beneath the tissues. Tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue and bone that surrounds your teeth if is not properly treated is a direct result of Periodontal Disease. We often can use a laser or specialized instruments to scale the mineralized formations from below the gumline.
At Lumina Dental in Tampa Bay we offer professional dental cleaning in order to treat any type of Periodontal Disease.
