Treatment for Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the most common oral health issues which can pose a risk to your teeth, gums and bones. At Dentists on the Square, we have examined countless patients who have suffered from gum disease, despite brushing and flossing every day. There are several causes of gums becoming infected, but the most common reason is poor oral hygiene.

You may not even know you have gum disease until you begin to experience bleeding when brushing or have painful and swollen gums. The best way to avoid complications arising from gum disease is by learning to brush and floss correctly and attending all your routine checkups and general dentistry treatments with Dentists on the Square. We can provide you with the education needed to maintain your overall oral health.

Symptoms and Causes of Periodontal Disease

The main symptoms that you will experience are bleeding, swollen, discolored or receding gums. Poor oral hygiene is the usual suspect when diagnosing periodontal disease. Diet and personal habits can also cause the gums to become infected. The comprehensive exam carried out by Dentists on the Square will allow us to identify the cause and provide effective treatment options.

Our team is also passionate about educating patients on the causes and methods of preventing periodontal disease. We will provide you with treatment and useful advice on how to prevent further flare ups in the future. The oral health of our Philadelphia patients is important to us, so you are guaranteed to receive expert treatment during every visit to our office.

If you suspect you have gum disease, it is important that you seek treatment immediately. Periodontal disease is progressive, which means it can escalate in severity if you do not visit your dentist. Reach out to Dentists on the Square for an appointment today so that we provide you with a quick appointment to reverse the effects of gum disease.

    Dentists on the Square is great. I’ve had a lot of work done, and they are by far the best practice I’ve been to. They are preventative in mindset, which makes a huge difference to minimize issues before they are large scale problems. The team collaborates and they are very attentive. And now I walk out after a cleaning with much whiter teeth! My hygienist is amazing!

    DOTS is fantastic! I’ve been a long time patient and have referred many friends. Their staff and doctors are attentive, caring and always willing to sit down and plan out treatment and talk through your benefits. Thank you!

  • Heidi S.

    They actually have me excited to get implants. The staff is amazing and extremely kind. Very thorough and comprehensible, even with such a detailed process. Thank you!! I’m very happy to have been recommended to come here.

  • Candace V.

    I highly recommend! The staff is really friendly and nice. I had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Roberts and Vince and they are great. I was really nervous to have that type of treatment but they reassured me that I would be okay and made it a good experience. It is so worth it!

  • Angela B.

    My first appointment at DOTS was pretty incredible. I had a traumatic experience at my last dentist three years ago that resulted in my 1) developing severe anxiety around going to the dentist and 2) me putting off my dental health for a while. Everyone at DOTS was incredible and super supportive. Shoutout to the hygienist and dentists there that get their patients through the appointments with humor and professionalism. I think I might actually look forward to the dentist now!

  • Jake P.
