Gum Disease Treatment

It is not uncommon to have gum disease. In fact, studies show that an average adult usually develops gum disease at least once in their lifetime. Gum disease can range from mild to severe – from a simple gum inflammation to a more severe disease that can cause damage to the soft tissues and bones that support the teeth.

Poor oral hygiene can result in gum problems, and it can be worrisome since it can be linked to health conditions like diabetes and increased risk of heart disease. If you believe that you have gum disease, our dentists at Napa Valley Dental Group can evaluate your gums and provide treatment if needed.

Some of the symptoms you may experience include swollen and bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, pain when chewing, loose and sensitive teeth, and visible pus surrounding your teeth.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, you need to immediately schedule an appointment with a qualified dentist. Here at Napa Valley Dental Group, we provide treatment to patients with gum problems.

Here’s how it works:

  • If this is your first visit, we will check your dental and medical history to determine if there are factors that may contribute to your risk of gum disease.
  • Examine your gums using a dental ruler called a “probe” to measure the depth of your gum pockets if there are any.
  • An X-ray is also usually taken to check if the disease has already affected the bones underneath your teeth. Gum disease can cause bone loss if not treated immediately.
  • Your dentist might also perform a deep-cleaning method called scaling and root planing. This procedure involves scraping off the tartar or calcified deposits in your gum lines. It gets rid of the rough spots on your teeth where germs gather, causing infection to your gums.
  • A prescription medication may also be given to you to treat the condition. If your gum problem has already progressed, dental surgery might be needed. Flap surgery is performed if the inflammation persists even after deep cleaning and medical treatment.

If you think you are experiencing any of the symptoms of gum disease as stated above, see your dentist immediately before the problem gets worse. If not treated, you could lose your teeth.

I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
