Gum Disease Treatment Jacksonville FL

Prevent Tooth Loss
But There is Good News
With advanced periodontal disease, the treatment is surgical. Gum surgery is never fun, but it is almost always successful in controlling the condition, and it’s usually covered by common insurance plans. With mild periodontal disease, there are very effective NON-surgical procedures which, coupled with improved dental hygiene, can virtually halt the spread of the disease. This, too, is usually covered under most dental insurance plans.

What’s So Bad About Losing a Tooth?
Accidents and other trauma may lead to missing teeth, but the most common reason people lose a tooth is gum disease and/or decay. It might surprise you to learn that losing even a single tooth can cause the other teeth to shift and move around, which makes it difficult to chew and affects your ability to absorb nutrients from your food. Other negative results: your face will change shape, often looking “sunken,” aging you prematurely. Missing teeth also affect your speech. Difficulty chewing may cause you to favor softer foods and more carbohydrates, which can lead to weight gain. The best solution for missing teeth is dental implants. An implant can replace one tooth or many. They can be made to look so natural that even a dentist has to look hard to tell the difference.
