What is Gum Disease?

Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is an infection of the tissues surrounding the teeth. Severe periodontal problems can lead to tooth loss. Gum disease is caused by plaque that forms on the teeth, housing billions of bacteria. If not removed, it will lead to the formation of pockets between the teeth and gums, and will also cause the gums to recede.

Gum disease can often advance before the patient realizes their gums are infected. This is because, in its early stages, gum disease symptoms present without pain. However, if you notice any of the following signs, please visit our Longview office as soon as possible. Our trained dental professionals can evaluate your teeth and gums for periodontal disease and treat it before the condition progresses to its advanced stage.

Signs of gum disease include:

  • Gums that are red or swollen
  • Bleeding gums
  • Tenderness
  • Receding gums
  • Loosened teeth
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Change in the fit of your dentures
  • Change in the fit of your dentures

What Causes Gum Disease?

At Lower Columbia Oral Health, we provide comprehensive and state-of-the-art gum disease treatment to reverse the effects of the infection and restore your oral health. Treatment usually includes a deep cleaning (known as a scaling and root planing) to remove the plaque and tartar and prevent future infection. We may also remove and replace the diseased gum tissue and repair the damage done to your teeth. Depending on the severity of your condition, we may also elect to perform regenerative procedures such as bone grafting to restore that jawbone tissue lost to infection.

Here is a complete list of the procedures we offer:

  • Scaling and Root Planing
  • Gingivectomy
  • Gum Graft Surgery
  • Gum Peeling Treatment
  • Dental Crown Lengthening
  • Root Surface Debridement
  • Cutting-Edge Laser Gum Treatment

  • Osseous Surgery
  • Ridge Augmentation and Preservation
  • Regenerative Procedures
  • Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
  • Sinus Lift
  • Autogenous Bone Grafting

At Lower Columbia Oral Health, we perform all types of soft tissue grafting. Dr. Wise offers free gingival grafts to help patients improve the appearance of suboptimal implants placed by other dentists. We will also correct the smile line and even the gum line using laser dentistry and traditional crown lengthening technique for a beautiful, aesthetically-pleasing smile.
