Milwaukee area dentist Dr. Tony Cigno shares what gum disease treatments work best when gum disease gets serious.
Greenfield, WI — March 30, 2017 — Wisconsin Dentist Tony Cigno recently published an article titled, “Gum Disease Treatments: When Gum Disease Gets Serious, What Can You Do?”
Nobody likes to hear they’ve got gum disease—especially serious gum disease. After all, as Dr. Cigno says, “Serious gum disease usually requires serious gum disease treatments.”
Serious gum disease that goes untreated can be harmful to health overall. It’s even been associated with heart problems due to prolonged inflammation. Letting it go too long also limits your treatment options.
Severe gingivitis even has its own name—periodontitis. Perhaps surprisingly, the CDC reports nearly ½ of all Americans 30+ have periodontitis. Yet, says Dr. Cigno, this is totally unnecessary. If caught early, gum disease is very easy to treat.
He states, “It simply doesn’t have to get to this point. With all the gum disease treatments available today, it only makes sense to catch gum disease early, fix it, and keep all your own teeth intact.”
Dr. Cigno further dives into information the reader might find helpful in understanding gum disease and gum disease treatments by explaining, in-depth, exactly how it progresses from slight inflammation of the gums to serious periodontitis.
From there, Dr. Cigno discusses non-surgical gum disease treatments like scaling and root planning, as well as other treatments like pocket reduction, gum grafts, and regenerative procedures.
However, as Dr. Cigno adds, “Despite the effectiveness of many gum disease treatments, as with most anything, the best remedy is an ounce of prevention. Taking care of your teeth and gums is the best way to prevent gingivitis and subsequently, prevent periodontitis.”
