Gum Disease Treatment

Infection of the gum tissue can damage the teeth and bones in your mouth. Periodontal disease is responsible for the majority of tooth loss, affecting over 50% of adults over the age of 30. Bacteria, plaque and tartar all contribute to gum disease and associated health issues. At Majestic Smile Studio, we provide gum disease treatment for patients at our dental center in Yorba Linda, CA.

Gum disease occurs when the gum tissue becomes infected. If plaque is not removed from the teeth with brushing and flossing, it can harden into tartar. Bacteria flourish when tartar is present on the teeth, irritating and infecting the gum tissue around the teeth. Over time, the gums will recede away from the teeth, and eventually, the gum tissue and jaw bone deteriorate from the effects of gum disease.

Periodontal or gum disease can cause receding, swollen and tender gums. Patients can also experience bad breath and bone loss, which can lead to lost teeth. Gum disease has overall health impacts as well, increasing the risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and other health conditions.

Controlling Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease cannot be cured once it damages the oral tissues, but it can be controlled through treatment. Patients with gum disease can have improved symptoms with deep cleanings to remove tartar from the teeth. Root scaling and planing can be performed to scrape away tartar below the gum line. Treatments and dental cleanings at our office combined with improved daily oral hygiene can help control the bacteria that can infect your gum tissues.

Gum disease treatment requires a concentrated effort to stop the injection. Patients with periodontitis may need deep dental cleanings 3-4 times per year and specialized home oral care. Dr. Gutierrez and our hygienists at Majestic Smile Studio can provide a personalized treatment plan to control gum disease to protect your smile and overall health.

If you have receding or bleeding gums, you may have periodontal disease or gingivitis. To schedule a checkup and periodontal examination, contact us at Majestic Smile Studio in Yorba Linda, CA.

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
