Caring for Your Gum Disease

Posted .

If you are struggling with gum disease, then it is vital to get the help you need right away. That is why our professional dental team here at Rimrock Dental of Redmond in Redmond, Oregon, is happy to help you with your gum disease, so you can reverse this condition before you suffer painful consequences.

Gum disease can cause many things like tooth loss, bleeding or swelling gums, tender gums, and even bone loss. These conditions are extremely serious, which is why immediate treatment is needed. To get properly diagnosed, make sure you come in to visit Dr. Jade Cherrington as soon as possible, so you can find out which treatment option is right for you.

Treatments can include many things from root canals and deep cleanings. However, there are things you can do on your own to treat gum disease, which include brushing and flossing every day, eating a healthy diet, using fluoride in your toothpaste, and avoiding all tobacco products. Having a healthy oral health routine is essential to fighting gum disease.

If you need help treating your gum disease, please call us today at 541-699-4200 to set up an appointment with our dentist. Our friendly and professional dental team is happy to care for your smile and oral health care needs.
