Dr. Kyle DeLuca
Periodontal Gum Disease treatment available at Dental Specialists of Doral Group
Periodontal Gum Disease (also known as gum disease or periodontitis) is a common inflammatory condition that affects the surrounding and supporting soft tissues of your tooth, when leave untreated, the gum disease starts affecting your jawbone as an advanced staged of gum disease.
The word “Periodontal” or in other words – around the tooth, is most often preceded by gingivitis which is a bacterial infection of the gum tissue. This bacterial infection affects your gums when the toxins contained in plaque begin to irritate and inflame the gum tissues. When the bacteria colonizes into your gum pockets between your teeth, it becomes very difficult to treat. Periodontal disease is a progressive condition that eventually leads to the destruction of the connective tissue and jawbone. If left untreated, it can use loosen, shifting, and eventually loss of teeth.

When left untreated, gingivitis (mild gum inflammation) can spread to below the gum line. When the gums become irritated by the toxins contained in plaque, a chronic inflammatory response causes the body to break down and destroy its own bone and soft tissue. There may be little or no symptoms as periodontal disease causes the teeth to separate from the infected gum tissue. Deepening pockets between the gums and teeth are generally indicative that soft tissue and bone is being destroyed by periodontal disease. Request a dental appointment with our periodontist (Dr. Kyle DeLuca) to keep your periodontitis on check.
There are many surgical and nonsurgical treatments the periodontist may choose to perform, depending upon the exact condition of the teeth, gums and jawbone. A complete periodontal exam of the mouth will be done before any treatment is performed or recommended.
