Did you know that gum disease is the most common disease in America? You may have early stage gum disease and not even know it. Plus, few people realize just how dangerous gum disease is. It’s the leading cause of tooth loss, and it can contribute to systemic health problems like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Farhoumand Dentistry in Vienna, VA is committed to helping you achieve overall health by supporting your oral health; that’s why we offer periodontal care for gum disease treatment amongst our other general dentistry services.

Gum disease is an inflammation of the soft tissues of the mouth. As the disease progresses, it can affect the bone as well, causing bone loss and gum recession. That’s one reason why gum disease is so serious; as these structures deteriorate, the teeth will loosen and eventually come out. Plus, any infection in the mouth can spread to other parts of the body, threatening your overall health. While we cannot cure gum disease, we can detect the problem and provide treatment to help you avoid the adverse effects. This treatment will include scaling, root planing, antibiotic therapy, and laser therapy. We can use lasers to remove some of the infected tissue and sterilize the area. With comprehensive periodontal care from Farhoumand Dentistry, we can stop gum disease from ruining your smile and your health.

Whether or not you know that you’re suffering with gum disease, visit us for a checkup soon. Contact Farhoumand Dentistry if you’re in Vienna, Tysons Corner, McLean, or other nearby Virginia communities for regular general dentistry and more advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
