Gum Disease is No Match for Periodontal Therapy from Cross City Dental

The odds are really high that you’ll encounter gum disease at some point in your life – statistics show the number of Americans suffering with this oral disease to be as high as 80%. When you do find yourself suffering from gum disease, you can trust Cross City Dental in Dixie County, Florida to provide you with periodontal therapy for treatment of gum disease.

What are the symptoms of gum disease?

  • Gums that bleed easily.
  • Tenderness or swelling of the soft oral tissues.
  • Bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth.
  • Oral sores or pus.
  • Loose teeth.

If you’re not seeing the dentist regularly for checkups, we encourage you to make an appointment for periodontal charting with Cross City Dental, even if you’re not experiencing any of these symptoms. Why? Gum disease can be sneaky, sometimes not presenting symptoms until it’s progressed to a more serious stage. The earlier we catch your gum disease, the better we can treat it with non-surgical periodontal therapy.

At Cross City Dental, we provide periodontal therapy using dental lasers to make treatment both more successful and more comfortable. We’ll clean the infected areas and take steps to stop future infections as well. Stopping gum disease protects you from further related complications including heart disease, stroke, and losing teeth.
