The Silent Problem… Gingivitis

It hides in your mouth, causing swollen and bleeding gum tissue that eventually will become infected with bacteria. It can lead to problems in pregnancy, strokes and heart attacks. Some people might not think it is their problem, it is. Conservative estimates report that up to 80 percent of the population unknowingly has gingivitis or periodontal disease in some form. Gingivitis is the silent disease because the early symptoms, like swollen gums and bleeding while brushing, may be painless and mild. Come in for a check-up, receive quality care and you will be convinced that Lad Family Dentistry will be the only Dental Office for you. Call us for an appointment about a periodontal check-up in Temple City. (626) 287-4094

gingivitis treatment story

I Brushed Every Day

“Prior to coming to Lad Family Dentistry, I brushed my teeth every day, I flossed, I had my regular check-ups and I still got gum disease. Dr Lad  discovered that my bleeding gums were due to periodontitis. He and his staff got me in that same week for periodontal treatment. I received the treatment and have not had a problem since. That was three years ago and I am still with Lad Family Dentistry.”

Health Issues From Gingivitis

According to research, seventy percent of adult tooth loss is attributed to gum disease. It also shows a link between people who have gum disease and those who suffer from heart attacks, strokes, or complications from diabetes. Because this disease is so silent in its symptoms, it is vital to have regular dental checkups by a professional who can detect, treat, and possibly even reverse gingivitis disease in early stages before major problems arise. Both Dr. Sunjay Lad and Dr. Chiman Lad have been professionally trained to detect and treat any form of gingivitis or periodontal disease. Call (626) 287-4094 for great dental care and a gingivitis appointment in Temple City today.

The Cause and Effect of Gingivitis

Some contributing factors to gingivitis are: heredity, lifestyle choices and plaque buildup. The most prevalent and controllable factor is bacterial plaque, the sticky, colorless film from normal oral bacteria. Foods, such as sugars and starches, feed Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria that releases toxins that break down the natural fibers that bond gums to teeth, causing receding gums and pockets between the gums and teeth. This hides more bacteria that continue to break down fibers. Over time, if this disease continues, it can affect not only the gums, teeth and bone, but also overall health. The bacteria can be ingested and compromise your whole-body health. It is vital to have regular check-ups for good oral hygiene. Click here for more information.

Treatment for Gingivitis

Periodontal disease is caused by plaque and calculus build-up around the roots of teeth. Your body responds to this build up by destroying bone, causing infection and inflaming the surrounding tissue. This disease can be arrested by treatments such as root planing (deep cleaning) and scaling. These treatments remove the plaque and bacteria from your tooth, allowing healing. Without treatment, the disease will continue until the teeth shift or become loose and fall out. Dr. Sunjay Lad and Dr. Chiman Lad understand the disease and will discuss options to get your mouth healthy. Call today and our staff will get you on the road to recovery. In the Temple City area and need help with gingivitis, call us anytime 24 hours a day (626) 287-4094.

Maintaining Good Periodontal Health

After going through periodontal treatment, we recommend that you have regular dental visits at least every six months to allow us to keep a watchful eye on the health of your gums. You should continue to brush at least twice a day, floss once a day, and use a good mouth rinse. Our doctors will suggest products that will enhance the health of your teeth and gums and will show you the best method for brushing and flossing. No more red, inflamed, and tender gums. Our staff will give you the kind and gentle service that will help ensure your mouth stays healthy for a lifetime. Gum disease problems, no worry. Call Lad Family Dentistry in Temple City.

Amanda K.

Very professional, very clean, very organized. Will take time to make sure that you are comfortable. Plus there are lovely outdoor gardens that patients can observe while getting their teeth cleaned.

Martha W.

Dr. Sunjay Lad is professional, thorough, and efficient. He talks through the different options for care with me and is honest about what needs to be taken care of in the short term versus what we can wait to deal with later. Very clean facility and welcoming and proficient staff. Highly recommend.

Xtine T.

I had a friend who recommended Dr. Chiman Lad a few years ago, and finally decided to make the switch this year. My friend has had Dr. Lad as his dentist for over 30 years, so I figured he must be good! The office is in a really convenient location for me so that was a major contributing factor for me to make the switch.

Ron P.

I have been to several dentist in my lifetime and some of the procedures Dr Lad used are some of the most advanced I have ever seen. The attention and service from the entire staff at Lad Family dentistry is also among the highest.
