Periodontal disease signs can be subtle at first. Unfortunately, if you ignore them, you may risk losing teeth. Our Augusta and Evans, GA, gum diseasefamily dentists, Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris, share common signs of the disease and explain treatment options.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, often called gum disease, affects the gums, ligaments and bones that hold your teeth in place. It develops due to tartar deposits on the teeth near the gums. Poor oral hygiene can increase your risk of developing periodontal disease, but other factors may also play a role, such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease, hormone fluctuations in women, stress, poorly fitting bridges, smoking, crooked teeth or dry mouth.

What are the signs of periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease develops in stages. If you treat gingivitis, the first stage, as soon as you notice symptoms, you can avoid the unpleasant consequences of periodontal disease. If you have gingivitis, you may notice that your breath is bad, even after you've just brushed your teeth. Your gums may also be red and sore and might bleed easily when you brush or floss. Eventually, they may begin to recede.

As the disease progresses, pain and inflammation will probably worsen. You may notice that chewing hurts. If your tooth roots have become exposed due to receding gums, you'll also experience sensitivity when your mouth is exposed to extreme temperatures. A hot cup of coffee or an ice cream can cause pain that lasts for 30 minutes or longer.

Are your gums loose around your teeth? Pockets can develop when gum tissue pulls away from the teeth during the most severe phase. Bacteria in the pockets not only damages gum tissue but also attacks bone and ligaments. Tooth loss may occur at this stage of the disease.

How is the disease treated?

Gingivitis symptoms can often be reversed simply by improving your oral hygiene routine. If brushing and flossing regularly don't help, you may benefit from a deep cleaning in our Augusta or Evans office. Deep cleanings remove tartar and plaque under your gums.

If the disease is severe, you may need to take antibiotics and undergo a flap reduction surgery to eliminate your pockets.

Regular dental cleanings can help you control tartar and reduce your risk of periodontal disease. If it's time for your next cleaning and exam, or you think you might have gum disease, call Dr. Scott Wingard at (706) 738-4723 to make an appointment in the Augusta, GA, office or (706) 303-8283 to make an appointment in the Evans, GA, office.

Getting your teeth whitened professionally can be a life-changing experience. Whiter teeth are associated with youth, health, vitality and even your level of professionalism in the workplace. Your dentist have the ability to improve the appearance of your teeth by up to eight shades in one short visit. Explore the following FAQs about teeth whitening so that you can decide if this cosmetic treatment is right for you.Teeth Whitening

Why is Professional Teeth Whitening the Best Option?
Over the counter whitening products are convenient but problematic for a number of reasons. For one, they take a long time to show results (sometimes weeks or months), if they ever do. Whitening kits that come with trays are ill-fitting and uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. When you have your teeth whitened professionally, the treatment is finished within one day, in one appointment. There’s no need to disrupt your schedule by wearing a tray every day and little to no concerns about irritation of the gums since the procedure will be handled by a skilled dentist.

Who Is a Candidate?
Any patient with generally good dental health may be a candidate for professional teeth whitening. Keep in mind that some patients aren’t eligible for this treatment because they have stains that can’t be cleared with whitening gels. This is the case when the stain is “intrinsic,” which means the discoloration is at the inner layer of the tooth. You dentist can tell you if your teeth can be successfully whitened at your initial consultation.

What Will Happen at the Whitening Appointment?
Set aside at least an hour of your time for your teeth whitening appointment. You’ll sit back in your chair as the dentist inserts a device to keep your lips separate from your teeth then applies the gel. You’ll wait for anywhere between 60-90 minutes until the whitening effect has set in. Many patients choose to have this treatment performed on a lunch hour.

How Long Will the Teeth Stay White?
You can expect to enjoy your new whiter smile for about one to two years or longer. The length of time your smile will last depends on you and your dental habits. If you go back to eating the same foods and drinking the same beverages that stained your teeth in the past, the problem is likely to return more quickly. Use a straw, brush regularly and see your dentist for cleanings twice per year.

Contact Your Dentist

You will be happy with the way that your smile looks after going to your dentist for a teeth whitening treatment. If you have more questions, call for an appointment today.

Find out why preventive dental care is so important for the health of your smile in the long run.preventive dentistry

Despite the fact that decay and gum disease are fairly common conditions, this doesn’t mean that it’s just inevitable. There is so much you can do to prevent these problems from happening to you. Our Augusta and Evans, GA, family dentists, Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris, are here to offer up some ways you can prevent decay and gum disease from ruining your oral health.

Brush Your Teeth Every Day

This should go without saying and yet some people only opt to brush their teeth once a day or, worst yet, whenever they remember. Brushing your teeth is not negotiable if you want healthy teeth. You need to be brushing at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste if you want to protect your teeth from decay.

Flossing is Also Crucial

Many people just assume that if they are brushing regularly that they don’t need to floss. This is entirely incorrect. If you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums you must floss once a day. If you think about it, flossing once a day really isn’t that big a deal, so why put it off? This is the best way to remove plaque and food from between teeth and to protect your gums against periodontal disease.

Talk to Your Dentist

Whether you need to schedule your routine exam or you want to find out about dental sealants, our Evans and Augusta general dentist is here to make sure that you get the care you need whenever you need it. Coming in every six months for professional cleanings and exams is one great way to pinpoint potential problems and continue to monitor them so they don’t become full-fledged issues. We can also talk to you about other options like orthodontic treatments, which can straighten teeth and make it easier to clean your teeth and gums to reduce your chances of decay.

Summerville Dentistry is proud to serve the Augusta and Evans, GA, areas, offering the very best in dental care for an array of services. Remember, those six-month visits are vitally important for everyone. If you don’t have your next visit on the books, give us a call today.

Same day crowns are a great treatment procedure for those seeking dental restorations without the wait. Crowns are generally used in order to strengthen damaged teeth so they can function as they did before again. They are custom made to improve the appearance and/or function of a tooth and to prevent further damage from occurring. When you’re interested in same day crowns in Augusta, Georgia, look to Dr. Scott Wingard and Dr. Caleb Morris at Summerville Dentistry with locations in both Augusta and Evans, Georgia. They have had success in creating custom made same day crowns for a variety of patients.

More about Same Day Crowns

Same day crowns are usually used when tooth decay is so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed. A crown can protect a tooth if this happens. They can also help protect cracked teeth from worsening and for dental bridges. The E4D system is an easy to use CAD/CAM system that is changing modern dentistry. It can be used for veneers, inlays, onlays and same day crowns by your Augusta, Georgia dentist. We can obtain fast digital impressions in a few minutes with a laser scanner. From these impressions, we can custom make dental restorations for patients while they’re still in the chair. The impression is sent to the machine and is created. There’s no need for messy impression materials or temporary crowns and additional visits. Everything is done in the same visit. After it is created, it is placed in the mouth permanently with a bonding material that is hardened with a curing light.

A comprehensive dental examination is required to determine whether or not same day crowns are a viable treatment option for each patient. To schedule an informative appointment with Dr. Wingard or Dr. Morris today call Summerville Dentistry in Evans, GA, at 706-303-8283, or Augusta, GA, at 706-738-4723.
