Periodontal disease is a serious issue and you’ll want to be sure to get the best treatment possible. People suffering from this form of gum disease often wonder which expert will best know how to remedy this issue and whether an Anaheim periodontic specialist or general dentist is the best choice.

best treatment for gum diseaseHere at 7 Day Dental, we have an in-house periodontist and of course general dentists so we can put together a treatment plan that suits your special needs. Regardless of the path you choose, it’s important to make sure that you get adequate treatment for what can be a very serious oral disease.


Because we believe that a well-informed patient is our best client, here’s a few things you’ll need to know about periodontal disease straight from the experts.


  1. First off, while there is some indication that periodontal disease is may be related to cardiovascular issues, more research is needed to make a direct link. However, a well-informed periodontist and dentist will tell you that because both are chronic inflammatory diseases, there could very well be a link between the two. All the more reason to have any gum disease looked after promptly.
  2. Medicare doesn’t cover any periodontal disease treatments at the present time. Because Medicaid programs are under the jurisdiction of each individual state, treatment programs here vary. Remember that regardless of which 7 Day Dental office you visit, we are dedicated to tailor making a program that you’ll find effective and affordable.
  3. Although periodontal disease isn’t usually found in younger people and children and adolescents are quite often exempt, it’s always a good idea to start a healthy oral hygiene routine early in life. Being shown how to brush their teeth properly and floss when needed helps children to establish a routine that will help them to stay away from any kind of gum disease later in life. Still, we suggest here at 7 Day Dental that you tell us if your children develop red bleeding gums or lingering bad breath since those are two of the symptoms of periodontal disease.


Depending on the severity of your periodontal disease, you might want to draw the distinction between a regular dentist and one of these professional Anaheim periodontics experts. For example, periodontists are able to treat and recognize gum disease and they understand several other important techniques like placing dental implants where needed.
