Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment in
Bethlehem

No matter how well you brush and floss your teeth, bacteria can still thrive in your gums. When undiagnosed and untreated, these bacteria can lead to bad breath, irritated gums, and even tooth loss. While gum disease is preventable, dentists have the training and technology needed to fully treat this gum disease.

Signs Of Gum Disease

Bacteria often live in the gums near the teeth, which is why examining your gums is the best way to identify any infection or disease. The most common signs of gum disease include redness, soreness, tenderness, or bleeding of the gums. Bad breath and loose teeth can also indicate gum disease, but sometimes there are no symptoms at all. That’s why we offer a thorough exam to identify such dental health issues before they become serious.

More Than Just Gums

Gum disease has far wider health implications than just sore, bleeding gums and loose teeth. Because the bacteria creating the problem can get into your bloodstream, they can spread throughout your body. What starts as simple bleeding when you brush can get worse and contribute to heart problems, diabetes, joint pain, and even strokes. While these are unusual, they are definitely linked to untreated gum disease. You don’t need to be a dentist to realize unchecked bacterial growth in your body is a bad thing, but it does take a dentist to accurately treat it.

Nonsurgical Gum Treatments

The most common treatment for gum disease is scaling and root planing. Both are nonsurgical, deep-cleaning procedures that remove pockets of bacteria, plaque, and other buildup from the teeth, especially just below the gums where bacteria often hide. Once the buildup is removed, your gums can heal and return to their normal, healthy state with very little aftercare.

Bad Breath Treatment

If you are experiencing chronic bad breath and are not sure why, please consider contacting our office to schedule an examination. Gum disease may be the culprit. Bacteria builds up in the mouth, causing inflammation and an unpleasant odor. Let us help get rid of your bad breath and restore your oral health once and for all!

Dr. Lambert has been our family dentist for over 20 years. He is always professional, and he has gone out of his way for us when we’ve had emergencies. Carol Lee, the hygienist, is top notch, as is the rest of the staff. I highly recommend this dentist.

Dr. Lambert…..I just wanted to thank you for everything and tell you how much I enjoy coming to your office. Rare indeed is the experience of someone “enjoying” going to the dentist. Because you have done such an incredible job of staffing your business with people who create such an enjoyable, pleasant, comfortable yet professional environment, I enjoyed my experience.

I am so impressed with Dr. Lambert and his staff that my whole family are now patients of his. I tell everyone I know that if they want a dentist that makes them feel at ease and possibly even enjoy dental visits, my dentist office is the one to see. Honestly, I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t met these wonderful people that have taken such great care of me.
