How hormones affect your gums

Hormonal changes can have a significant impact on your gums, especially during pregnancy. As your body produces more hormones, like estrogen and progesterone, your gums become more sensitive to plaque and can easily become inflamed. This condition is known as pregnancy gingivitis and can cause red, swollen, and bleeding gums.

Dr. Chopra can help you prevent gum problems during pregnancy and ensure the best possible care during this special time.

Dr. Chopra answers your questions about periodontal disease

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common condition caused by bacteria in plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth and gums. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems. Our Wheaton periodontal therapy services can help prevent these complications and restore your oral health.

How do I know if I need periodontal therapy?

If you experience any of the symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding gums, bad breath, receding gums, or loose teeth, you may need periodontal therapy. It’s important to schedule a consultation with us to determine the severity of your condition and the appropriate treatment.

What is scaling and root planing?

Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure that removes bacteria and tartar buildup from below the gum line. The procedure helps to prevent further damage to the gums and teeth by removing the source of the infection. The use of modern technology and techniques helps to minimize pain and discomfort. Local anesthesia is typically used during scaling and root planing to ensure a comfortable experience.

Can I prevent gum disease from developing?

Yes, maintaining good oral hygiene habits is the best way to prevent gum disease. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and scheduling regular dental checkups and cleanings can help keep your gums healthy and prevent gum disease from developing.
