Gum disease is a common, but very serious oral health issue. Left untreated, gum disease can result in pain and tooth loss. It has also been linked to health concerns such as heart disease and diabetes.

Symptoms of gum disease that should be brought to the attention of our Clovis dentist include:

  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • A bad taste in the mouth or bad breath that will not respond to brushing
  • Loose teeth or shifts in bite
  • Gum tissue pulling away from tooth roots

Bringing these symptoms to the attention of Dr. Miyake allows him to provide swift treatment and help prevent serious oral and systemic health issues.

Deep Gum Cleaning

Our Clovis dentist provides deep gum cleaning for the treatment of gum disease. This option allows Dr. Miyake to remove tartar and bacteria from below the gum line, eliminating infection and helping prevent additional problems.

Deep gum cleaning may need to be supplemented by more frequent general dentistry visits to our Fresno office along with a more rigorous at-home routine. Combined, these efforts can help protect your smile from the consequences of gum disease and keep your natural teeth healthy and strong for a lifetime.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of gum disease, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, DDS today. Dr. Miyake serve Clovis and surrounding communities from our office in Fresno, California.
