What is gum disease and how can periodontal care from Origin Dental help?

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums. Gum disease is one of the top reasons for tooth loss in adults, and many patients don't realize they have this disease until it's too late. Some common symptoms of gum disease are red, swollen, and tender gums, bleeding gums, or gums that have pulled away from the teeth (recession). During regular checkups, Dr. Tran will check for signs of periodontal disease and offers deep cleanings for patients suffering from gum disease.

What can I expect during my regular checkups?

According the the American Dental Association, you should come in for dental checkups every 6 months. During these appointments, Dr. Tran examines your teeth and gums, and checks for any dental issues including cavities and periodontal disease. You’ll receive a thorough yet gentle cleaning to make sure you are on the right track toward optimal dental health. Seeing you every 6 months helps Dr. Tran understand the state of your oral health and treat minor dental issues before they become much larger and more costly problems.

Do you offer TMD/TMJ treatment?

Yes! We know that Temporomandibular Disorder, or TMD, can be painful and it can have severely negative effects on your quality of life. Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect your lower jawbone to your skull, and TMD can turn simple activities like chewing or speaking into painful episodes. At Origin Dental, Dr. Tran offers treatment for TMD that will relieve pain and tension and help you enjoy your life again.
