Ferentchak Family Dentistry | Testimonial
  • I have been a patient for over 10 years. I also trust my children in their care. They provide friendly knowledgeable service. They are aware of how scary the dentist can be and they are kind and gentle. I recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist!

  • My six year old said, "Really good. 5 stars." "Why?" "Because she let me have a toy, and she was really, really nice." There you have it, from the patient herself.

  • I've been seeing Dr. Ferentchak and his staff for years. The referral to this office was the greatest gift that I was given when I first moved to the area. Super friendly and always willing to help. I wish I could give 6 stars!

Periodontal Treatment

Gum disease is a big problem in this country, and many people who have it are completely unaware of it. According to the American Dental Association, half of the U.S. population over the age of 30 has some type of gum disease. As people get older, that number gets even higher.

Gum disease represents more than just your oral health. Studies have shown that when gums are diseased, the entire immune system can be compromised. Gum disease can increase your risk for such serious conditions as diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. It is also the leading cause of tooth loss.

One of the problems with gum disease is that it often presents with no symptoms. Consequently, many sufferers don't know they have it so they aren't receiving treatment for it. The only way to know for sure if your gums are healthy is to see your dentist.

Make an appointment with Ferentchak Family Dentistry if you even suspect you might have gum disease.  As with most things in dentistry, the earlier you seek treatment, the better.

The Indicators of Gum Disease

Although gum disease often has no symptoms, if you have any of the following issues, they could be a sign it is present:

  • Tender, red, and swollen gums
  • Bleeding gums—especially after brushing or flossing
  • Pus between teeth and gums
  • Teeth that look long because gums have pulled away

If you are not sure as to whether or not you have gum disease, schedule an examination with a dentist at Ferentchak Family Dentistry. Even if it’s been a while since your last dentist appointment, we don’t make judgments. We just want to get you back to top-notch oral health!

How to Treat Periodontal Disease

Depending on the severity of your gum disease, Dr. Ken Ferentchak and Dr. Jason Luecht might suggest the following periodontal treatments:

  • If a lot of bacteria and calculus are present, a deep cleaning can help get rid of them. This is also called root planing and scaling.
  • You might be prescribed antibiotics to help eliminate bacteria that has developed in the gum pockets.
  • Surgery may be needed to shrink periodontal pockets, which will help minimize the destruction of healthy gum tissue.

After your initial treatment for periodontal disease, we will talk to you about a maintenance plan to help keep your gums healthy in the future. This will help prevent further damage to your gum tissue. You and your dentist will decide how often you should have deep cleanings to help keep your gums healthy.
