Dr. Ashnaei as a Coquitlam/ Port Coquitlam dentist and his team are committed to preventing and eliminating this destructive disease.

The early stages (gingivitis) are marked by red, inflamed, bleeding gums. If detected in these early stages, gum disease can often be reversed. For more advanced cases of gum disease multiple appointments may be required and a shorter recall/hygiene interval recommended preventing re-occurrence.

Periodontal treatment starts with prevention such as regular cleanings and good hygiene habits. Scaling, root planning and local delivery of antimicrobials can treat and prevent the progression of the disease. In some cases, surgical therapy or cosmetic solutions may be necessary to correct the damage caused by gum disease.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is the most common disease known to mankind. More than half of the adult population have had it or will have it at some time in their life. If left unchecked and untreated, periodontal disease will lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease is caused by a large build-up of the bacteria found in plaque, which erode the soft and underlying hard tissues of the mouth. It has also been shown to increase the risk of heart disease, respiratory disease, and premature birth.
