Gum Treatment in Rialto
Much like our teeth, we get only one set of gums, so caring for them is also a vital part of oral health. Healthy gums and teeth go hand in hand, and unhealthy gums can also lead to dental problems. So if you find yourself experiencing gum disease, whether early signs or more severe inflammation, Baseline Dental Care is here to provide caring and professional gum treatment in Rialto.
What Is Gum Disease?
Gum disease can occur when your gums do not get the care and cleaning they need. Patients can experience anything from mild to severe inflammation as gum disease progresses, affecting many parts of your mouth, including your:
- Surrounding tissues
- And your teeth!
In fact, gum disease is the most prominent cause of tooth loss. As the disease eats away at your gums and jaw, your teeth simply do not have anything left to hang on to.
Preventing gum disease in the first place is our preferred method of treatment. And the best way to keep your gums healthy is through three main factors:
- Brushing at least twice daily (including gently brushing your gums)
- Flossing daily (to get stubborn food out of the way)
- Regular dental visits (to get professional cleaning and preventative treatment)

Symptoms of Gum Disease
In its early stages, you might not even notice yourself developing gum disease. This is why it is so important to have your regular dental visits and oral exams, so we can help you spot any risk factors before they develop. As gum disease progresses though, the symptoms become more and more obvious. Below are some of the main signs that you are dealing with gum disease:
- Bad breath
- Painful, swollen, and discolored gums
- Notable gum recession
- Teeth becoming looser (eventually falling out!)
- Bleeding from the gums
