Albuquerque, NM ( March 18, 2013 - Albuquerque, New Mexico (January 25, 2013) - Peak Family Dentistry is educating the community about the effects of periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease. The Albuquerque dentists' practice is family oriented, offering a variety of services to serve the oral healthcare needs of its patients.

Gum disease starts with the inflammation of the gum tissue around the teeth, causing the affected gum tissue to pull away from the teeth, which creates a pocket that may become infected. Bacterial toxins and the immune system's response to the infection break down the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth in place.

Gingivitis is the mild inflammation of the gums where they appear red and swollen. Simply brushing the teeth may lead to bleeding. If left untreated, the bone, gums and tissue supporting the teeth get destroyed and teeth becomes loose, painful, and need to be removed.

To prevent periodontal disease, dentists perform scaling and root planing through dental prophylaxis or dental cleaning. The deep dental cleaning process is a non-surgical treatment for gum disease. It removes the plaque building up below the gum line by manual scraping or ultrasonic tools. The dentist can then evaluate the hygiene status of the teeth and determine what needs to be done to keep teeth and gums healthy.

Peak Family Dentistry recommends that the procedure be done every 6 months to maintain good oral health. If tooth decay has started, The Albuquerque dentists perform fillings, crowns, onlays, veneers, and bridges to save the affected teeth. They also offer implants, extractions, and dentures for patients to have an aesthetic smile.
