Residents in Acworth with bleeding gums seek compassionate dental treatment and tips for preventing the progression of gum disease

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults 65 and older. One of the first signs of gum disease is bleeding gums when brushing or flossing. When residents in Acworth experience symptoms of gum disease such as this, they turn to the compassionate dental team at 32 Dental. At our Kennesaw office, patients can find gentle treatment. We also provide tips for preventing the progression of the disease.

Preventive dental care is critical in maintaining oral health. Keeping a healthy diet, good oral hygiene habits, and regular dental visits can help in avoiding gum disease. Respected dentists Dr. Lan Vo and Dr. Sean Breckley, and their team take the time to educate patients about various oral health conditions and diseases. They often educate patients about gum disease, how it develops, and its common causes and symptoms.

Understanding how gum disease develops

Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing is a sign of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. This stage is reversible, so it is critical to seek treatment. The advanced stage of gum disease is periodontitis. During this stage, gums begin to pull away from the teeth, allowing bacteria to infect tooth roots supporting bones and fibers. As the disease progresses, the bones and fibers can be destroyed. Teeth may shift or become loose.

Causes of gum disease

Some people are genetically susceptible to gum disease; however, the highest rates of the disease are among adults 65 and older. In addition to genetics and age, there are many other risk factors of gum disease including stress, smoking, teeth clenching and grinding, and poor diet. When patients are stressed, it is more difficult for their bodies to fight off infections such as gum disease. Tobacco use may be one of the most significant risk factors in the development and progression of gum disease. Smoking can wreak havoc on oral as well as overall health. Teeth clenching and grinding adds extra force on the teeth and gums, increasing the risk of an infection. A diet low in nutrients can affect the immune system, making it more difficult for the body to fight off an infection.

Warning signs of gum disease include receding gums, changes when biting, and bad breath. If you have experienced any symptoms of gum disease, do not delay treatment. Schedule an appointment with by calling our friendly team at (770) 423-1132 today.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
