Protecting Your Smile, Gums and All

Your smile is composed of more than just your teeth. The bone and soft tissue in your mouth play a huge roll in maintaining the overall look and function of your mouth. At Irvine Spectrum Dental, we work with you to keep all aspects of your smile healthy, including your gums. During your regular visits, we can help you avoid developing harmful gum disease, or we can provide the treatments you need if you have already developed the condition. No matter your situation, we are here to take care of your gums.

Gum disease is a progressive disease, developing slowly over time and is often not caught until it has caused moderate damage. That is one reason why it is so important to visit the dentist regularly. When you visit our practice, Dr. Anthony Yu can evaluate your oral health to catch the early signs of gum disease and provide the necessary treatment.

The prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease is a field of dentistry called periodontics. Our caring and talented dentist and team have received the training necessary to identify the early signs of gum disease, including bleeding, sore, inflamed and irritated gums. In addition, we can provide a variety of treatments, based on your individual needs, to remove the harmful plaque and bacteria, and to restore your smile’s optimal health.

If you are experiencing the early signs of gum disease, we can give you the care you need and help restore your oral health. Give our practice a call at 949-387-6418 and set up your appointment for gum disease treatment in Irvine, California.
