FAQs on Gum Disease

Arden patients ask about effective gingivitis treatment

Patients in and around the Arden area who are experiencing the signs and symptoms of gingivitis are encouraged to visit Dr. Christopher Port of Asheville Smile Center as soon as possible for an appropriate diagnosis of the problem and the development of a treatment plan.

Gingivitis is the earliest stage of periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). It can be reversed if caught early enough by patients, which requires them to be well aware of what to look for. Some common signs of gingivitis include:
  • Bad breath that cannot be controlled
  • Bleeding when brushing and flossing
  • Inflammation of the gums
Patients who notice these concerns are encouraged to call Dr. Christopher Port to schedule an appointment. This may include a physical exam and x-rays to determine the cause of the problem. In most cases, gingivitis treatment will include a simple cleaning. Gingivitis can be caused by infection from bacteria, plaque, and tartar development. By removing these from the surfaces of the teeth and gums, patients can easily restore their oral health.

Dr. Christopher Port and his team do not pass judgment on patients who visit their practice in seek of dental health services. In fact, the Asheville Smile Center is happy to see patients who are concerned about their oral health and want to take steps to achieve the results they desire. We offer a wide variety of general and cosmetic dental services for patients who are ready to take charge of the way their smile looks and how healthy it can be.

Heather Boyd
I had a wonderful experience at Asheville Smile Center! I was very nervous about the amount of work needed and the potential cost. The staff were all very friendly, offering fresh baked cookies, aromatherapy and massage chairs! Dr. Hernandez was very thorough and was very to talk to. It was just an awesome visit!
