Periodontal Treatment (gum treatment)

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is an infection of the gum tissue that supports teeth. Periodontal disease is caused by the accumulation of bacteria and plaque on the teeth and gums. The risk for periodontal disease may be increased by tobacco use, some types of medication, crooked teeth, defective fillings, pregnancy, systemic diseases, or ill-fitting bridges and crowns. The symptoms of periodontal disease may include any of the following:

  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Red, tender gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Gums that are receding, or teeth that appear longer than usual
  • Loose teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Changes in your bite or in the fit of your partial dentures

  • “These guys are awesome! I had a tooth break on a Friday afternoon and they got me in right away! I've since seen 3 different dentists there and have no complaints. The office staff is incredible and friendly. I still am not a huge fan of going to the dentist, but this office has really helped alleviate my fears and dental anxiety. I would recommend them to anyone.”

  • I've known Dr. Chris for over 10 years, and my experience with him has been awesome. I got Invisalign with him to straighten my teeth, and it was incredible to have straight teeth! It was great, too, that I was an adult and I didn't have to walk around with braces like a teenage weirdo. Chris and YFD are excellent, I highly recommend them.

  • I took both my 8 year old and 3 year old daughters there, and it was great experience from beginning to end. It was the first time for my 3 year old (don't judge me ?) Jacqueline was great at making it a fun experience for her. Jessica helped take care of my 8 year old who had some infection on a tooth she had worked on a while ago. And the dentist was great too. Overall, everyone was friendly, everything was clean, and at the end I had a credit on my account that I didn't know was there which was an added bonus.

  • I love young family dental! Their assistants are great and make me feel comfortable which is important to me because I don't like going to the dentist. The dentists are very informative and make me feel at ease as well. They take extra time and care to make sure you fully understand what is being done and what needs to be done. If you need a check up, a cleaning, or work done stop or call young family in Riverton Utah, they are great!!
