Gingivitis Fort Mill, SC
6 person family with children, their parents and grandparents

Despite advances in dentistry, Gingivitis is a common periodontal disease that affects millions of Americans each year. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums surrounding the teeth, and when not corrected it can lead to serious oral health issues. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we are dedicated to our patients’ oral health. We can help those who have gingivitis find successful treatment options, and with our dedication to providing comprehensive family dental care we can also help patients prevent this gum disease before it starts.

Bacteria are a natural development in the human mouth. While that may sound gross, these bacteria help to break down food particles left behind after eating. However, when these bacteria are not cleaned out on a regular basis they can be very harmful to the mouth. The mouth is an ideal place for bacteria to thrive – it’s a moist and warm environment, and with a constant food supply, bacteria can rapidly reproduce. When bacteria are not removed by daily flossing and brushing and through regular dental cleanings, the bacteria can reproduce at an overwhelming rate and break down the body’s defense system.

Gingivitis begins when the bacteria in the mouth form harmful plaque on the teeth. This plaque eats away at the tooth enamel and damages the structure of the tooth and its surrounding gum tissue. The severity of this infection can cause an entire mouth to become infected if not properly treated.

At Gold Hill Dentistry, Dr. Sagunarthy and Dr. Mokris are here to provide our patients with the support that they need to promote a healthy mouth. If you are suffering from gingivitis or are simply in the market for a comprehensive dental practice, call our office today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to partnering with you on the road to a beautiful and healthy mouth.

Marsha Rose

The staff at Gold Hill Dentistry is wonderful. They are polite, professional and helpful I have a history of working as both a dental assistant and hygienist in another state. I’m extremely particular when it comes to my dental care. My daughter recommended Gold Hill. I am very pleased with my dental care. I highly recommend the practice.

The entire staff at Gold Hill Family Dentistry are professional, friendly, and very good at what they do. I’ve made numerous recommendations to family and friends. Very happy with the dental work they do. Scheduling, insurance processing, and follow up are always first class. Dr Kavi is the man.

I highly recommend this dental practice. The staff are gracious, helpful, courteous and accommodating. Dr. Sagunarthy is a wonderful dentist.

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.

Midge Zimmerman

I have dental anxiety. I dreaded locating a dentist after recently moving to the area. I had gone to another dentist in the area but quickly changed to Gold Hill Denistry. Dr. Sagarnathy and staff are always kind, gentle and concerned with my well being. They also do a really good dental work. Other than routine work, I have had an implant, and chipped tooth repaired, all are doing well.
