Periodontal, or gum disease, impacts millions of people in the US. Various stages of the disease are caused by a buildup of bacterial or plaque deposits. Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to the loss of dental and even bone tissue.
The first stages of gum disease include swollen, inflamed gums that have been irritated and inflamed by bacteria. If you notice these symptoms, or if you notice that your gums bleed when brushing or flossing, please inform our dentist. As the disease progresses, the gums can begin to recede, exposing the upper portions of the tooth, making them appear longer and increasing tooth sensitivity. Patients in more advanced stages of the disease can also have difficulty or pain while chewing, chronic halitosis (bad breath) and even loosened teeth. To treat or prevent these symptoms, come in for a periodontal examination with our dentist.
Regardless what stage of the disease you are experiencing, our office can recommend a treatment that fits your individual needs. To find out what treatment options are available for periodontal patients, call or come to our office for a visit!
