Save Your Gums; Save Your Smile!
Dealing with gum issues?
Periodontitis (or gum disease) is caused by bacteria living in dental plaque. Sometimes, certain bacteria can thrive and spread throughout your mouth, especially with poor or ineffective oral hygiene. The way the body naturally reacts to dangerous bacteria is to inflame the area they’re living in, thus, potentially creating infections.
If you come in with a case of periodontitis, you can worry less knowing that we will promptly treat it, no matter what stage, in order to prevent advanced inflammation or serious dental damage.
Other causes of gum disease include tobacco use, diets high in sugar, certain cancers, and stress.
Typical symptoms include swelling and/or bleeding gums, loose teeth, weakened oral bones, halitosis (bad breath), and gingival recession (teeth appear longer). Regular dental cleanings are one of the best methods to prevent gingivitis (a mild form of periodontitis) in both children and adults. We are happy to show you how to perform good dental hygiene and how to maintain your oral health in order to prevent bacterial infections and diseases. Sometimes, however, good hygiene isn’t enough since everyone is different, so the best way to stay on top of gum disease is to receive treatment.
