Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal Care

Many people have confusion regarding what periodontal disease is, or may not even be aware of it at all. Periodontal refers to "around the tooth," and the disease attacks both the gums and bone that support your teeth. This is generally a result of plaque which has built up, turning into calculus (also known as tartar). Although this is most often characterized by having swollen, red, or bleeding gums, as many as four out of five people don't know they have periodontal disease. Our doctors can examine your gums and identify if you suffer from the condition.

Some of the signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Receding gums
  • Red or puffy gums
  • Discomfort and tenderness

Having good oral hygiene and a healthy diet are definitely large parts of reducing your risk of developing periodontal disease. Unfortunately, thanks to bad genetics, and other various diseases such as diabetes or cancers, many patients are at a higher risk for periodontal disease. Speak with our dentists today to prevent this condition.
