Symptoms Of Gum Disease

Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can build up in the mouth and infect the gums.

In its early stages, gum disease may not produce any symptoms. That’s why it is important to see us regularly for professional dental cleanings and dental exams. Contact our dental office if you begin experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Red gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Tender gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Gums that are pulling away from the teeth
  • Teeth that have become loose or are shifting
  • Chronic bad breath

Gum Disease Treatment

At our office, we treat gum disease using nonsurgical deep dental cleaning methods called scaling and root planing. We will gently remove any buildup of plaque or bacteria from underneath your gums and around the roots of your teeth.

To ensure your comfort, we will numb the area before we begin. If you are nervous, we can also provide comfort items and dental sedation to help relieve your dental anxiety.

If your gum disease has progressed considerably, we may recommend seeing an oral surgeon for periodontal treatment.

The Importance Of Treating Gum Disease

Left untreated, gum disease can affect your oral health and beyond. Here are just a few things that can occur because of advanced gum disease:

  • Pain in your gums
  • Receding gums
  • Jawbone deterioration causing teeth to loosen or even fall out completely
  • Systemic problems in your body
