Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a very common dental problem. Like most dental problems, it is best if gum disease is treated as early as possible as the condition will only worsen as it progresses.
Most signs and symptoms of gum disease are noticeable even before a trip to the dentist. Patients will note redness and swelling of the gums, gum recession, or soreness/bleeding while brushing and flossing teeth.
Even if you notice these signs yourself, please contact our office right away so that we can conduct a thorough dental examination to determine how far the disease has progressed. Up to a certain point gum disease is treatable and can be eliminated.
The earlier we treat gum disease the better, which is why it is important to have regular checkups and dental cleanings. Regardless of how the disease has progressed before you reach our office, we can still improve your oral health. Our services help to prevent and reverse early gum disease, stop it from worsening, and provide you with expert treatment and care for more advanced cases.
