Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease) is an infection that not only affects your gums but affects the surrounding bone and supporting tissues around your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss and usually has minimal symptoms as it is often diagnosed as painless, although inflammation is a common symptom that we find. If left untreated, it can have terrible effects and lead to tooth loss in the most extreme cases but it can be very easily treated if nipped in the bud early. It is caused by a build up of plaque that can be prevented if you are cleaning and maintaining properly.
There are a number of symptoms that you can often not see but are tell tale signs usually of early signs of periodontal disease, including:
– Bad Breath/taste that won’t go away even with brushing
– Swollen, reddish looking gums
– Bleeding gums when brushing
– Loose Teeth
– Sensitive Teeth
We thoroughly clean the root surfaces of your teeth below the gum and ensure that the area is completely free of plaque and anything that is harming the gum. The level of treatment varies and ultimately depends on the severity of your particular case. Maintenance is the most important thing you can do and ensuring that you are keeping your mouth as clean as it can be all of the time is vital to ensuring no further damage is caused down the line.
With the symptoms often not being visible and a lot of our patients going many years without being aware of gum disease, it can be very destructive if left too long. It can lead to gum abscesses and can cause permanent damage to the surrounding structural integrity of the bone surrounding.
