Our dentists prevent, diagnose and treat gum (periodontal) disease. The two major groups of gum diseases are Gingivitis and Periodontitis.
COMMON SIGNS OF GUM DISEASE
- With gingivitis, the gums and surrounding tissue become inflamed with signs including bleeding and redness of the gums.
- Periodontitis is when gum disease is accompanied by bone loss and recession which can cause bad breath and loss of teeth.
Brushing twice a day, flossing and regular dental hygiene appointments promote healthy gums and prevent gum disease
Lifestyle choices including smoking and poor dental hygiene can increase the risk of gum disease
