PERIODONTICS

Periodontics

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.

THE GOOD

Brushing twice a day, flossing and regular dental hygiene appointments promote healthy gums and prevent gum disease

THE BAD

Lifestyle choices including smoking and poor dental hygiene can increase the risk of gum disease
