Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a treatable dental condition. Our in-house gum specialist helps patients achieve healthier gums and prevents the progression of gum disease symptoms.We are skilled in the detection of early forms of gum disease.

Preventive care is just as important as corrective solutions; good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent gum disease from spreading. Brushing and flossing after meals and accompanied by a healthy diet are the easier ways to maintain a healthy mouth. Some illnesses, medications and smoking contribute to periodontal disease.

Our hygienists are experienced in gentle and thorough cleaning of soft tissue. Plaque removal cleans the area around the gum line to help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. Without routine cleaning visits, bacteria spreads across the gum line and down into the roots. A periodontal probe is used to measure the depth of pockets between teeth and gums. Healthy gums will have shallow pockets that do not bleed.

Signs and Symptoms of Periodontal Disease?
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Bleeding gums after brushing or flossing
  • Pus around the gum line
  • Receding gum line
  • Swollen red gums
  • Increased spacing between teeth
  • Tender or sore gums
