Gum (Periodontal) Disease

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is the major cause of tooth loss in adults and because it is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth, causing tooth decay as well. The warning signs of early periodontal disease (at this stage called gingivitis) are gums that bleed easily, and are generally red, swollen, and tender. The disease at this stage is reversible and can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at your dental office, followed by daily brushing, rinsing, and flossing.

Remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day, clean between your teeth with floss daily, eat a balanced diet, and schedule routine dental checkups to ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles! We're always taking new patients, give us a call to schedule your visit today!
