Periodontal gum disease is a condition often caused by poor oral hygiene and improper dental care. As debris, plaque, bacteria and tartar build up in the mouth, it can actually begin to penetrate the gums, leading to infection and damage. As the condition continues to progress, the damage caused actually becomes irreversible and worse. Curing gum disease is only possible during the first stage known as “gingivitis”, following that the condition can only be managed. Ultimate, periodontal gum disease can lead to loose teeth, tooth shifting and even tooth loss.
It is important to treat periodontal disease to stop it from advancing, once the damage has been caused it cannot be repaired easily. Treatment to replace missing bone, tissue and teeth can be extremely expensive and quite invasive. If you notice any symptoms of gum disease such as bleeding, tender, receding or inflamed gums please let us know right away.
