Gum disease is one of the most common causes of tooth loss. Periodontal disease and gingivitis are caused by an infection of your gum tissue. Bacteria forms when plaque and tartar are left untreated. You can combat these issues by maintaining optimal oral hygiene and visiting our office for regular checkups and cleanings. Gum disease can be treated but early detection is the key to achieving success.

What to watch out for:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gum line
  • Abscesses
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our office today to learn about your treatment options.
