Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)
If you have experienced bleeding or swelling in your gums, you may have periodontal disease (gum disease).
If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause pain, bad breath, tooth mobility, and tooth loss.
Periodontal disease affects almost half of all adults over the age of 30. The bacteria that cause gum disease can travel through your bloodstream to cause inflammation in other parts of your body and has been linked to heart disease.
Our dental office can help you to diagnose and treat your periodontal condition. Our goal is to treat the disease and implement a periodontal maintenance program to help preserve your teeth for as long as possible.
