Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. If plaque is not removed it turns into tartar and begin to destroy the gums and bone. Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums.

The treatment of periodontal disease begins with the removal of tartar and biofilm deposits. A dental hygienist procedure called scaling and root planing is the first step in addressing periodontal problems.

Signs and symptoms of periodontal disease:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • New spacing between teeth
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
  • Pus around the teeth and gums
  • Receding gums

Regular visits to the dentist for cleaning will help prevent periodontal disease.
