Periodontal Treatment (Gum Care)​

Did you know? Bacteria thrive in your gums and their presence poses a harmful threat for a chronic oral infection. When bacterial presence is detected, the body launches an inflammatory response which can be harmful to your whole system.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Gum disease can produce a number of noticeable symptoms; however, it is important to note that the condition may be present without exhibiting any signs at all. This makes it even more vital to ensure that you visit regularly for routine check-ups and professional dental cleanings.
The symptoms of gum disease may include:
  • Swollen or inflamed gums
  • Gum recession
  • Gum sensitivity
  • Bleeding gums
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Loose/shifting teeth
  • A change in the way the mouth bites down
