What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is an inflammation or infection of the gums. It can range in severity from mild to quite severe. If left untreated, it will progress and could eventually lead to loose teeth or lost teeth. Some common symptoms that may indicate that you have periodontal disease include:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Swelling or redness of the gums
  • Bleeding when you brush your teeth
  • Pain and tenderness in the gums
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Receding gums

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call us today for an appointment so we can check you out and create an individualized treatment plan.
