What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is a condition in which your gums become inflamed because they have been infected by bacteria. While this condition is typically not physically uncomfortable during the early stages, it can cause a considerable amount of trouble. Over time, your gums may start to recede, exposing tooth structure and even leading to teeth loosening or falling out.
Bleeding gums is a common early symptom of gum disease. If you notice that your gums are regularly bleeding during brushing, give us a call!
What Can I do About it?
Fortunately, we can help you treat or even reverse gum disease. The earlier you get help, the better, as gum disease tends to get progressively worse over time. To start improving your gum health, we’ll regularly perform a procedure called scaling and root planing. This involves deep cleaning your teeth and gums by removing bacteria from the pockets between your teeth and gum line, as well as any plaque or tartar that has built up on the roots of your teeth exposed by receding or loosening gums.
When done consistently, this process can help stop the spread of gum disease and keep things from getting worse. Sometimes, it can even reverse existing damage.
