Periodontal Disease

Get Immediate Treatment for Periodontal Disease

Healthy gums are an integral part of your overall dental health. They are part of a beautiful smile and are actually connected to the health of your entire body. Periodontal disease is a serious problem that some estimates suggest affects up to 80% of Americans in some form or another, and yet, few of them are getting the treatment they need.

Dr. Smith is experienced with periodontal treatments and can help you treat these problems and restore the health of your mouth.

What Is Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease affects the gums and bones that support your teeth. It stems from plaque and tartar buildup which can eventually get below the gum line and start to work away at the bone structure.

It’s normally characterized by things like bleeding gums during a regular brushing, loose teeth, shifting teeth, persistent bad breath, red and puffy gums, receding gums, and general tenderness or discomfort.

This is the number one cause of tooth loss, but, more than that, recent studies are also connecting periodontal disease to things like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more.

In short, you need to take care of your gums.
