Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a very common dental problem. It is essential to get treatment for gum disease as early as possible. If left alone, this problem only progresses.
Signs and symptoms of periodontal disease are noticeable without a visit to the dentist. You could see redness and swelling in the gums, gum recession, and/or soreness while brushing your teeth. Although you may notice many of these signs yourself, it’s smart to get a thorough exam from a dental professional. We can identify signs that might be hard for you to notice, such as subtle swelling, and will determine how much the disease has progressed.
The earlier we can catch this problem, the better, which is why it’s important to have regular checkups. Nonetheless, we can still improve the health of your mouth if the disease has already progressed. Our services help prevent and reverse early gum disease, stop it from worsening, and provide treatment for more advanced cases.
