Gum Disease

Also known as Periodontal Disease, gum disease is a serious dental condition that often gets overlooked and is not treated properly. Did you know that an estimated 6 out of every 10 adult people have some form of periodontal disease. It is caused by certain types of bacteria forming under and around plaque and tartar build-up. These bacteria create toxins that can damage the gums and basically start eating away at the bone around your teeth, creating bone loss. Getting professional cleanings regularly can help prevent periodontal disease, but once the disease has gotten into your gums and bone, deeper and more intense cleanings are necessary to remove the bacteria (see Treatment Options, below).

How do I know if I have Gum Disease?

  • Gums that bleed during toothbrushing
  • Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Any change in the fit of partial dentures
  • Permanent teeth that are loose or separating
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste
