What is gum disease?

Gum disease is a common affliction in both men and women of all ethnicities from teenagers to adults. Also called periodontal disease, it’s a slow but progressive swelling of the gingiva, which destroys the bone that supports your teeth. This bone can’t be regenerated once it’s lost. Occasionally, gum disease is concentrated on one tooth or localized in a single area of the mouth, but it can also affect all teeth.

What are the symptoms?

Gum disease is often painless until advanced stages, making regular check ups increasingly important for prevention. Initial symptoms may include swollen gums that bleed when you brush your teeth or odorous breath. As symptoms progress, teeth may begin to loosen, shift and eventually fall out. Your body has to constantly fight the infection, which wears down your immune system. It can also lead to an increased risk of heart disease.

It may sound frightening, but early detection of gum disease can make a world of difference in your overall health. Give us a call and we’ll set up an appointment at your convenience. We’re here to help you reclaim your wellbeing.
