Dundas East Dental offers periodontal treatment to help patients preserve, maintain and restore healthy gums. Our dentist offers a wide variety of periodontal treatments both surgical and non-surgical, such as tissue regeneration, root planing and scaling, dental implants, and flap surgery.
Gingivitis is an oral condition resulting in irritated, inflamed or bleeding gums caused by the accumulation of bacteria and plaque.
Gum disease (periodontal disease) occurs when gingivitis is left untreated. When plaque and calculus are not removed, gingivitis is allowed progress below the gum line which causes the gums to pull away from teeth created gum pockets . If not treated by a periodontist,gum disease may result in loose teeth, shifting teeth, the break down of connective tissue and tooth loss. In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss.
Gum disease symptoms may include consistent bleeding when brushing/flossing, swollen, red or tender gums, separating or loose teeth, changes in bite, bad breath, bad taste in the mouth, and gum recession.
Dental check-ups and professional teeth cleanings twice a year may greatly reduce your risk for developing serious periodontal issues such as gingivitis and gum disease. Through early detection we can best identify potential oral health concerns before they are allowed to progress to ensure your gums remain healthy and beautiful.
