Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative condition caused by harmful bacteria in your mouth. When these bacteria infect and inflame the gum tissues, it can cause significant damage to your oral health, and if left untreated, it may lead to gum recession, tooth loss and bone loss. Gum disease has also been linked to a number of systemic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory disease and pregnancy complications.

Some common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen and tender gums
  • Gums that bleed very easily
  • Pain when chewing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth

Our dentist will check for signs of periodontal disease each time you visit our office for a dental exam. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan to manage the condition and help you regain your oral health. We offer non-surgical gum care to meet your oral health needs, and we will review your treatment options prior to providing care so that you can make informed decisions about your gum treatments and oral health.
