Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.  Proper treatment early-on combined with careful attention to your oral health can help treat and alleviate the symptoms of periodontal disease.  If your gums are not smooth, firm and a lovely shade of pink, there could be some underlying issues that are causing your gums to become diseased. These are some symptoms of periodontal disease

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

  • Easily bleeding gums

  • Tender gums

  • Red gums

  • Swollen gums

  • Bad breath that doesn’t go away

  • Bad taste in your mouth that doesn’t go away

  • Tooth movement

  • Changes in the way your teeth fit together

  • Dentures that no longer fit correctly

These are not a guarantee that your gums are unhealthy or that there is anything wrong with you. There are a number of reasons you might experience your gums bleeding or swollen gums. But if there is much pain call us our office immediately.

While there are more factors to consider when it comes to periodontal disease, you should also know that there are several genetic dispositions, diseases and lifestyle choices which make some people far more likely to develop this health issue than others.

  • Smokers

  • Those with a genetic history of gum disease

  • Certain medications

  • Hormonal changes such as menopause and pregnancy

  • Exceptionally stressed people

  • Those with diabetes

  • Those with heart disease
