Gum disease, which is also called periodontal disease, occurs when the bacteria found in plaque infect the gum tissues. When left untreated, this disease can cause the gums to pull away from the teeth. Gum disease can eventually result in bone loss, tooth loss and gum tissue recession if left untreated.
You may have gum disease if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Swollen gums
- Red gums
- Tender gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Loose teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Discomfort when chewing
- Receding gums
Dr. Azinge and our team can perform an examination to determine if you are suffering from periodontal disease.
Treatment for gum disease is customized to your specific needs. Dr. Azinge may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, improved dental hygiene at home, antibiotic treatment, deep cleanings (scaling and root planing), or gum surgery based on your specific case. Dr. Azinge and our team strive to restore your dental health and halt the progression of gum disease.
We invite you to contact our office manager, Marcy, today to learn more and set an appointment.
