Gum (Periodontal) Disease

Often beginning with red, swollen or puffy gums, gingivitis signifies the early stages of periodontal disease. As a common, treatable condition, gingivitis can help be prevented through an effective oral care routine and regular trips to your dentist for an examination and professional clean and polish.

If left untreated, gingivitis can escalate into Periodontal Disease. During this later stage of gum disease, Periodontitis can cause all the above symptoms but can also lead to gum and bone recession and eventual tooth loss. This is because the bacteria is delving deeper into the soft tissues and beginning to attack the surrounding ligaments and bone.
