Protect Your Gums and Teeth With Proper Dental Treatments.
What is periodontal disease? Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection caused by plaque, a film of food and bacteria that forms on your teeth. The infections affect your teeth, gums, and bone material. Many people do not realize they have gum disease because it is relatively painless in the beginning stages. Tartar forms from plaque that is not removed and only a professional cleaning can remove tartar. However, as the plaque build-up continues, it can become much more painful causing swelling and bleeding around the infections, eventually causing teeth to loosen. Eventually the tartar attacks the root surface of your teeth destroying gum and bone tissue. If you have persistent bad breath, swollen gums, or your gums bleed when you brush, please let us know so we can stop any further progression of gum disease and save your teeth before it becomes too late.
