What Is Gum Disease?
The beginning stage of gum disease is referred to as gingivitis. The main symptom of gingivitis is red, swollen gums. This can be easily overlooked, which is why it is our suggestion that you visit your dentist every six months to detect early signs of gum disease so it can be addressed right away. Without treatment, gum disease can continue to worsen and eventually lead to periodontitis. Symptoms of periodontitis may include bad breath, bleeding gums, painful chewing and sensitive teeth. We offer a variety of gum disease treatments. Your dentist will recommend the best treatment based on the condition of your gums.
