What Causes Gum Disease

Poor dental hygiene is one of the leading causes of periodontal disease. Additionally, your risk of gum disease greatly increases if you use tobacco products, have a history of gum disease in your family, or have misaligned teeth. If you’re a high-risk patient, our knowledgeable team can provide you with specific preventive care to help keep your mouth healthy.

Signs of Gum Disease

While gum disease in its early stages can be difficult to detect, there are some signs and symptoms to look out for. Please schedule an appointment with our team if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Swollen gums
  • Inflamed gums
  • Gum recession
  • Bleeding gums
  • Halitosis (chronic bad breath)
  • Sore gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Painful chewing
  • Increased sensitivity

Periodontal Treatments

Our non-surgical periodontal treatment includes scaling and root planing. This therapy involves a deep cleaning of your gumline. Scaling is the portion of treatment that removes the plaque. Once the removal is completed, planing will be performed to smooth out your tooth root and allow the gum to reattach. This helps prevent bacteria from accumulating in the future.

Preventive Gum Care

Your at-home dental hygiene routine is critical in maintaining healthy gums. You should be brushing at least twice daily, flossing on a daily basis, and incorporating an oral rinse into your daily routine. In addition to your at-home care, you should be attending your professional cleanings every six months. This allows our team to properly monitor your dental health and detect any signs of gum infection early.
