Gum Disease Treatment from Maya Dental
Gum disease (periodontal disease) is a common problem that many patients face. It can start with gingivitis which develops from plaque buildup around a tooth which irritates the gums.
You will notice bleeding and swollen gums when this happens.
When this plaque hardens and becomes tartar, it can lead to bacteria building up under the gum line and eventual bone loss. This bone loss can ultimately lead to loose teeth that eventually will be lost.
There are different symptoms to gingivitis and gum disease including red, swollen, or bleeding gums, bad breath, sensitive teeth, or general pain.
Our hygienist will do a wonderful job with professional cleaning to help you prevent gum disease problems.
Some steps you can take to prevent gum disease are brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and routine dental visits.
