Are you worried that you may be at risk of gum disease? Learn more about the causes of and symptoms of this preventable condition.

Prevent Gum Disease

Gum disease is entirely avoidable. Regular brushing and flossing can ward off the buildup of plaque on the teeth that can later calcify and become tartar. Unlike plaque, tartar is not removable through your typical at-home dental hygiene routine. When left alone, your gums are subject to infection.

At each of your dental checkups, we will evaluate all elements of your oral health. Our practice will simultaneously look at your teeth and your gums to ensure optimal dental well-being. If you are showing signs of periodontal disease, we will let you know immediately and work with you to establish a plan of care that addresses your immediate needs.

Common Symptoms of Gum Disease

We understand the worry that accompanies potential gum disease. If you feel like you may be suffering from this condition, it is best to see a dental professional as soon as possible. Gum disease has been known to increase risk of diabetes, strokes, and fertility issues.

Are you aware of the symptoms that come with periodontal disease? Be on the lookout for the following signs:

  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Bleeding gums
  • Darkened gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Receding gum lines
  • Gum sensitivity

A Non-Surgical Solution

Fortunately, gum disease can now be tackled without the need for surgery. If you have periodontal disease and prefer to avoid an invasive dental operation, soft tissue therapy might be a viable option for you. We provide this service right here at Green Apple Dental Clinic. It involves ultrasonics, antibiotics, and irrigation. Regular visits to our practice could be all you need to see a dramatic change in your gum health.

Does soft tissue therapy appeal to you? We are glad to answer any questions you may have for us regarding this fantastic solution to gum disease.
