Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative dental condition caused by the bacteria found in plaque. These bacteria inflame and infect your gum tissues, and will eventually result in bone loss, tooth loss and gum recession if left untreated. When diagnosed and treated in the earliest stage of development, gum disease can often be successfully treated and any damage halted before it can cause problems for your oral health and smile.
Common signs of gum disease include:
- Red, swollen or tender gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Loose teeth
- Persistent bad breath
- Receding gums
- Teeth that look too long
- Pain when chewing
- Changes in your bite or the fit of oral appliances
When you visit our office, our dentists will carefully examine your mouth to determine the severity of your condition. There are a variety of non-surgical treatment available, including custom-made periodontal trays. These trays are specially designed to fit comfortably in your mouth and deliver the prescribed antibiotic solutions that will manage the harmful bacteria in your mouth and reduce the infection in your periodontal pockets and gingival crevices. Our dentists will provide you with detailed instructions on how to use your periodontal tray. Depending on your needs, other treatments may also be recommended.
