There are many signs that can be associated with periodontal disease, which include excessive bleeding in the gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth. If you are suffering from these symptoms, we invite you to come into our office as soon as possible. Periodontal disease occurs when the plaque on your teeth remains untreated. It will eventually release toxins into your oral cavity and irritate your gums, making them bleed and shrivel away from the teeth. If this continues, the toxins attack the bone that holds your teeth in place. Once the bone begins to deteriorate, your teeth become loose and eventually fall out.
To help maintain your overall oral health, we offer a variety of periodontal and deep cleaning services, including scaling and root planing. Together, we can work to help you achieve optimal oral health.
