Gum Disease Treatment
Prevent Periodontal Disease In Timonium
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, affects over eighty percent of Americans and is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. If left untreated, gum disease can have a serious negative impact on your oral health and the way that your smile looks and feels. Periodontal disease manifests in many different stages and will worsen as the disease continues to progress.
Periodontal disease symptoms can include:
- Sore or swollen feeling gums
- Teeth that appear slightly longer due to gum recession
- Pus around the gumline
- Painful chewing
- Tooth sensitivity
- Bad breath
- Bleeding gums
On their own, these symptoms do not necessarily mean that a patient has periodontal disease. However, if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you may want to come into our office for gum disease diagnosis from your periodontist.
