Ranging anywhere from inflammation to periodontitis or worse, your gums are just as susceptible to disease and infection as the rest of your body, and although symptoms can be as simple as bad breath that doesn’t go away, gum disease is a condition that needs to be treated when it’s noticed.

At our dentist’s office in Albertville, our primary goal is making sure every patient’s anxiety is reduced. This means having a staff of experts well-equipped and trained, as well as friendly and excited about the work they do. Empathetic and understanding, we work to make you feel as comfortable as possible and to get rid of the stigma associated with being at the dentist’s office.

It is important to come see us if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Chronic Bad Breath
  • Red or Bleeding Gums
  • Tender or Swollen Gums
  • Loose or Sensitive Teeth
  • Painful Chewing
  • Receding Gums

Gum disease can be a result of several factors, but it ultimately comes down to plaque on the teeth. Caused by the bacteria that is naturally in our mouths, plaque builds up on your teeth, which brushing and flossing should be removing on a daily basis. However, plaque that remains on the tooth gradually forms tartar that not even regular brushing can remove. If you have sore gums or are experiencing gum recession, it is important to come in and see a dentist for gum treatment.

This tartar can infect your gums over time, making them get inflamed and even bleed, and developing into gingivitis. Left unchecked, gingivitis leads to periodontitis, which can cause problems that will permanently affect your mouth.
