From inflammation to periodontitis, gum disease can create discomfort and even pain. Your gums are susceptible to disease and infection, especially if brushing and flossing aren’t done regularly and if professional cleanings are not scheduled at regular intervals. Even though gum disease symptoms can be as simple as bad breath that doesn’t go away, this condition needs to be treated when it’s noticed.
At our dentist’s office in Albertville, our primary goal is making sure every patient receives quality dental care in a relaxed, comfortable environment. This means having a staff of experts well-equipped and trained to treat any dental health issues, including gum disease. 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 found 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 inflamed. In some cases they may bleed and develop into gingivitis. Left unchecked, gingivitis leads to periodontitis, which can cause problems that will permanently affect your mouth.
