Gingivitis & Periodontal Disease
Signs of unhealthy gums may be as follows: gums that are red and bleed easily, persistent bad breath, gums that are pulled away from the tooth, loose teeth, or changes in the position of the teeth. Any of these signs may mean something is wrong. With the proper care, however, it may be possible to return your teeth or gums to a healthy state.
If you think you are having a problem, come in and see us so we can take care of it right away. The treatment usually involves a deep cleaning (or root planing), and sometimes treatment with an antibiotic. If the gum disease gets too severe it may need to be treated through surgery or extraction. This is why it is important to get it treated at the first sign of a problem.
