Periodontal disease attacks the gums and bone that support the teeth. Four out of five people have Periodontal disease and do not even know it. It’s important to identify any potential symptoms of periodontal disease right away. As soon as you experience any gum pain, you should schedule an appointment with your dentist to discuss possible solutions and treatments. Although symptoms might seem minor at first, if not treated, periodontal disease can evolve into other issues. Periodontal disease is progressive and may result in acute illness and loss of teeth.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible:
- Bleeding gums
- Red or swollen gums
- New spacing between the teeth
- Receding gums
- Persistent bad breath
- Loose teeth
Periodontal disease can progress without any symptoms of discomfort, which is why it is important to maintain regular dental checkups. Periodontal disease can be characterized as aggressive, chronic, necrotizing periodontitis and periodontitis associated with systemic disease. Each has its own symptoms and requires prompt treatment. When a diagnosis of Periodontal disease is made, treatment may involve antibiotics in conjunction with non-surgical or surgical procedures depending on the progression of the disease.
