What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is an infection of the gums and bones that support the teeth. Poor oral hygiene habits like poor brushing and improper flossing that don’t remove plaque correctly contribute to the development of gum disease. Symptoms of gum disease may not always appear until advanced stages. Signs of gum disease include:
- Red or Swollen Gums
- Mouth Sores
- Loose or Separating Teeth
- Receding Gums
- Painful Chewing
Is periodontal disease curable?
Gum disease can often be treated successfully but only has one reversible stage. A professional deep cleaning and good oral care can often reverse the first stage of periodontal disease. More advanced stages may require surgery or antibiotics. The best way to keep your gums and teeth healthy is by brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, and routinely visiting Dr. Bartels for exams and cleanings.
How much does periodontal disease treatment cost?
Receiving periodontal disease treatment as soon as possible provides a better chance for your smile to stay natural.
