Gum Disease

Do you struggle with swollen, bleeding Gums? Periodontal disease — more frequently referred to as Gum Disease is an inflammation or infection of the gums that can progressively affect the bone that surrounds and supports your teeth.

What causes Gum Disease?

As dental plaque and tartar develop just under the gum lines, they cause diseased tissues that pull away from your teeth. To treat this condition, a series of deep cleanings (scalings) remove the bacteria to establish a healthy, stable environment again.

Symptoms often include:

Gum recession

Group 3134

Tartar buildup

Group 3135

Bad breath

Group 3136

Bleeding when you brush and floss

Group 3137

Swollen gums

The Overall Health Risks

Gum disease is linked to many underlying medical conditions. Research shows us that the more aggressive your periodontal condition, the higher the risk there is for heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, diabetes, and infertility.

Thankfully, gum and bone disease treatment can help your body’s immune system so that these conditions (and others) can be stabilised.
