Be proactive when it comes to Periodontal Disease

Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth? Do you notice any swelling? There may be cause for concern if this is the case and we would recommend that you get your gums examined as soon as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease is key in preventing further complications such as bone and tooth loss. In most instances, especially when the disease is detected early, a thorough cleaning, scaling and root planing may be enough to halt further damage. For those who are vulnerable due to genetics, hormonal changes or medications, we recommend more frequent cleaning appointments as monitoring the disease may be necessary.
