Gum Disease

Inflamed, bleeding gums, bad breath, and gum recession are common signs of gingivitis and gum disease. Gum disease is caused by bacteria in periodontal pockets, deep in the gum tissue down to the tooth roots. Professional teeth cleanings are required to remove tartar and plaque build up over time, when routine blushing and flossing aren’t enough. The most important thing to know about gum disease is that you shouldn’t ignore it. Left untreated, gum disease will result in receding gums, bone loss, and ultimately may cost you your teeth. Additionally, studies show that periodontal disease is associated with heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. So, if you have gum disease, it’s very important for your overall health that you get treatment.
