What are the signs of Periodontal Disease?

Early Stage:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red, swollen, tender gums
  • Gums receding from teeth

Advanced Stage:

  • Space between teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Changes in your bite from shifting teeth
  • Foul smell & taste

The best way to treat gum disease is early detection & prevention.

A thorough exam can detect the disease and our goal is to then prevent further damage & loss of teeth & supporting bone.
