Healthy gums and bone are vital to your overall health. When plaque builds up it causes the gum disease gingivitis to appear as red, swollen and bleeding gums. If gingivitis is untreated then bone loss can occur. Bone loss or periodontal disease presents as foul breath, loose teeth, exposed roots, gum recession and often spacing between the teeth. Surprisingly, it is often not painful at all. If you’re suffering from these symptoms of periodontal disease, please reach out to us immediately so we can figure out the best possible treatment to get you smiling again.
