Did you know that the early stage of periodontal gum disease (known as gingivitis) is actually completely reversible? Unfortunately, most patients neglect to seek treatment for gum disease until the disease has progressed into the incurable stages. Wondering if you may have periodontal disease? Here are common symptoms to look out for:
- Loose Teeth
- Tooth Loss
- Bad Breath
- Receding Gums
- Tender Gums
- Swollen Gums
- Infected Gums
- Bleeding Gums
- Gum Pockets
Many patients, however, experience no symptoms until the condition has progressed; visiting your dentist regularly can help with early detection of gum disease, allowing for early treatment and complete remission.
About Our Toronto Gum Disease Treatment
- Scaling & Root Planing – A deep periodontal cleaning consists of scaling and root planing, which involves using specialized tools to completely remove any bacteria, plaque and tartar along with smoothening the tooth and root. This allows the gums to properly re-attach to the teeth and eventually healing.
- Gum Grafting – For those that have been affected by receding gums due to their periodontal disease we offer gum grafting. During a gum grafting procedure, tissue is used to repair the appearance and function of the gums, resulting in a better-looking smile that is free of bacteria and infection.
