Prevent and treat gingivitis and periodontitis

Periodontal gum disease Rohnert ParkPeriodontal disease, also known as gum disease, has been shown to result in inflamed, bleeding, or receding gum lines.  It has also been proven to result in adult tooth loss and is one of the major causes of chronic bad breath.  From a health perspective, gum disease has been directly linked to serious medical conditions such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Stroke
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancies resulting in premature births.

Signs and Symptons of Periodontal Disease and Gum Disease

The gums and bone supporting the teeth are affected by periodontal disease, which is a chronic bacterial infection.  Initial signs of gum disease are typically bad breath, bleeding gums, swollen or recessed gums.  Ignoring these symptoms and avoiding treatment has been shown to lead to loosening of the teeth and bone loss.  Here’s a detailed list of the most common symptoms:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Pain inside the mouth
  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing your teeth or when eating hard food
  • Noticeable spaces developing between the teeth
  • Tender or swollen gums
  • Receeding gums or teeth appearing to be lengthening
  • Pus between teeth and gums
  • Movement of teeth when chewing or biting
  • Sores developing inside of the mouth
  • General movement or flaring of teeth
