If you experience soreness, bleeding, swelling or recession of the gums, Periodontal Associates invites you to contact us for an evaluation.
Periodontal disease has many names (Gum Disease, Gingivitis, Pyorrhea), What you call it is not important. What you do about it is! Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums and bone surrounding your teeth. As it progresses, it usually destroys the bone which supports your teeth. It is the major cause of tooth loss in adults.
Although there arewarning signs, the disease is painless and often not taken seriously, especially in the early stages when treatment is most effective. Fortunately, with proper care, periodontal disease can be controlled--even prevented--especially if detected early.
