Gum Disease Treatment
Modern Periodontal Disease Options In Wetaskiwin
What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is an inflammatory condition caused by bacteria that can develop in the gum line. Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss, and if left untreated it can lead to other serious health problems including Alzheimer’s, heart disease, pulmonary disease, diabetes, pregnancy issues, and infertility.
Some common signs or symptoms of gum disease include:
- Halitosis (Bad breath)
- Bleeding gums or gum pain
- Receding gums
- Sensitivity in the gums or swollen gum areas
- Mouth sores or pus between your teeth and gums
These signs do not necessarily mean you have periodontal disease, but if you are experiencing multiple symptoms on this list, you may want to come into our Wetaskiwin office for a diagnosis.
