Healthy Gums Are the Foundation of Your Mouth
Periodontal disease creates a silent attack against your teeth and gums. Four out of five people who have it never know they do until the dental problem creates continuous discomfort. Our Sherman Oaks dentists are highly trained at recognizing and controlling gum disease. To ensure you are not one of many people unknowingly suffer from gum disease; we recommend routine exams to catch dental problems before more extensive damage occurs.
Periodontal disease begins at the gum line and spreads over time. Early detection, good oral hygiene, a balanced diet and regular dental visits all factor into the fight against prevention and reversal opportunities of periodontal disease. Signs and symptoms that signal oncoming periodontal disease:
• Bleeding gums
• Loose adult teeth
• Increased spacing between teeth
• Ongoing breath odors
• Pus located gums and teeth
• Red swollen gums
• Gum discomfort or tenderness
The most common form of gum disease we see our Sherman Oaks patients come in with is Gingivitis. Gingivitis is often reversible when found during its earliest stages. When you notice any symptom or combination of those listed above, it is time to seek out periodontic treatment. If left alone, pockets will develop under the gum line in between your teeth creating a breeding ground for bacteria and the promotion of bone loss.
