Gum disease is a serious oral health issue that should be taken care of as soon as you notice the first signs. Getting treatment early ensures that you halt the progression of the disease before it becomes too difficult to treat or spreads to the bones. Periodontitis begins as gingivitis, which is a mild inflammation of the gums. Warning signs include pain, red gums, and light bleeding when brushing. A trip to the dentist and the resumption of good oral hygiene can be useful in limiting its progression.
Unfortunately, if gingivitis is left untreated, it can turn into periodontitis. Early warning signs include discoloration, pain when brushing, and increased bleeding from the gums. At All Smiles Dentistry, we are happy to offer a variety of treatment options to our patients, including scaling, root planning, flap surgery, and bone and gum grafts. The appropriate procedure depends on the patient, their needs, and the progression of the disease.
