Stop the progression of periodontal disease by recognizing the four stages. To maintain your oral health, schedule teeth cleanings, and check-ups twice a year, brush twice daily, and floss every day. Periodontal disease can easily be treated if detected early on.
Gingivitis is the first and only reversible stage of periodontal disease. It can be reversed by practicing good day-to-day oral hygiene. It’s caused by the build-up of plaque around the teeth.
Watch out for:
Slight periodontal disease is irreversible but manageable. In this stage, the bacterial infection has spread to the bone and begun to destroy the tooth.
Watch out for:
At the third stage, probing depths will increase to six or seven millimeters. This recession means that additional bacteria can attack not only your teeth but your bloodstream and immune system as well. If moderate periodontal disease is untreated, it can lead to:
When the infection deepens further, and the bacteria evolves into disease-causing bacteria, a patient is in the final stage of periodontal disease. This stage can cause:
It’s been estimated that four out of five people have periodontal disease without even being aware. It is the leading cause of tooth loss and can potentially lead to more serious conditions like a stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. If you notice any of the other following symptoms, contact us immediately.
Even if you brush your teeth vigorously or use dental floss, your gums shouldn’t bleed, swell or deepen in colour.
Any changes to your permanent teeth are likely caused by bone loss or weak periodontal fibres
Bad breath is often caused by a build-up of bacteria in the mouth leading to problematic infections.
If you notice pus in your mouth, this is a sign that there is a periodontal infection present, and you need to seek treatment from a periodontal dentist as soon as possible.
If you notice a loss of your gums around a tooth, a bacterial infection has likely begun, see a periodontist as soon as possible to avoid progressive periodontal disease.
Plaque, calculus, and bacteria irritate the gums and teeth, making your gums tender and causing discomfort or pain in your mouth. This tenderness or discomfort could be a sign or symptom of many oral health issues, so contact Bond Street Dental for a dental evaluation at your earliest convenience. The sooner we can treat any dental disease, the better.
Periodontists perform various treatments to stop gum disease from spreading, replace missing teeth, and improve a patient’s smile that has been ravaged by periodontal disease.
The periodontist at Bond Street Dental specializes in the precise placement of natural-looking dental implants.
Recontouring hard tissue to make the smile both natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing
Removing tissues or straightening the gum line to make teeth look more even, for toothy smiles
In some cases, the placement of dental implants will require bone grafting. If bone loss has occurred due to periodontal disease, bone grafting will help properly secure the implant in a patient’s jawbone.
As gingivitis and periodontitis progress, it’s hard to clean pockets between soft tissues and teeth scale and root plane teeth (sometimes under local anesthetic) to remove debris/infection-causing bacteria
To expose more of natural tooth remove some of surrounding gingival tissue

Periodontists specialize in gum tissues and the jawbone. Dental implants are connected to these areas of the mouth. Periodontal disease often leads to gum or bone loss, which can necessitate tooth replacement. We specialize in dental implants at our dental clinic in Toronto, so we recommend dental implants or all-on-4 implants for tooth replacement as it is the best and most permanent option to replace missing teeth.
Periodontal treatments can be completed painlessly with our sleep dentistry techniques. We offer IV moderate sedation, general anesthesia, oral sedation, or mild conscious sedation to ease pain or anxiety surrounding our dental procedures. Our periodontist will additionally provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure you have a speedy and safe recovery!
