The Four Stages of Periodontal Disease

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 Periodontal Disease
Slight Periodontal Disease
Moderate Periodontal Disease
Advanced Periodontal Disease

Common Signs of Periodontal Disease:

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.

Periodontal Disease Bleeding

Bleeding, red, or swollen gums

Even if you brush your teeth vigorously or use dental floss, your gums shouldn’t bleed, swell or deepen in colour.

Periodontal Disease Loose Teeth

Loose teeth or new space between teeth

Any changes to your permanent teeth are likely caused by bone loss or weak periodontal fibres

Periodontal Disease Bad Breath

Bad breath

Bad breath is often caused by a build-up of bacteria in the mouth leading to problematic infections.

Periodontal Disease Pus Around

Pus around the teeth and gums

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.

Periodontal Disease Gum Recession

Gum recession

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.

Periodontal Disease Tenderness Or Discomfort

Tenderness or discomfort while chewing or swallowing

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.

Periodontist Toronto FAQ’s

How do I find a periodontist near me or a periodontist in my area?

Bond Street Dental Implants Toronto offers periodontics in Toronto. Our dental clinic is located in the heart of downtown Toronto near Yonge and Dundas Square. Our experienced periodontist will expertly diagnose and treat your periodontal disease.

How much does periodontal treatment cost?

What is the connection between periodontics and implant dentistry?

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.

Does treatment for periodontal disease hurt?

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!

What is the difference between a regular dentist and a periodontist?

Compared to regular dentists, Periodontists complete years of additional dental training to focus on maintaining the jawbone and tissues’ function, health, and aesthetics.

What does Periodontal mean?
