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.
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.
