Treatment for Periodontal Disease
At Oceanside Dental Excellence, we prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease. Periodontal disease begins when the toxins in plaque begin to attack the gingival tissue surrounding the teeth. The bacteria breeds and creates an infection.
As gum disease progresses, the infection buries deeper into the tissue. The body responds by destroying trying to destroy any tissue that has been affected. The gums recede and the tooth may become loose and fall out.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
Our experienced dental professionals help patients all around Oceanside, Fallbrook, and Vista, CA determine if they need gum disease treatment. If you notice any of the following signs and symptoms, we recommend you visit our office for an exam as soon as possible:
- Bleeding: If your teeth bleed easily while eating, brushing, or flossing, you may have a periodontal infection.
- Bad breath: Everyone has bad breath on occasion, but if you are suffering from chronic halitosis, you may have gum disease.
- Loose teeth and gum recession: Are your gums pulling back from your teeth? Are permanent teeth feeling loose? Schedule a consultation right away, because gum disease is likely to blame and should be corrected sooner rather than later.
