Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum line that can progress to affect the surrounding bone that supports your teeth.
Stages of gum disease are from -Least to Severe-Gingivitis to Early, Moderate, and Severe Periodontitis,( At this advanced stage teeth are almost hopeless) We, therefore, pay attention to all our patient's gum conditions by screening and providing treatment recommendations to avoid losing their teeth to this disease.
Common signs and symptoms are:
- Swollen, red, tender or bleeding gums
- Gum that recede or move away from tooth
- Persistent bad breath, loose teeth, and visible pus surrounding teeth and gums.
We recommend regular check-ups and treat any stages of gum disease you may fall into.
When your tooth’s pulp is damaged or the nerve becomes infected, you will require a root canal. During your root canal procedure, our dentists will remove the infected pulp tissue and disinfect the root space. Once it is disinfected, we will fill the canal and seal it, making your tooth good as new.
