Your gums and teeth have an interdependent relationship, which means healthy teeth depend on the support of healthy gums. Most people don’t realize that periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults, affecting more than half all adults in the United States. However, despite its prevalence, gum disease remains quite preventable. Simply by maintaining excellent oral hygiene at home and getting routine professional care and periodic teeth cleanings, you can keep your gums in tip-top shape.
If you notice that your gums are bleeding with the slightest pressure while brushing or flossing, it’s a sign of gingivitis. Although gingivitis is the earliest stage of gum disease, it can easily be reversed with a deeper cleanings as well as an improved regimen of oral hygiene at home. If you have more advanced gum disease, we’ll recommend more extensive methods of periodontal therapy to prevent further damage and stop the progression of the disease. Whatever the case may be, you can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands at our office and that we offer the best solutions in care to help you maintain optimal periodontal health.
