SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
Spotting Gum Disease
Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone around the teeth. Unremoved sticky film, food debris, and bacteria known as plaque that is not removed, turns into tartar. Plaque and tarter that are not removed, begin to destroy the gums and bone. Red, swollen,and bleeding gums characterize periodontal disease.
Research suggests that there might be a link between gum disease and other diseases including: diabetes, stroke, bacterial pneumonia, and cardiovascular disease. The treatment for periodontal disease will depend upon the severity and type of the disease. This will be determined by your dentist and hygienist.
