Similar to other conditions, gum disease may not be noticeable at first and can also be painless as it progresses very slowly. Gum disease may be a serious and chronic problem that is the result of bacterial plaque and tartar build up around teeth or implants which collects above or below the gum line. If not treated, these bacteria can destroy the bone which holds the teeth and implants end up with tooth loss or implant failure.
Unfortunately, gum inflammation is often present for a long period before it becomes symptomatic, causing pain and discomfort. For that reason, it is essential that continual check-ups are executed, in particular when you have other health issues such as diabetes or heart conditions.
Gum disease does show signs and symptoms such as inflamed, red-colored or uncomfortable gums, gums which bleed and unusual unpleasant mouth odor. These symptoms may all be indicators that you're experiencing periodontitis which is an advanced stage of Gum disease.
At our office we can use soft tissue Laser to treat initial or moderate gum disease without a need for surgery.
