Signs It Is Time to See a Periodontist

Signs It Is Time to See a PeriodontistTreatment of gum diseases is much easier and cost-effective in the former phases. You must schedule an appointment with our dentists right away if you are exhibiting any of the signs of periodontal disease. In many cases, patients will experience pain and swelling only when the infection has spread to a larger area, therefore it's important to keep an eye for other signs as well.

Signs of Periodontal Diseases

Chronic and persistent bad breath is the easiest takeaway for periodontal disease. If bad breath persists after regular oral care, schedule a visit with our clinic and get it checked out immediately. Bleeding gums are a clear indication of excessive tartar buildup that is irritating and inflaming your gum tissue. Unlike plaque, you can remove tartar buildup by a deep clean performed by a dentist or dental hygienist.

Some patients might feel their teeth getting longer due to receding gums. Gum recession can occur due to gingivitis or periodontitis, where the gums pull back and can end up exposing the root of the tooth if left untreated. In some cases, red, Swollen, or Tender Gums can be a sign of a periodontal abscess, which is bad for your teeth as well as general health.

Receding gum lines can expose the root of your teeth to bacteria, making them sensitive to hot or cold food and beverages. Gum recession can be difficult to diagnose as it happens over the span of a few years. If caught early, a deep cleaning and antibiotic medication treatments can completely reverse the condition.

If you notice any difficulty or pain while chewing it might be that your teeth have loosened. Some patients might experience a change in their bite pattern due to underlying periodontal disease that can weaken your gum tissue. If you have noticed any loose or shifting teeth, you must seek professional help right away to avoid losing your teeth completely. To learn more, please contact us today.
