There are two major stages of periodontal disease: gingivitis and periodontitis. Some symptoms of gingivitis include gums that are swollen, red, or tend to bleed easily. Symptoms of periodontitis include gum recession, deep periodontal pockets, and severe inflammation. If left untreated, periodontal disease may lead to tooth loss.

Treatment for gum disease varies from patient to patient. In most cases, the symptoms of gingivitis can be treated and reversed with simple improvements to your oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing with the proper technique should return your gums to a healthier state. Regular checkups and cleanings are also key.

The best way to combat periodontal disease is with prevention. If you are at greater risk for gum disease or exhibit any symptoms, Dr. Schiffer and Dr. Butler may suggest improved periodontal maintenance.

Gum graft surgery may be the best way to address severe gum recession. Gum recession can be the result of periodontal disease, aging, trauma, over-brushing, and misaligned teeth. Gum recession can result in substantial sensitivity issues, pain, and poor smile aesthetics.

Healthy jaw and gums are vital to optimal oral health, and they also help to ensure that you have a great smile. However, due to one reason or another, it is possible to experience jaw and gum deterioration, which can lead to several dental problems.

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, it might not be possible to save your tooth. In such a situation, removal of the tooth through extraction becomes the next best solution. The extraction, while not saving your tooth, can help to spare you from other dental problems such as pain and discomfort, a spread of infection, or damage and the loss of other teeth.
