Advanced Periodontal Disease


Advanced Periodontal Disease

Advanced periodontal disease or periodontitis is a common gum problem that occurs mostly to adults. Although it’s a common issue, it’s an alarming condition that usually ends up in tooth loss. Fortunately, adapting the latest dental technology enables us to provide you with more effective solutions to treat your gum diseases.

Signs of advanced periodontal disease

Our Oshawa dentists shares that periodontitis has these early manifestations including:

Receding gums. Receding gums appear to be pulling away from the teeth revealing more of the bite and its roots. This exposure will result in teeth sensitivity and the development of bacteria.

Gum pockets. Gum pockets are also a result of gum recession and are a notable sign of advanced periodontal disease. This would welcome bacteria growth in the pockets and cause infection.

Sores. Mouth sores, especially on the gums are a symptom that your gums aren’t healthy. Notice the sores if they’re recurring or if they do not heal at all after several attempts of treatment. This means that your gum issue is getting worse.

Bleeding. According to the Airport Dental Centre in Oshawa, gums bleed when it is already infected. Sometimes, pus is also present in diseased gums.

Sensitive or loose teeth. If you notice that your teeth feel loose or feels painful especially when you eat, then it’s caused by advanced periodontal disease.

Our clinic offers you plenty of treatment options to restore your gums’ health. We have root planing and scaling, which is a less-invasive procedure in removing tartar buildup under your gum lines. It will be followed with polishing to smoothen the rough edges of the tooth root and make it harder for bacteria to remain. Ask your Oshawa dentist what other suitable treatment can be done to keep your gums and teeth in their optimal health.
