What exactly is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums surrounding your teeth. It may occur around a single tooth, or multiple teeth. Although Periodontal disease can be a major cause of tooth loss in adults, it can occur at any age. In many cases, periodontal disease may go unnoticed until the infection has reached the advanced stages. Left untreated, it can cause your teeth to fall out.
When this condition worsens the bone supporting the teeth will be destroyed, causing the normally shallow gum crevice around the teeth to become deeper. This deep “pocket” that contains bacteria can’t be removed by daily brushing or flossing, because they are too far below the gum surface.
Beyond the frightening dental problems; research has shown that there is a link between periodontal disease and life threatening conditions (heart disease, stroke and diabetes).
Periodontal treatment Mississauga is your best defense. Although the bone destruction under the gums cannot be visually undetected; regular visits to our dental office will control the problem, and keep it from worsening.

Signs and symptoms of gum disease:

  • Red, swollen gums.
  • Persistent bad breath.
  • Bleeding after brushing or flossing.
  • Pain with chewing.
  • Sores or pus-filled bumps in the mouth.
  • Periodontal treatment Mississauga: how we diagnose gum disease

    At each regular dental checkup, the dental hygienist will assist the dentist to assess your gum health by measuring the pockets with an instrument called a probe. When plaque sits in the pockets, the gums begin to pull away from the teeth. In a healthy mouth, your gums that surround each tooth should be firmly attached to your teeth.
    Did you know the space between your tooth and gums should be under 3 millimeters in depth? When the gum tissue is damaged, the sulcus develops into a deep pocket, generally causing more severe disease (gingivitis or periodontitis). Our dental professionals will look out for severity of bleeding, inflammation, and tooth mobility. Periodontal treatment Mississauga will use this diagnostic exam to determine the health of your gums.
