Gum Disease Treatments In Toronto
While it is not prevalent in early youth through the teen years, gum diseases (from gingivitis to periodontal disease) seem to appear commonly in adults after the age of 30. Early stages of gum disease (Gingivitis) can usually be treated through proper oral health care regimen (brushing, flossing and other techniques) and regular visits to your dentist for monitoring and cleanings. If Gingivitis is left untreated, can progress to Periodontal Disease. In Periodontal Diseases, pockets develop at the gum line allowing bacteria and infection to damage not only your teeth and gums but also the structure that supports them and eventually your overall health.
– Teeth that appear unusually long (due to receded gum).
– Excessive tartar buildup along the visible gum line and in the ‘pocket’.
– Frequent or continuous bad breath.
– Swollen gums that appear shiny or bright red (like in many infections)
