Gum Disease And Tooth Loss

treatment for bleeding gums Plano

Do you know that the most frequent cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, gum disease is easy to treat if detected in the early stages.

Regular check-ups with your dentist are vital, but there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for.

  1. Gums that bleed frequently
  2. Gums that are tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  3. A bite that changes suddenly, so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly
  4. Loose gums
  5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
  6. Loose or separating teeth

If you are experiencing these symptoms, talk to us today. In its mildest form, gum disease is called gingivitis. Only the gums are infected at that point, but it’s important to get treatment right away. If its left untreated it could develop into the more serious periodontitis. That’s when the infection goes below the gum line and into the bone.

Gingivitis and periodontitis can raise your risk of other other serious diseases, like heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. That’s why early detection is so important.

Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing is the key to healthy gums. At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry we urge all our patients to brush and floss twice a day. We provide gum disease treatment, as well as general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
