Rather than waiting for your teeth to fall out, it is important to be proactive and receive the necessary cleaning, restorations, repair, oral hygiene treatments and dietary restrictions to keep your smile safe and going strong for decades to come. However, many individuals often only focus on the health of their teeth and neglect their gum tissue. If for any reason your gum tissue begins to suffer, and an infection occurs, gum disease will arise.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection in which an individual has gum tissue problems and issues. In early stages of gum disease, also known as gingivitis, it is possible for an individual to begin to show severe signs and symptoms of damage. If you notice any excessive swelling, gum tissue recession, bad breath, frequently bleeding gums and abnormal swelling, it could be linked to a gum tissue infection. To help properly treat gum disease, you will need to visit your periodontist, who has received two to three years of advanced training beyond dental school to apply the necessary care to keep your gums safe.
