Periodontal Disease

Gum disease graphs | Full Circle Dental Care | Del City, OK

Periodontal Disease (also called "Gum Disease") occurs when plaque that sits below your gums hardens into tartar. If it is not removed, this tartar can cause the tissue of your gums to pull away from your teeth, creating pockets between the teeth and the gums. If left untreated, the bones and tissues that anchor your teeth in your mouth will eventually be destroyed, causing tooth loss in severe cases.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Treatment depends on the severity of the case, but some nonsurgical treatments include: deep cleaning, more frequent cleanings, and antibiotics. Advanced stages may require surgery or periodontal laser treatment.

Gum Disease | Full Circle Dental Care | Del City, OKIf you are experiencing bleeding gums, tenderness of the gums, persistent bad breath, loosening teeth, recession of the gum line, or pus between your teeth and gums, you might be suffering from gum disease. It is important to note, however, that gum disease is often referred to as “silent” because it often presents with no symptoms; this is why visiting the dentist at least twice a year for checkups is so important.
