What Are the Signs of Periodontal Disease?
Gingivitis is a treatable stage of periodontal disease. However, once it advances to periodontitis, it can cause significant issues with your oral and overall body health. Luckily, Dental Loft offers periodontal therapy to help reduce the symptoms so that you can maintain a healthy smile. Our treatment typically includes removing plaque and tartar build-up found below the gum line, eliminating bacteria, and allowing your gums to heal. Some of the most common symptoms of periodontal disease include the following:
- Recessed Gums
- Loose Teeth
- Bad Breath

How Can I Prevent Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease occurs when the gums pull away from the tooth root due to bacteria. As the condition worsens, it can prevent the gums from healing. Luckily, periodontal disease is easily preventable by maintaining an excellent dental hygiene routine. You should visit your dentist at least twice a year, brush your teeth twice a day, and floss daily. Other steps you can take to prevent periodontal disease include eliminating foods high in sugar and avoiding using tobacco products. When you visit our office, we’ll examine your teeth for any early signs of periodontal disease. Prevention is the easiest way to avoid long-term issues with your teeth.
