Non-Surgical Gum Therapy by Stouffville Dentist
Our patients can utilize Non Surgical Gum Therapy as a treatment option at our Stouffville dental office.
Similar to many types of conditions, gum disease may not be noticeable and first and can also be painless as it is progresses very slowly. Gum disease may be a serious and chronic problem that is the result of bacterial plaque and tartar which collects below the gum line. If not treated, these bacteria can destroy the bone which holds the teeth and end up in loss of tooth.
Unfortunately, gum infection is often present for a long period before being detected by a dental practitioner. For that reason, it is essential that continual check-ups are executed - in particular when you have other health issues such as diabetes or heart conditions.
Gum disease does show signs and symptoms such as inflamed, red-colored or uncomfortable gums, gums which bleed and unusual unpleasant mouth odor. These symptoms may all be indicators that you're experiencing periodontal disease.
