Periodontal disease is the loss of bone associated with anchoring your teeth to your jawbone. Periodontal disease is mostly unnoticed early on in life due to the amount of time it can take for bone loss to occur. However, it is a leading cause of tooth loss. Fortunately, Discover Dental can help!
If you are experiencing slightly or severely loose teeth or bleeding or swollen gums, you could be exhibiting signs and symptoms of periodontal disease. When you come to our office for an evaluation and exam, we will assess the severity of the disease and put together an action plan to protect your smile.
If the disease is severe enough, periodontal surgery may be necessary. A thorough consultation is needed to diagnose the severity of the periodontal disease and potentially recommend a visit from our periodontist
