If you’re experiencing loose or shifting teeth, pain in and around your gums, or persistent bad breath, you may be suffering from gum (periodontal) disease. Periodontal disease is the inflammation and infection of the tissues surrounding your teeth. If left untreated, this painful condition can cause you to lose teeth, along with weakening your jawbone.
Thankfully, our highly experienced dentist can spot the symptoms of gum disease even before you do. During your semiannual dental exam, we’ll look for the signs and discuss treatment right away.
