What is gum disease?

Gum disease in Garden City is a serious condition of the ligaments and tissues that anchor your teeth. When gum disease is present and left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. Additionally, studies have linked gum disease to heart complications, lung problems, low birth weight in babies, Alzheimer’s disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth despite brushing
  • Loose or mobile teeth
  • Elongated appearing teeth
  • Gum swelling and pocketing
  • Oral pain

Gum disease is mostly preventable with regular dental exams and teeth cleanings near me. You should adopt and implement an excellent oral care routine at home between dental visits as well. Lack of dental care and hygiene significantly increases your risk for gum disease.

Your dentist in Garden City can help combat the symptoms of gum disease and help you save your teeth and your health. However, periodontitis is not curable.

Treatments may include specialized teeth cleanings below the gumline, topical antibiotics, and tips for improved at-home oral care.
