Did you know that during the early stages of periodontitis known as “gingivitis” you can actually cure the condition? Once the disease has progressed, however, you’ll be stuck managing your condition and symptoms for life. Wondering if you may suffer from gingivitis or periodontal gum disease? Common symptoms include:
Many patients, however, experience no symptoms until periodontitis has advanced. Scheduling routine dental care with Sweetwater Dental Studio can help reduce your risk for periodontal gum disease and even help with early diagnosis and treatment.
Gingivitis is the first stage of periodontal gum disease which can be completely reversed. As oral health is neglected, plaque buildup begins to cause inflammation of the gums and bleeding while performing dental care.
Once gingivitis has advanced, the supporting bone and tissues begin to be irreversibly damaged. The gums begin to recede and form gum pockets, allowing more debris, plaque, and bacteria to form below the gumline.
During the final stage of periodontal gum disease, the supporting structures in your mouth are destroyed, leading to loose teeth, teeth shifting, misalignment, and even tooth loss.
