Periodontal Treatment (Gum Care)

Periodontitis and its symptoms
Also called gum disease, periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue. Symptoms can include:
  • Swollen or puffy gums
  • Red or purplish gums
  • Tender gums when touched
  • Bleeding
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Painful chewing
Causes of Periodontitis
In most cases, gum disease is caused by plaque and bacteria. When the mouth is improperly cleaned and if a patient misses regular professional cleaning, plaque and tartar can build up. This in turn allows bacteria to thrive in the gums and teeth. When left untreated this could escalate to serious dental concerns such as loose tooth, bleeding gums and even gingivitis and periodontitis
Gum Care
The most effective way to prevent periodontitis is good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. It is recommended to follow the schedule we provide you and if you notice any symptoms, make an appointment with our Maxim’s Family Dentistry professional immediately. Remember that the sooner you seek professional care, the better are the chances of reversing any damage that periodontitis can cause you. Get the gum care, you and your family deserves.
