Are you in need of gum disease treatment? Don’t wait! Contact Middletown Smile Center to find out how we can help you to affordably treat your gum disease.
Gum disease is a dangerous condition, but with advances in dental technology and research, there are many treatment options, even at advanced stages. To find out how you could benefit from gum disease treatment, and what your options are, get in touch with the experienced and friendly team at Middletown Smile Center.
Gum disease, or periodontitis, affects your gums, teeth and eventually your jawbone. There are three stages of gum disease, and it is very important that you seek treatment as soon as you find out that you have any form of the condition.
Gingivitis: This is the initial and subsequently most mild stage of gum disease, which can be most easily treated. Gingivitis develops when plaque is allowed to build up, releasing toxins into your mouth.
Symptoms of gingivitis include bad breath, redness and swelling in your gums and mild bleeding when you brush your teeth. Sometimes in the earliest stages, you will not be able to tell that there is a problem, which is why visiting your dentist for your regular checkup twice a year is important.
Periodontitis: If gingivitis is not treated, gum disease will develop into periodontitis. When it gets to this stage, the bones that support your teeth may start to become damaged. If you come to see our skilled dentist at this stage, advancement can still be halted.
Symptoms of periodontitis include those of gingivitis. Your teeth may start to feel like they are shifting or feel loose, with pockets developing between your teeth and gums. If you suspect you may have periodontitis, please seek treatment immediately.
Advanced Periodontitis: When left untreated, periodontitis will only get worse until it has advanced to a stage where there are little treatment options left. When it gets to an advanced stage, the fibers and bone that should provide support to your teeth will be destroyed, and your teeth will loosen and shift. It is likely that your teeth will need to removed at this point.
If you have recently been told that you have gum disease, you need to seek treatment as soon as possible. The earlier that you get treatment, the higher the chance that your teeth can be saved and advanced periodontitis avoided.
