The Effects of Periodontal Disease on Your Gums

When gum disease is left to advance, it can result in your gums pulling away from your teeth. Once those spaces form, they can fill with bacteria and become infected. Common symptoms of infected gums are tenderness, bleeding, and inflammation.

The Effects of Periodontal Disease on Your Jawbone

Gum disease can also have an impact on your jawbone. As it progresses, the bone and tissue holding your teeth in place begin to break down. This deterioration can result in your teeth becoming looser and could ultimately lead to tooth loss. Although we do all we can to save your natural teeth, seeking treatment too late will significantly increase your chances of needing an extraction.

How Can We Treat Your Gums and Jawbone?

With periodontal therapy, we can use several treatments to restore the health of your gums and jawbone. Scaling can remove the infection deep within the gum line, and then you’ll need a deep cleaning. If you suffered from bone degeneration, grafting could help restore it and hopefully save the tooth. Our services benefit you in the following ways:

  • Prevent tooth loss
  • Improve oral health
  • Resolve persistent bad breath
  • Reduce pain
