Regular Treatment at Enderby Dental Centre Helps Prevent Gum Disease

Periodontics is the area of dentistry that deals with the gums and bone surrounding your teeth. It's essential that your teeth have a solid foundation for healthy gums and strong bone. Regular cleanings and treatment is the key to maintaining this foundation.

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting your teeth.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Swollen, puffy and bleeding gums.

Spaces between teeth.

Tooth sensitivity.

Bad breath.

Loose teeth.

If not adequately treated, periodontal disease can result in loose teeth and, ultimately, tooth loss. Early detection and treatment are important to successfully rectify gum disease.

Preventing Periodontal Disease

Brush and floss your teeth daily.

See your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and monitoring.

If diagnosed with periodontal disease, get treatment early.
