Comprehensive Periodontal Treatment
Treat & Prevent Gum Disease with Rieser Family Dental
Periodontal disease is caused by the bacteria found in plaque. If this plaque—a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth—is not removed daily through brushing and flossing, the bacteria will build up and infect your teeth and gums. If this sounds familiar, contact our dental offices immediately. At Rieser Family Dental, we put patient comfort first. With more than 25 years of experience and professionalism, you can be confident that we will deliver effective, high-quality dental services.
Some common signs of gum disease include:
- Swollen, tender, and red gums that bleed when you brush or floss
- Recession of gum line from teeth or formation of pockets
- Transformation in alignment of teeth or bite
- Loose teeth
- Bad breath
- Bad taste in your mouth
It is imperative that you contact our dental office if you think you are experiencing any symptoms of periodontal disease. After the gums become irritated and inflamed, the gum tissue can separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. The bacteria will move into these pockets and continue to promote irritation. If left untreated, the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues will deteriorate and cause you to begin to lose your teeth. The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis and often results in red and swollen gums that are easily prone to bleeding.
