About 80% of people suffer from gum disease. Also called periodontal disease, this dental health issue causes bleeding gums, inflammation, gum recession, and tooth loss. What’s more, periodontal disease increases your risk of heart disease by about 20% and has been linked to rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.
But at TLC Escondido Dental, you’re a person, not a number. Our personalized and high-tech periodontal care helps prevent and treat gum disease. Our minimally invasive and proven gum disease treatments in Escondido, CA, ease discomfort, prevent tooth loss, and keep your gums in great shape.
What Causes Gum Disease?
Everyone has bacteria living in their mouth. Good dental hygiene and regular dental cleanings will help keep this bacteria from causing problems. Otherwise, the bacteria will multiply and start to form plaque and tartar. These sticky white substances will build up on your teeth, fueling gum disease.
Signs You Might Be Suffering From Gum Disease:
- Gums that bleed easily
- Red, swollen tender gums
- Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
- Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
- Permanent teeth that are loose or separating
Time for some gum therapy! This treatment cleans deep between your gums and teeth along the roots. Sometimes called root planing and scaling, deep cleaning removes any tartar buildup down below your gum line. We’ll numb your mouth ahead of time and can split your treatment between several visits to ensure a comfortable experience.
