Understanding Gum Disease
Gum disease is one of the most common diseases for Canadians. It is also known as periodontal disease. Despite your best efforts with brushing and flossing, you may still experience gum disease.
Depending on your level of gum disease, you may require gum therapy treatment.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
It is not always possible to know if you have gum disease as the symptoms do not always present themselves in the beginning stages. However, sometimes gum disease can show itself through:
- Sore gums
- Receding gums
- Bleeding gums
- Red or purple gums
- Bad breath
- Swollen gums
At Carbonear Dental, we know the importance of helping our patients prevent oral disease before it happens. Through routine cleanings with your dental hygienist, we can help you prevent oral health issues and maintain a healthy smile.
