Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a serious condition that can cause pain, discomfort, and damage to your teeth and gums. The bacteria and plaque that form in the mouth can lead to inflammation and infection of the gums, and can even cause tooth loss if left untreated.

Our team of experienced and knowledgeable dentists, hygienists, and other staff members are dedicated to providing superior care and helping you have a healthy, beautiful smile.
Gum disease is caused when plaque builds up on the teeth, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive. This plaque can harbor bacteria, which can then cause infection and inflammation of the gums. Without proper brushing and flossing, this bacteria can accumulate and cause serious damage to your gums and teeth.
There are several signs and symptoms of gum disease, including red, swollen, and tender gums, receding gum line, bad breath, and loose teeth. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to make an appointment with your dentist to determine the cause and begin treatment.
