PERIODONTAL DISEASE TREATMENT IN VISTA, CA

Call (760) 940-4266

Periodontist in Vista, CA

Periodontal disease is detrimental to the gums and the bond that support the teeth. Plaque, a sticky film, must be removed or tartar forms. When plaque and calculus are not removed, they begin to destroy the gums and bone. A periodontist in Vista, California from North County Dental Care, can help you maintain optimal oral health.

 

About Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is characterized by swollen, red and/or bleeding gums. Most people that have it don’t even know it. This is because the disease is usually pain-free in the initial stages. This is why scheduling regular preventative dental exams every six months with a general dentist is important.

Not only is periodontal disease the number one reason for tooth loss, but research suggests that there may even be a link between the inflammation and bacteria of periodontal disease and other conditions such as strokes, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and increased risk during pregnancy.

To prevent periodontal disease, follow a regular at-home oral hygiene routine, eat a balanced diet, and have regular dental checkups.

 

Signs and Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

A periodontist in Vista, California can detect signs and symptoms associated with periodontal disease, such as:
 Bleeding gums – Gums should never bleed with a regular at-home oral hygiene routine.
 Loose teeth – This can also be caused by bone loss or weakened periodontal fibers (fibers that support the tooth to the bone).
 New spacing between teeth – This is caused by bone loss.
 Persistent bad breath – This is caused by bacteria in the mouth.
 Pus around the teeth and gums – This is a key sign that an infection is present.
 Receding gums
 Red and puffy gums
 Tenderness or discomfort – Plaque, calculus, and bacteria irritate the gums and teeth.
