Periodontal (Gum) Care
According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over the age of 35. The early stage of gum disease, known as gingivitis, is characterized by mild symptoms ranging from red, swollen gums to gums that bleed every time you floss. Gingivitis is completely reversible with non-invasive treatments and home care. However, if left untreated, gingivitis will eventually progress to periodontitis, a more serious form of gum disease. Periodontitis has been linked to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, uncontrolled diabetes and birth complications, so it’s important to keep up with your regular cleanings and checkups.
Gum disease used to require surgery more often than not, and while surgery is still sometimes the best option, our Schaumburg dentists can now treat many cases with less invasive techniques first.
