Protect Yourself from Periodontal Disease

If you’re facing periodontal disease, you’re far from alone. Most adults develop this advanced form of gum disease at some time in their lives. To learn how to treat it and beat it, check out this expert advice.

Causes of the Condition

Gum disease is the earliest stage of periodontal disease and it’s typically caused when a sticky substance called plaque begins to build up on your teeth. If not removed with daily dental care, then it can inflame and infect the tender gums that support your teeth. If you don’t seek immediate treatment, it can progress into periodontal disease and do damage to your teeth and gums. Since it’s easiest to treat at an early stage, call an affordable dentist if you notice signs of a possible problem.

Signs that Signal Gum Disease

Periodontal disease affects different people in different ways. Some people experience extensive soreness and symptoms, while others don’t know they have gum disease until a dentist discovers it. If you notice any of these symptoms, see an affordable dentist immediately to protect your dental health. The most common signs include:

  • Swollen, red gums
  • Gums that bleed, especially when brushing and flossing
  • Receded gums
  • Ongoing bad breath
  • Change in bite alignment
  • Loose teeth
  • Discomfort with dentures

Preventing Periodontal Disease

While gum disease may be common, you can avoid the dental discomfort by taking good care of your teeth. Follow these simple steps to keep your smile safe and healthy:

  1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
  2. Floss daily.
  3. Have a healthy diet.
  4. Avoid tobacco.
  5. Get regular check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist.
