Periodontists are specialists in the treatment and surgery of the tissue around the teeth. Gum disease is one of the most frequent conditions plaguing your oral health. These problems can arise from a high buildup of plaque.
Most patients discover periodontal problems only when they have persisted for a extensive amount of time. It is recommended to practice proper oral hygiene, daily dental care, and schedule regular dental visits to minimize the risk of gum disease.
Gum diseases can range from moderate, mild, to severe. There are treatments available for every type of gum disease. Common symptoms of gum disease include receding gums, discolored or deteriorating tooth enamel, holes in the gum tissue, infected gums, and tooth loss.
Gum disease can be damaging to your dental health. By practicing the proper preventative care and hygiene, you can protect yourself against the risks of gum disease. Please call and schedule an appointment at our office for a Santa Margarita periodontal evaluation.
