Do not underestimate periodontal (gum) disease

  • it can cause the gums separate from the teeth
  • it can harm the bone structure
  • it causes bad breath
  • it loosens and destabilizes the teeth
  • you may ultimately lose your tooth/teeth

Our recommendation: Let's do something about it - FAST.


What is periodontal (gum) disease?

gingivitis periodontal gum disease calgary se

Gingivitis or gum disease is a highly preventable condition. But it is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. Rates of gum disease are steadily growing among the global population, with significant increases of younger people.

Gum disease is not only dangerous to your oral health, but has also been shown to be an indicator of whole-body, and systemic diseases. Periodontal (Gum) disease begins as gingivitis—inflammation of the gums and tissues of the mouth—and quickly develops into full-blown gum disease if left untreated.

Acknowledge the signs and symptoms of gum disease and gingivitis. It can protect you from major damage to your overall health.

We believe that finding the right dentist should be simple and easy.

How can I check for signs of
gum disease at home?

Only a health professional can diagnose a disease. But there are many alert signs that you should take as a reminder to schedule a dental appointment as soon as possible. These include:

  • An increase in bad breath or a change in oral breath
  • Swollen, red, or bleeding gums
  • Loose gums, or pus coming out of gums
  • Changes in the amount of saliva you produce
  • Pain, especially when eating

What healthy teeth and
gums should feel like?

brushing teeth calgary se

For a healthy tooth, chewing should’t feel painful or feel sensitive to the extreme temperatures of your food and drinks. When your tooth is cracked, a sharp and momentary pain results from the pressure of your bite. A cracked or fractured tooth can also feel sensitive to temperature extremes.

Healthy gums should be pink, firm, and smooth. They should not bleed when you brush. Healthy gums should also be scalloped in appearance and should hold tight to each tooth. If caught early enough, periodontal (gum) disease can be avoided.
