Gum Disease

If you spit out blood after you brush, if your gums look red, swollen or tender, or if your teeth move and are loose, you may have gum disease. 


How bad is it???

Visit The Relaxing Smile and I can advise you on the proper treatment.  We will measure how tight or loose the gums are, chart where the bleeding is present, and do x-rays to tell if and where bone loss is occuring.


Gingivitis is the early form of gum disease.  It is most commonly just swollen red gums.  Bleeding is common and it is generally painless.


The good news about gingivitis is that it is totally reversible!

With good hygiene, proper nutrition, and regular dental checkups, those gums will be healthy in about 2 weeks.


If improvement takes any longer, you may have an underlying disease such as diabetes.



Periodontitis is a more serious gum disease because it involves bone loss.


As gingivitis progresses, the plaque and tartar combination irritates the gum and bone tissue.  Both begin to shrink and move away from the infected area.


This leads to bone loss and eventually tooth loss.  Don’t let this happen to you.


If you think you have gum disease, come in right away.


Healthy gums are very important for healthy teeth.


Gingivitis and periodontitis can damage your bite and even cause you to lose teeth. To prevent this from happening, we take steps to stop the process and restore your dental health for the long haul.
