What is Gum Disease?

Periodontal (gum) disease is commonly defined as an inflammation of the gums, which can be mild or severe depending on the stage of disease. If the swelling of the gums persists, it can impact the bone that supports and surrounds your teeth. Gum disease is a result of plaque—a sticky deposit on teeth in which bacteria grows and multiplies. This bacteria eventually wreak havoc on your teeth, gums, and even bones if left untreated.

When you arrive for your scheduled appointment here at Cunning Dental, you can be confident that you are getting the best possible treatment that modern dentistry has to offer. Our advanced diagnostic tests and treatment options avoid the worst case scenario of losing your teeth as a result of progressive periodontal disease.

Do I Have Periodontal Disease?

Signs and symptoms of gum disease often include:


What are the Stages of Gum Disease?

  1. Gingivitis
    Gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease, is an inflammation of the gums due to plaque buildup at the gum line. Gingivitis is often the result of inadequate oral hygiene. Fortunately, reversing gum disease at this stage is possible with proper oral care and professional treatments.

  2. Periodontitis
    Periodontitis is when the supporting fibers and bone that keep your teeth in place are damaged severely. A pocket below the gums can form at this stage, trapping plaque and food particles that provoke further gum damage. Improving your personal oral hygiene and seeking immediate treatment can prevent painful complications.

  3. Advanced Periodontitis
    This critical stage of gum disease signals the destruction of the bone and fibers supporting your teeth. As a result, your teeth will begin to loosen and shift inside the mouth. Aggressive gum disease treatments are imperative at this point. If neglected, saving your teeth may no longer be possible.

How Does Cunning Dental Treat Gum Disease?

Our certified and experienced periodontist can perform non-surgical procedures devised to stop the progression of periodontal disease and improve the health of your gums. Our procedures include root planing and deep scaling to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria deep within the gums and between teeth.
