At Lincoln Dental Associates, we can provide the periodontal treatments you need to keep your gums nice and healthy. Your gums may seem like a small part of your mouth, but they’re an important part of your overall dental health.
Some studies claim that nearly 80% of Americans have experienced some form of gum disease. Some of these cases may not be serious, but if they don’t get the necessary treatment, it can lead to severe complications down the road.
When you come in for your regular checkups, we’ll always check the health of your gums and let you know if there is cause for concern.
Do You Need Treatment?
There are several signs that may suggest that it’s time for periodontal treatment. These signals include:
- Gums that bleed during regular brushing
- Constant bad breath
- Swollen and bright red gums
- Receding gums
- Shifting teeth
- Ongoing funny taste in the mouth
Give us a call if you begin to notice these symptoms. We’ll take a look at the situation and recommend the most effective treatment.
Treating Gum Disease
