If left untreated, periodontal disease (gum disease) can destroy the structural foundation (bone) around your teeth.
Symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- swollen gums and bleeding gums
- visible pus surrounding the gums and teeth
- halitosis (bad breath)
- loose teeth
Chronic infection within the gums can eventually lead to tooth loss. Treating this disease early is the key to having success and it starts with daily brushing and flossing techniques at home. Schedule an appointment at East Village Dental and let your downtown Calgary Dentists, Dr. Greg Broyde and Dr. Navdeep Dhaliwal, provide you with a periodontal assessment and treatment plan that suits your needs.
