If your gums are swollen, red, or tender, or if your gums bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. Other common symptoms of periodontal disease include loose teeth, painful chewing, persistent bad breath, and receding gums that make your teeth appear longer than normal. Following an exam at our office, our dentist and team will be able to determine whether you suffer from periodontal disease.
The treatment for gum disease is based on your specific dental needs. Depending on the severity of the condition, our dentist may recommend additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), or gum surgery. We strive to help you restore your oral health and halt the progress of the disease. For more information on periodontal treatment, we welcome you to call 248-650-2440 or visit our office soon. We look forward to caring for your smile!
