Expressions Dental Care in Richmond Hill provides non-surgical gum therapy for treatment of gum disease.
What is gum disease?
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It's typically caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque – a sticky film of bacteria – to build up on the teeth and harden. In advanced stages, gum (periodontal) disease can lead to sore, bleeding gums, painful chewing problems, and even tooth loss.
Symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bad breath that won’t go away
- Red or swollen gums
- Tender or bleeding gums
- Painful chewing
- Loose teeth
- Sensitive teeth
- Receding gums or longer appearing teeth
At Expressions Dental Care in Richmond Hill, we provide non-surgical treatment of gum disease.
