When visiting the dentist, one thing you don’t want to hear the dentist say is you have gum disease. You’ve likely heard of gum disease and what it can do to your teeth and general oral health. Ignoring gum disease can lead to tooth decay, ultimately losing them.

The truth is, though, that many Americans suffer from gum disease, with a good portion of them not knowing they even have it. Gum disease can progress mildly to the point that you may not notice any symptoms. That is why regular checkups at your dentist in North Hollywood are essential for preventing and slowing down gum disease.

Don’t let your oral health succumb to gum disease. Contact us today at (818) 593-0700 to set up your appointment now.

About Our Gum Disease Services

Gum disease forms due to tartar build up along the gum line. That tartar forms from plaque, the sticky substance that collects near the gum line. Each person has millions of bacteria that live in the mouth. When combined with saliva, food debris, and other particles, bacteria form plaque.

The symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Bleeding gums after brushing and flossing
  • Worsening bad breath
  • Your gums and teeth are sensitive
  • Loose teeth
  • Tooth loss
  • Gingivitis

    When gum tissue first becomes irritated by the colonization of bacteria at the gum line, they become inflamed. We call this gingivitis. This early stage of gum disease is difficult to detect. Gums may look swollen and red, but usually not to a large degree. One of the biggest indicators of gum disease is bleeding. Gingivitis affects only the gum tissue and does not threaten the underlying bone that supports teeth.

    Periodontitis

    If gingivitis is not detected nor treated, gum disease will progress into periodontitis, which translates into “inflammation around a tooth.” Periodontitis is more noticeable than gingivitis, with gum tissue pulling away from the teeth. The danger with gum recession is that pockets form, allowing bacteria to move into the area between the tooth root and the gums. As the infection progresses, the body responds by beginning to break down the connective tissues and bone that keep teeth stabilized. If the disease process continues, the risk of losing teeth significantly increases.
