If you have bleeding, swelling or tenderness in your gums while brushing, these could be signs of gingivitis or gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and bone loss. This condition can also negatively affect other areas of your health. Recent studies have shown advanced gum disease is linked to heart disease, stroke and pregnancy complications.
If you believe that you may be suffering from gum disease, do not hesitate; visit us at Brampton Dental Group to receive an examination. If you are affected by gum disease, treatments include removing plaque, tartar, bacteria and the infected gum tissue. This allows your gums to return back to their healthy state.
