Periodontitis, also generally called gum disease, is an inflammation of the tissue and supporting structures of the teeth, often causing shrinkage of the gums and loosening of the teeth, as well as other potential systemic diseases.
As with all of our dental services, including treatment of periodontitis in Bellevue, we use a holistic approach to periodontal treatment to re-establish a healthy oral state that includes teeth retention and bone support, in addition to inducing healing in other body areas by reducing causation of chronic infection.
Periodontitis can progress without indications or symptoms, such as pain. However, these are a few of the more common signs and symptoms of periodontitis:
- Bleeding when brushing and flossing
- Swelling, pain or redness of the gums
- Halitosis, or bad breath
- Loosening or shifting of teeth in affected areas
- Pus release from between the teeth
Call Whole Body Dental to schedule a dental checkup as soon as possible if some of these common signs and symptoms of periodontitis are present to slow or halt progressive bone and tissue loss.
