Periodontics in Lake Orion
Ensuring that your teeth have a strong foundation of healthy gums and bone is a vital part of maintaining good oral health. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting your teeth. We take periodontics seriously and offer laser treatment that has less bleeding and swelling, and ultimately less pain.
Symptoms of Periodontal Disease:
- Swollen, puffy and bleeding gums
- Spaces between teeth
- Tooth sensitivity
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
If not adequately treated, periodontal disease can result in loose teeth and can lead to tooth loss. Early detection and treatment are key in ensuring successful treatment.
Preventing Periodontal Disease:
- Brush and floss your teeth daily
- See your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and monitoring
- If diagnosed with periodontal disease, get treatment early
