Periodontal Treatment in North York

Gum Disease North York

Periodontal disease (gum disease) damages the gums, ligaments and bone structure that support your teeth. It is caused by the bacterial infection that results from plaque and tartar buildup due to improper brushing and infrequent flossing.

Tartar that is left on the teeth can cause infection that will accumulate below the gum line, which can result in pockets to form between your gums and teeth. These ‘pockets’ make room for more infection and additional problems to occur including receding and pain in gum tissue, as well as loosened damaged teeth, constant breath issues and even tooth loss.

Like most ailments, the earlier Periodontal Disease is detected, the better it can be treated. Our North York family dentists and hygienists will perform thorough dental examination to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Gum symptoms:

  • Gums that bleed during normal (even gentle) brushing and flossing
  • Gums that are tender, sensitive or even painful to the touch
  • Gums that are swollen
  • Gums that appear shiny or bright red (like in many infections)
  • Gums that are receding

Teeth symptoms:

  • Teeth that are loose in an adult
  • Teeth that appear unusually long (due to receded gum)
  • Teeth with excessive tartar buildup along the visible gum line and in the ‘pocket’

Other symptoms:

  • Frequent or continuous bad breath
  • Overall discomfort in the mouth
