Treat Your Gum Disease Now before It’s Too Late
Half of Americans adults suffer from gum disease. That’s over 60 million people. That’s because gum disease is easy to get and hard to catch. Gum disease begins when plaque builds up between your teeth and gums. Since there is no pain or discomfort in the early stages, you may not even know you have gum disease until it is severe. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss or even heart disease.
If you have any of these symptoms, make an appointment with Dr. Bonaventure right now.
- Gums that bleed easily
- Red or swollen gums
- Loose teeth
- Receding gums (or teeth that look long)
- Chronic tooth sensitivity
- Bad breath
- Paces or pockets between teeth
The good news is that gum disease is treatable. If we catch it early enough, our team can reverse the effects of gum disease and give you back your healthy smile. With routine checkups and cleanings, we may be able to prevent it entirely.
If your gum disease is more severe, don’t worry. Deep cleaning, root scaling and antibiotics all are non-surgical ways Dr. Bonaventure can treat your gum disease. Even in the worst cases, surgery to reduce your gum pockets can keep your smile intact.
