What is Periodontal Disease?

The ligaments, bone, and gums surrounding your teeth are called the periodontium. The periodontium is the base, or foundation, for all your teeth, and when you have a problem with these tissues your teeth and health can be in serious jeopardy. Because it affects the gums, periodontal disease or more commonly known as gum disease.

Common symptoms of gum disease include gums that are red, swollen, or bleed easily, halitosis (bad breath), a receding gum line, loose teeth, and changes to your bite. Fortunately, Richardson dentist, Dr. Kessner may be able to help slow or reverse these issues if addressed early enough.

Treating gum disease usually involves a deep cleaning or root planing done under a local anesthetic, along with local antibiotic agents. If gum disease is left alone, you may eventually need treatment through surgery or extraction, so it’s important to have gum problems checked promptly.
