Non-Surgical Gum (Periodontal) Therapy in Belleville
Periodontal Disease is a form of gum disease that, if left untreated, causes the loosening and eventual loss of teeth. Periodontal Disease is the result of a gum infection in which bacteria become trapped underneath your gums. These bacteria damage and destroy the bone which holds in your teeth.
Signs You May Have Periodontal Disease:
- It hurts when you floss
- It hurts when you brush
- Your gums bleed when you brush or floss
- You notice your gums are very red
- You notice your gums are puffy and sensitive.
Non-Surgical Gum Therapy is the first-line of defense to treat Periodontal Disease. This is a painless procedure in which the doctor will remove the calcified bacteria deposits which are growing beneath your gums. Once these calcified deposits are removed, your gums can begin to heal.
