Periodontal Disease In California

Gum disease is divided into different stages. The condition can typically be rectified, and complications can be avoided if it is identified and managed early. Exercise proper oral hygiene and see your dentist twice a year for a checkup and deep cleaning to prevent gum disease. 

If, during your checkup, the dentist will identify signs of gum disease, they will give you advice on optimizing your oral care routine and propose specific therapeutic interventions at our clinic.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

  • Receding gums 
  • Metallic taste
  • Bleeding gums 
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth 

Gingivitis: The Early Stage of Gum Disease

At this stage, the inflammation only impacts the soft tissue and the patient may not identify any symptoms. Despite the fact that the symptoms may seem minor, it is critical to recognize gum disease immediately before it escalates to periodontitis.

Periodontitis: The Advanced Stage of Gum Disease

Periodontitis is a more severe form of gum disease that affects the gums and the bone structure that supports your teeth. If you don't visit the dentist regularly, you might not exhibit symptoms until you have mild periodontitis. 

Understanding the Stages of Gum Disease

Gingivitis

Gingivitis is caused by the buildup of germs around the gums. The gums appear red and swollen in the early stages of periodontitis, and they bleed when brushing. Plaque accumulation must be removed in order to prevent gum disease from developing.

Initial Periodontitis

Once the gums get inflamed, periodontal pockets grow around the teeth. Infection results from the accumulation of food and bacteria in these pockets. Both bacterial toxins and the immune system's sensitivity to infection can cause harm to the surrounding bone.

Moderate Intensity Periodontitis 

As the inflammation progresses, the symptoms of periodontitis become more acute, and some tenderness may ensue. The jawbone begins to erode, the teeth become looser, and the gums recede even more.

Last Stage Periodontitis

Advanced periodontitis, a leading cause of tooth loss in adults, is characterized by severe abscesses caused by the infection extending under the gums.
