Gum Disease Therapy

Gum disease is one of the most common dental problems adults face, but gum disease can begin at just about any age. Gum disease often develops slowly and without causing any pain. Sometimes you may not notice any symptoms until the disease is serious and you are in danger of losing teeth.

The good news is gum disease can almost always be prevented; if it starts, it can be treated and it can even be turned around in its early stages by the dentists at TLC Dental Care.

If gum disease is not treated, you can have gums that are always sore, red and puffy, get a painful infection (called an abscess) in the area between your teeth and gums or lose your teeth.

Has periodontal disease been linked with other health problems? Periodontal disease (gum disease) has been linked with other health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and bacterial pneumonia. Pregnant women with periodontal disease are more likely to have a premature baby or one that weighs too little at birth. People with diabetes and periodontal disease have more trouble controlling their blood sugar, which can lead to additional health problems.
