Gum Disease

Gum Disease

Gum disease or periodontitis causes the bone that holds your teeth in place to break down. It is a chronic disease with slow or rapid degeneration that varies from individual to individual and that can cause tooth loss if left untreated. Upon each preventive care examination, we gather a collection of data of the periodontal status which will help us to detect periodontitis.

Several factors can cause periodontitis. Significant tartar build-up and inadequate dental hygiene can be monitored through specific scaling procedures and personalized hygiene instructions. Other factors are harder to control such as heredity, stress, some systemic diseases and hormonal changes.

Our team of hygienists will take the time to explain and give you advice to help you stabilize this disease.
