Gum Disease Treatment
Maintaining healthy gums is vital in protecting the overall health of your smile. Our dentist may recommend gum disease treatment if your gums become infected. We welcome you to call Custom Dental Care & Med-Spa today at 813-876-6930 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Ward Whitaker and learn more about gum disease treatment.
Common signs of gum disease include:
- Red or swollen gums
- Tender gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Loose teeth
- Pain when chewing
- Persistent bad breath
- Gum recession
We strongly recommend that you practice good oral hygiene and visit our office regularly for preventive care. This will help minimize your risk of developing gum disease and ensure that the condition can be diagnosed early if you do develop it. Untreated periodontal disease can lead to bone loss, gum recession and tooth loss. In addition, this condition has also been linked to systemic health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
