Preventing and treating gum disease
Do you suffer from bleeding or sore gums, chronic bad breath, or sensitive teeth? These symptoms are all signs that you may be suffering from gum disease. Gum disease, caused by bacteria that infect the gums and tissue around the roots of your teeth, can lead to serious complications such as bone or gum loss, lost teeth, or bone infections. Gum disease has also been linked to other health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
At Terra Nova Dental Centre, we offer periodontal treatment to our Richmond patients to prevent and treat gum disease before it causes more serious health problems. You can do your own part to prevent gum disease by brushing and flossing your teeth regularly, and by coming to the dentist for regular professional cleaning and checkups.
If you suspect you may have gum disease, or to book a cleaning and examination, contact our office today.
