Periodontal Care

Bacterial infection of the tissues that surround teeth is called periodontal disease. Common symptoms of periodontal disease are: Inflamed gums that bleed easily or form pus, receding gums, exposed or sensitive roots, spaces develop between teeth, bad breath, shaking tooth, teeth positions that change or become longer, and inability to chew easily.
Early stage of periodontal disease may not necessarily cause pain. It is often overlooked, so the timing of treatment is often missed. The disease will have become more serious by the time obvious symptoms appear. If periodontal symptoms are found, early treatment is recommended. Patients should receive professional periodontal examination, assessment, and treatment to maintain the health of periodontal tissues.  
Treatment programs include: Dental calculus removal (teeth cleaning), teeth whitening, sensitive roots, larger space between teeth, shaking teeth, pathological changes in gums (swelling and inflammation, pyorrhea, bleeding and atrophy, fibrous hyperplasia, and tumors), and dental implants.
