Gum Treatments

The Key to Keeping Your Teeth for a lifetime!

Gum disease is a common dental problem among adult Canadians. If you have been diagnosed with chronic gum disease, you may be at risk of losing your teeth. Periodontal disease may progress painlessly, producing few obvious signs, even in the late stages of the disease. At Dentistry in Meadowvale Village, your dentist and dental hygienist will evaluate:

  • Gums that bleed during and after tooth brushing
  • Red, swollen or tender gums
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
  • Receding gums
  • Formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Changes in the way teeth fit together on biting, or in the fit of partial dentures.

The good news is that with great dental care, and proper dental habits at home, gum disease can almost always be prevented. In its early stages, gum disease can be stopped and sometimes even reversed when treated.

Links between gum and other health conditions:

  • People with gum disease may be at greater risk of heart or artery disease,
  • Gum disease can affect the severity of diabetes, and the risk of diabetic complications
  • Pregnant women may be at a higher risk of delivering pre-term, low birth weight babies.
