Gum Disease Control

Tooth loss in adults is most commonly caused by periodontal or gum disease. It is an inflammatory disease that attacks the bones, gums and other supporting structures in the mouth. Though a serious condition, it can be resolved with Superior Smiles’s excellent dental care and oral hygiene maintenance.

Preventing Gum Disease

When plaque isn’t properly removed from your teeth, your gums may start to recede. This recession creates a pocket between the tooth and the gum, causing damage to the bone that will result in periodontal disease. The symptoms include

  • A buildup of calculus (tartar)
  • A change in your bite
  • Bad breath or an unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Gums that bleed while brushing or flossing
  • Gums that shrink away from teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Red, swollen or sore gums
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
