PERIODONTICS

A healthy gum is the image of a clean and beautiful mouth.

 

Periodontal disease can start as a simple inflammation of the gums, known as gingivitis and evolve to a more advanced disease called periodontitis where there is gum damage and loss of the supporting bone of the teeth.

 

It may show in the following ways:

  • Sensitive, red and inflamed gums

  • Night bleeding, or when brushing or flossing

  • Dental mobility, loose or separated teeth

  • Persistent bad breath

  • Sensitivity to temperature changes

  • Segregation of purulent exudate in some region of the gum
