Gum Treatment Brighton MA

Many Americans suffer from gum disease which can result in tooth loss and other serious health issues like heart disease and strokes. Patients of all ages can get gum disease and even with proper dental care, some are still at risk due to diabetes, stress, and predisposed genetics. Lifestyle choices like tobacco use, oral piercings, nail biting and toothpicks can negatively affect your gums as well. Minimizing or completely avoiding these behaviors will help protect them. Fortunately, we have options to improve your oral health and can provide guidance to maintain healthy gums.

What are the signs of gum disease?

Symptoms of gum disease can include:

  • Bleeding Gums
  • Gum Recession
  • Red Swollen Gums
  • Bad Breath
  • Hormonal Changes
  • Bruxism (teeth clenching/grinding)
  • Poor Teeth Alignment
  • Tooth Movement

It is important to note that gum disease can be undetectable to patients. You may not notice these symptoms at home. There are many difficult to reach areas of the month such as the back molars. That is why it is important to have your teeth and gums professionally examined by a dentist. Treatment is easier when detected early as the disease is progressive and involves four stages:

  • Gingivitis
  • Mild Periodontitis
  • Moderate Periodontitis
  • Advanced Periodontitis
