Treating & Preventing Gum Disease

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is an infection of the gums that causes them to swell, bleed, and become painful. In severe cases, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. In most cases, gum disease starts as gingivitis and grows progressively more severe.

SYMPTOMS OF GUM DISEASE

 

  • Painful chewing

  • Receding gums

  • Swelling or redness of the gums

  • Persistent bad breath

  • Tooth sensitivity

  • Loose teeth

YOU CAN PREVENT GUM DISEASE

The best way to prevent gum disease is through a good oral hygiene routine. That means brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. Our dental hygienists can give you detailed tips on the best techniques for brushing and flossing.

Treating Gum Disease With Perio Protect®

Glenmore Family Dental Care treats gum disease with the Perio Protect® system. This system uses Perio Trays; self-sealing plastic mouthguards that deliver medicine directly to your teeth and gums. The Perio Tray helps to reach all the spaces between your teeth and gums where bacteria can hide and cause damage.

Used in combination with a strong dental hygiene routine and regular dental cleanings, the Perio Protect® system allows you to help fight gum disease at home on a daily basis.
