Waukesha Periodontal Therapy Reduces Gum Disease and Improves Overall Health

Periodontal Disease: Symptoms, Risks, and Prevention

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums occurring when gingivitis has gone untreated. Near 70% of the U. S. population has some form of periodontal disease. Signs of periodontal disease include: swollen, red, tender, or bleeding gums; chronic bad breath, sensitive or loose teeth, painful chewing, or receding gums. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, call Ross our New Berlin Dentist for a checkup today. Periodontal disease progressively destroys the tissue and bone which support your teeth. If not effectively treated, it will severely undermine your oral health and put you at risk for developing other health problems.

Waukesha Periodontal TherapyWaukesha Area Periodontal Dentist Helps Prevent Bacteria Buildup

Certain bacteria can cause your gums to become irritated and inflamed. If plaque or biofilm harden, you can’t remove it by simply brushing and flossing at home. Unless the bacteria is thoroughly removed from your teeth and eradicated from the deepening pockets created by periodontal disease, it can cause tooth loss. If you have irritated gums or gingivitis, choose Ross Dental for your dental health care needs. My dental team and I will help you understand periodontal disease and the available treatment options. We also perform follow up care to keep the disease in remission.

Contact Ross Dental today for full details on periodontal therapy (treatment of gum disease). We will answer all of your questions, providing comprehensive information about the procedures, guidelines, gum maintenance and cost.
