Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the soft tissues that hold your teeth in place. It’s typically caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—to build up on the teeth and harden.

In advanced stages, periodontal disease can lead to sore, bleeding gums; painful chewing problems; and even tooth loss.

You may need surgery for severe gum disease (periodontitis) if it cannot be cured with antibiotics or root planning and scaling.

 Types of surgery include:

Gingivectomy

Gingivectomy removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum tissue to get rid of pockets between the teeth and gums. A gum specialist (periodontist) or oral surgeon often will do the procedure.

Open Flat Procedure

An open flap procedure cleans the roots of a tooth. A periodontist or an oral surgeon often performs this procedure.

Symptoms of gum disease include:

Bad breath that won’t go away
Red or swollen gums
Tender or bleeding gums
Painful chewing
Loose teeth
Sensitive teeth
Receding gums or longer appearing teeth

Helpful Tips

Brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
Flossing regularly to remove plaque from between teeth. Or, you can use a device such as a special brush, wooden or plastic pick, or a “water flosser” recommended by a dental professional.
Visiting our dentist routinely for a check-up and professional cleaning.
Quitting smoking.
