Seeking relief from gum issues?

If you’re noticing symptoms like bleeding gums, inflammation, and sensitivity, it could indicate gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Untreated, this condition can escalate to serious oral health problems.

Causes of gum disease

  • Poor oral hygiene habits, such as inadequate brushing and flossing, lead to plaque buildup along the gumline
  • Smoking or tobacco use can weaken the immune system and provoke gum disease
  • Hormonal changes, such as those during pregnancy or menopause, can make gums more sensitive to bacteria
  • Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, can increase the risk of gum disease

Keep your gums healthy

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily to remove plaque and bacteria
  • Avoiding smoking or using tobacco products
  • Visiting our team regularly for professional cleanings and check-ups to detect and address early signs of disease
