Gum Disease & Your Health
What is gum disease?
Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is one of the most common diseases among Canadians. Despite your very best efforts in maintaining your oral health, gum disease may still occur.
Depending the severity of your gum disease, you may require gum therapy treatment.
What are the symptoms of gum disease?
You may not even be aware that you have gum disease, since sometimes, there are no symptoms at all.
However, some of the noticeable symptoms of gum disease include the following:
- Sore gums
- Swollen gums
- Red or purple gums
- Receding gums
- Bleeding gums
- Persistent bad breath
The best way to determine whether or not you have gum disease is to visit your dentist. Your dentist will be able to examine your mouth and create a plan for you.
If your periodontitis is advanced, we refer Surrey patients to the Periodontists at Proactice Periodontics in Burnaby for specialized treatment and management of periodontal (gum) disease.
