It’s human to take your health for granted. Unfortunately, things break down when you neglect them, your teeth and gums are included. When you don’t brush or floss regularly, plaque a sticky film filled with bacteria, forms on your teeth. Plaque can infect your gums and the sulcus, the V-shaped crevice just below the gum line. At this stage, the infection is called gingivitis, if it progresses , it’s called periodontitis. Both are forms of periodontal disease.
Warning signs of periodontal disease are:
– spaces developing between your teeth
– pus between your teeth
– loose teeth
– receding gums
Fortunately, gingivitis is reversible with professional care and good home dental care. Please call our office to make appointment.
