What Is Gum Disease?

You can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums, and periodontal disease — an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place — is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in dental patients.

In fact, recent studies show that nearly half of adults in the U.S. suffer from some form of gum disease — and that percentage is much higher for older adults over the age of 65.

What Causes Gum Disease?

Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that builds up on your teeth and is the leading cause of periodontal disease.

But where does plaque come from? Poor dental hygiene habits — such as brushing and flossing — allow plaque to build up and harden on your teeth, eventually leading to swollen, red, and bleeding gums, which are the first signs of gum disease.

While gum disease can jeopardize your permanent teeth and your overall dental health, it’s also been linked to other more serious health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, and even Alzheimer’s disease.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Unfortunately, many people may have gum disease without even knowing it. Symptoms in the early stages of the disease can be hard to detect, which is why it’s so important to visit our Boerne office on a regular basis for oral exams and professional cleanings.

Some warning signs that indicate you may be experiencing either the early or advanced stages of gum disease include the following:

  • Gums that are sore, swollen, or red
  • Gums that bleed when you brush, floss, or eat hard food
  • Sores on your gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Teeth that are separating
  • Receding gums (gums that are pulling away from your teeth)
  • Persistent bad breath
  • A change in your bite
  • A difference in how your dentures, partials, or dental bridge(s) fit

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our Boerne office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Alghadban. He and our expert team can improve your gum health and help you keep your smile for life.

Periodontal Treatments at Complete Dental Studio

Most dental practices don’t have a trained, experienced periodontist — which means that, if you’re diagnosed with gum disease during a regular oral exam and cleaning visit, your dentist will likely tell you that you need to schedule an appointment with a periodontist at another office.

Fortunately, at Complete Dental Studio, Dr. Alghadban offers a full range of periodontal treatment options to our patients in Boerne and the surrounding areas, including:

  • Connective Tissue Grafts/Gum Grafts
  • Esthetic Crown Lengthening
  • Dental Implants
  • All-On-Four Dental Implants
  • Tooth Extractions
  • Sedation Dentistry
