Periodontal disease is a condition that’s very common in adults. It is most frequently caused by poor oral hygiene and is characterized by inflammation and bleeding of the gum tissue. When caught in its earliest stage (gingivitis) it can be reversed, but when it develops to more advanced stages, it can only be managed with regular periodontal care.

Gum Disease Symptoms

Gum disease can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including chronic bad breath that can lead to embarrassment and affect your interactions with others. Additional symptoms of the condition include:

Dr. Kiya Green is a respected periodontist who is highly experienced in treating periodontal disease with advanced methods. She offers a variety of treatments designed to improve gum health, including periodontal maintenance, scaling and root planing, and guided tissue regeneration.

Periodontal maintenance is a treatment program that prevents long-term damage from gum disease. Scaling and root planing helps stop the progression of periodontal disease by removing bacteria-filled plaque and calculus from the teeth and periodontal pockets. Guided tissue regeneration is a surgical procedure that helps the body regenerate lost bone.

When you receive regular treatments for periodontal disease, you’ll notice a reduction in your symptoms. Your gums will become less swollen and painful, and your bad breath will become less noticeable. You’ll also probably notice an increase in confidence as your oral health and appearance improves.
