Protect Your Teeth Against Periodontal Disease

Periodontal Therapy in Marshville, NC

Periodontal disease, also called periodontitis, is a severe infection of the gums. It is attributed to bacteria that have been allowed to form on your teeth and gums. When you ignore the plaque on your teeth, it releases toxins that break down the natural fibers that hold your gums and support your teeth.

In a person with periodontal disease, the inner layer of the gum and bone pulls away from the teeth and forms periodontal pockets. It can damage your teeth and bones as the disease progresses, leading to gum line recession and tooth loss. We offer treatment for gum disease in Marshville, NC, so that the damage can be stopped when discovered early and when proper oral hygiene is maintained.

Symptoms of periodontal disease include:

  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums

  • Gum recession, or gums pulling away from teeth

If you notice any of the listed signs or symptoms, please contact us immediately to request a consultation and assessment. Together, we can prevent gum disease and maintain your fresh and healthy smile.
