When it comes to dentistry, most people tend to consider only the appearance and health of their teeth. However, oral health goes beyond just having a bright smile. It also includes taking care of our gums and the surrounding structures that support our teeth. 

So what does that involve? We’re glad you asked! 

Maintaining proper care of your gums and supporting structures starts with good oral hygiene.

What Is Periodontal Care?

So, what exactly is periodontal care? Periodontal care is the maintenance and treatment of the structures that support your teeth, including the gums, bone, and ligaments. These structures are crucial for maintaining a healthy and functioning smile. When neglected, periodontal disease can occur, causing damage to these supporting tissues and potentially leading to tooth loss.

Proper periodontal care involves regular check-ups with a qualified care provider who can assess your oral health and address any issues or concerns. After all, your gums deserve a little TLC too!

What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common condition that affects the gums and other structures that support your teeth. It starts with bacteria in plaque building up on the teeth, causing inflammation of the gums. If left untreated, this can progress to more serious stages where the gums start to pull away from the teeth and form pockets where bacteria can thrive.

Signs & Symptoms

Now, how do you know if you’re dealing with periodontal disease? Here are some signs to watch out for:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding when you brush or floss 
  • Persistent bad breath 
  • Receding gums 
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Discomfort when chewing

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it’s time to give your gums the attention they need.
