Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects at least half of the adults in our country. The more research that has been conducted about gum disease, the more we have realized the vital importance of good oral care. It has been identified as a factor in the persistence of numerous health conditions, including diabetes, chronic inflammation, and cardiovascular disease.

The team at Centennial Dental Center can help you prevent, treat, and manage this disease using the latest information and techniques. Above all, we take a personal approach through which your unique needs are addressed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Symptoms?

The symptoms of this disease occur very subtly at first. As the stages of disease progress, symptoms will become more evident. This is what to look for:

Gingivitis - may cause chronic bad breath, redness or swelling in the gums, and gum recession. The color of your gums may appear dusky. Your gums may bleed when you brush or floss.

Periodontal disease - if infection is not treated, gingivitis will become periodontal disease. You may notice a bad taste in your mouth, and your teeth may begin to appear longer due to gum recession and root exposure. Gum tissue will pull away from teeth, and your teeth may feel slightly loose.

Advanced periodontal disease - as bone loss occurs and weakened gum tissue releases teeth, these structures may begin to shift position in the mouth. Abscess, or small pockets of pus, may also develop.
