PERIODONTICS

Periodontist in Chicago, IL

Periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is a common health condition. Nearly three out of four adults in America suffer from mild to severe periodontal disease. At first, symptoms may seem harmless, however, they can quickly become damaging. It can lead to bone deterioration and teeth loss. At Comfort Family Dental, we regularly check for the presence of gum disease to catch it at its earliest stages so we can treat it effectively.

Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults over age 35. Gum problems begin innocently enough with unchecked bacterial growth in the mouth, often leading to gingivitis and more severe forms of gum disease. Our treatment options include the latest technologies and treatment methods to provide gentle, nonsurgical care for damaged gums so you can smile confidently.

Common Signs Of Gum Disease

Regularly checking for gum disease is best practice. The sooner it is noticed, the better the chances are at quickly resolving the issue. Look for these common symptoms to determine if a further checkup is necessary:

  • Red, puffy, or extremely tender gums
  • Gums that bleed when you floss, brush, or eat
  • Facial pain or discomfort within the mouth
  • Bad breath that continues even after good oral hygiene habits
  • Teeth that suddenly appear longer (a common sign of receding gum line)
