Symptoms of Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is a serious gum infection caused by the accumulation of harmful oral bacteria. When plaque, tartar, and food debris isn’t regularly cleared from your mouth, it creates the perfect environment for these bacteria to multiply. They release inflammation-causing toxins and acid that causes enamel erosion, which results in a variety of symptoms. Some signs of this condition include:

If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s important to visit your dentist as soon as possible. Without early intervention, the condition can result in increasingly worse effects.

Possible Treatment Options

At Dr. Aaronson & Associates, our in-office periodontist, Dr. Maxim Podolsky offers multiple custom-tailored treatment plans to combat gum disease. When we spot the disease before it has had a chance to get worse, we may suggest a two-appointment treatment called scaling and root planing. This is essentially an oral deep-cleaning to remove all tartar and bacteria from your mouth and reattach your gums to your teeth if they have begun to recede. For more complex situations, we also offer antibiotic therapy as well as laser treatment.

With a gum specialist on staff, there’s no case of gum disease that we can’t handle. You’re sure to feel safe under Dr. Podolsky’s experienced and knowledgeable care. If you have been diagnosed with this condition or have noticed symptoms, don’t hesitate to request an appointment on our website today.
