Did you know that over 60 million Americans have periodontitis? Gum disease is one of the most common issues in dentistry. When left untreated, you’re putting your overall health at risk. At Black Bear Dental, our extensive periodontics treatments aim to identify, prevent, and treat gum disease at any stage.

What is Gum Disease?

Periodontitis, or gum disease, is an infection of the gum that can ultimately affect your teeth and jawbone. It usually begins gradually, with plaque and tartar building up to a point where it causes your gums to become inflamed. This is known as gingivitis.

When left alone for too long, the condition worsens, usually causing the bone and gums to start separating from your teeth. This is when many patients typically notice loose teeth, which can lead to tooth loss.

Symptoms of Periodontitis

  • Swollen, tender, and red gums
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Pain
  • Bloody gums when brushing
