Gum Disease
Regina

Gum disease is a progressive oral health concern. Left untreated, it will get worse and harder to treat over time. In its advanced stages, gum disease is very painful, but at first, it may not be noticeable from a pain standpoint. If you believe you may have gum disease, it’s important to visit Signature Smiles in Regina, SK, as soon as possible to start the treatment.

 

Signs of Gum Disease

Not sure if you have gum disease? Keep in mind it’s not always painful at first! However, by inspecting your mouth you may be able to assess the signs of gum disease. The signs to look out for include:
  •  

    Pus around the teeth and gums.

  •  

    Abnormal sensitivity to cold or hot.

  •  

    Redness, tenderness, or swelling of the gums.

  •  

    Bleeding Gums when brushing or flossing.

  •  

    Pain with chewing.

  •  

    Persistent bad breath or bad taste.

If you notice any of the above or you are still unsure if you have gum disease, our team is happy to provide a detailed oral health assessment.

Stages of Gum Disease

Gum disease will progress over time, meaning that it has a few recognizable stages. The cause of gum disease is the buildup of plaque, which will harden as tar. Incorrect or infrequent brushing and flossing commonly lead to plaque buildup, especially if the teeth are very tight together.

The stages of gum disease are:
  • Gingivitis. The earliest stage of gum disease, marked by dental plaque buildup at the gum line. This is an acritical time for an intervention, as the disease can be reversed if corrected during this stage.
  • Periodontitis. Left untreated, gingivitis will develop into periodontitis. Now, the gums will form a pocket below the gum line, increasing the plaque penetration. Gum disease treatment in Regina, SK can still prevent further damage and save your teeth.
  • Advanced periodontitis. At this stage, the plaque has damaged your gum and roots so badly that teeth will become loose and may shift. Your speech, eating, and bite will be dramatically affected, and treatment often requires extraction.
