Periodontic Gum Therapy

Our team at Newton Centre Dental repairs damaged gum health through periodontal gum therapy. Periodontal disease (periodontitis) is a chronic inflammatory infection of the gums. Healthy gums and bone provide a strong foundation for teeth, holding them tightly in their proper position. Healthy gums are also important for protecting your general wellbeing; studies show that people with periodontal disease are more likely to experience tooth-loss, heart disease, diabetes, and even certain cancers.

Knowing the signs of periodontitis is imperative to your oral health and general wellness. Some of the most common signs of periodontitis include: 

  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums

  • Persistent bad breath

  • Looseness or movement of the teeth

  • A change in bite (malocclusion)​​

Treatment of periodontitis is possible when you’re in the right hands. Our dental team has the knowledge and training to diagnose your symptoms and carefully evaluate your individual needs surrounding periodontic gum therapy. The earlier symptoms are caught, the higher your chances of a successful outcome. If you are concerned about the possibility of periodontal disease, contact our office to schedule your assessment today.
