Overview

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a serious oral and systemic health issue. At Washington Center for Dentistry, the talented dentists offer periodontal treatments to reduce symptoms of gum disease and prevent long-term issues. However, effective treatment relies heavily on swift intervention. Avoiding gum disease can often be accomplished by maintaining good oral hygiene practices such as brushing after every meal and snack, flossing at least once a day, and visiting Washington Center for Dentistry for dental cleanings and examinations every 6 months. A healthy mouth means a healthy patient.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Gingivitis is the most common, mildest form of gum disease and is noticeable due to red or swollen gums that bleed easily. When left untreated, gingivitis can quickly advance to periodontitis, a serious form of gum disease that may produce symptoms such as:

  • A persistent bad taste in the mouth
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Gum separation from the tooth
  • Pus in between teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Changes to bite strength and tension
  • Oral pain

Treatment

The initial symptoms of gum disease can often be treated through deep cleanings at our Washington DC dental office, along with a more rigorous at-home routine. However, treating periodontitis may require advanced dentistry services. Our general dentists will assess your periodontal issues and provide the treatments best suited to restore optimal oral health.
