Gum Disease

At Beverly Hills Prestige Dental Group, our goal is maintaining your overall oral health, including the health of your gums.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal or gum disease arises when plaque and calculus (tartar) build up around the teeth and gum line, causing deterioration to the area and even the jawbone. The gums often appear red and swollen and may bleed. Although the earliest stages of gum disease are typically painless, it is critical you treat periodontal as soon as possible. The disease can spread from the gums and destroy the gums.

What are the symptoms of periodontal disease?

Symptoms and signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Bleeding in the gums
  • Continued bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Pus accumulation around the gums and teeth
  • Receding gums near the gum lines
  • Inflamed or red gums
  • Discomfort, pain, and tenderness in the gums

What causes periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is caused by the buildup of bacteria in the gums and tissue surrounding teeth.

What health risks are associated with periodontal disease?

Apart from the risk of losing your teeth, there are a number of serious health risks that associated with gum disease, apart from the possibility of losing your teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can jeopardize the health of your entire immune system.
