Gingivitis and Gum Disease Impact Overall Dental Health

Gingivitis and gum disease in Austell can lead to many dental issues and need to be treated as soon as possible at Dr. Terry Hopper Family Dentistry and Orthodontics.

If you are experiencing swollen tender gums which are sensitive, painful or prone to bleeding, it is highly likely you have gum disease caused by gingivitis. Severe redness is another key indicator that you have a serious problem on your hands. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. If not properly treated, it can be a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Gum disease is usually painless, so it is likely you may not know you have it. It is caused by plaque which is the sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth. Effective treatment of gingivitis in Austell will result in healthier gums. Schedule an appointment with our office today for an evaluation.

Gingivitis Needs Quick Action

Gingivitis in Austell needs the serious fast action of Dr. Terry Hopper to prevent progression and tooth loss.

Many times patients fear something may be wrong but do not realize they are suffering from gingivitis. Gingivitis can be a silent disease. While some patients experience pain, tender gums or sensitivity, or red, swollen or even bleeding gums, others remain symptom free from a patient standpoint. The best way to check for gum disease and remain gingivitis free is through regular dental cleanings and checkups. At your cleanings the hygienist and dentist will note receding gums, severe redness of gums or bleeding while cleaning, scaling, brushing or flossing and persistent bad breath. If your gingivitis develops into a severe case, you may also develop deep pockets beneath your gums, wide spread tooth decay, loose or rotten teeth and serious changes in your bite. If not treated in time, the tissue around the roots of your teeth can become so damaged that you can actually lose teeth and experience bone loss which will prevent the possibility of dental implants. Here at Dr. Terry Hopper Family Dentistry and Orthodontics, we are well equipped and highly experienced in dealing with gingivitis and gum disease in Austell. We hope you will give our team a call for an evaluation as to your condition so we can get you caught up on cleanings and form a periodontal treatment plan if necessary.
