What are the symptoms of gum disease?

If you do develop symptoms, you may notice:

  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding gums
  • Longish appearing teeth as gums recede
  • Loose teeth
  • Periodic toothaches or jaw pain and redness

Left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss and health issues like heart attack and stroke. This condition has also been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Gallery Park Dental offers periodontal therapy in 60026 to help combat gum disease before it gets worse. 

Gum Disease Treatment in Glenview, IL

In the early stages of gum disease—called gingivitis—the situation is reversible. But when gingivitis graduates to full gum disease, the issue is only treatable. This is one of the reasons it is so important to visit your dentist regularly for dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease, our compassionate team will help restore your gums to better oral health and lower your risks for tooth loss and health problems. Treatment may include special deep cleanings, topical antibiotics, and a specialized hygiene routine to implement at home.
