Perth’s Recommendation for Periodontal Treatment
If treated early, gum disease is a manageable condition. At Aim Dental Group, we advise that if you have gum disease, or suspect you do, you should get it treated as soon as possible. Statistics show that around 75% of over-35s have or have had gum disease of some sort, so it’s important to go for regular check-ups to your dentists to ensure good oral health.
What are the signs of gum disease?
Early signs include inflammation of the gums (gingivitis)
Bleeding of the gums
Receding gum line
Bad taste in your mouth
Spaces appearing between teeth
The next stage of gum disease is periodontitis, which damages the teeth, bone and gums. If left untreated, this can cause teeth to fall out.
Associated health risks
It’s been proven that if you have gum disease, you increase your risk of developing heart disease, vascular disease, and diabetes, as well as other health issues. As a result, it’s imperative that you see your dentist immediately if you think you might have gum disease or the early symptoms of it.
