Periodontal Disease Cary, NC
Periodontal disease is a condition that occurs if plaque buildup and gingivitis is left untreated. Gums become inflamed, red and may bleed when flossing or brushing teeth. As gingivitis gets worse it can lead to periodontal disease or periodontitis. Periodontal disease can cause receding gums and possible tooth loss. Bad breath, pockets around teeth, gum and dental pain are also symptoms of periodontitis. If left untreated periodontitis can damage bones and tissues surrounding teeth that can produce conditions for tooth loss. Patients may notice pain when eating, teeth out of alignment, gums receding and sore or sensitive teeth. Look no further than Zen Triangle Dentistry for treatment of periodontal disease Cary, NC.
