Gum Disease and Deep Cleanings

If your gingivitis in Bellflower is caught early, it may be reversible

Harmful bacteria in your mouth are the most common cause of gum disease. If you are having problems with your gums, such as swelling, bleeding or infection, those are signs of gingivitis or gum disease. If you are in the developing stages of gum disease in Bellflower, our doctors will suggest a deep cleaning. Often people think of a deep cleaning like a routine teeth cleaning, but it is actually quite different. A deep cleaning helps get rid of the harmful bacteria, which could potentially affect your jawbone and other support for your teeth causing you to lose them. Often deep cleanings are separated into a couple of visits in order to clean the affected areas with detail. Because a deep cleaning involves removing tartar below the gum line, it is a completely different approach when compared to regular cleanings. Schedule your appointment with us today or call us at (323) 486-6579 for more information on gum disease in Bellflower.

Symptoms and Severity of Gingivitis

Learn what to look for as signs of gingivitis in Bellflower

So how do you know if you have gum disease? You won’t be able to know for sure until our dental professionals at Bellflower Dental Group examine you, however, there are some clear symptoms you should look out for. Classic symptoms include frequent bleeding, swelling and tenderness of the gums. Also, you may notice your gums are red and tender, and sometimes your gums will recede from your teeth. Another common symptom is bad breath. The bad breath is caused by pockets, which may form between your teeth and gums, as that is where food can collect in your mouth. When and if these pockets form, you should seek professional help immediately. Gingivitis can lead to significant problems such as bone loss and losing your teeth. Luckily if you are in the early stages of gum disease, it can be reversed. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms of gingivitis in Bellflower, please give us a call at (323) 486-6579. We want to help you keep your beautiful pearly whites healthy.
