What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease is a serious gum infection that can destroy the jawbone, damage the gums, and lead to concerning complications like tooth loss. Periodontal disease is associated with poor oral hygiene.

Periodontal disease is also a risk factor for lung and heart diseases. Some of the symptoms of periodontal disease include swollen, red, and tender gums. To treat or prevent periodontal disease, stay up-to-date with your professional dental cleanings at East Tremont Medical Center where your dentist can professionally clean the pockets around your teeth and scrub hard-to-reach areas of your gums.

Root planing and scaling are some of the most effective methods used to ensure your mouth and gums stay healthy and heal properly.

East Tremont Medical Center recommends dental checkups and cleanings every six months.
