Early symptoms of gum disease (gingivitis) include bad breathe, tender gums or bleeding gums. If gum disease is left untreated it can lead to more advanced stages, known as Periodontitis, which results in bone loss, receding gums and dental sensitivity.
Gum disease is caused by the build up of plaque and calculus but can be prevented with correct brushing and flossing along with regular checkups and cleans.
At Infinity Dental Care we will assess the severity of your gum disease and recommend either a deep clean (teeth scaling) or for more severe cases we may begin Periodontal Disease Treatment.

You might notice some bleeding when you brush or floss.
Bleeding, redness, and painful or sore gums can be a symptom of gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) that arises due to a number of reasons:
Gingivitis is an early stage of gum disease. If not addressed early on, it may progress to periodontal disease, which involves the inflammation of the gums, ligamentsand jaw bones. People who have periodontal disease usually present with loose teeth and bad breath.
Sometimes, if you improve your brushing, your gums will bleed less without a visit to the dentist. But if your gums bleed regularly and you notice plaque and hard tartar build up on your teeth, it is best to book a time to see Dr Jack about your gums.
