My gums aren bleeding. Does that mean I have healthy gums, free of periodontal disease?
Not necessarily. While bleeding gums are one sign of periodontal disease, only your dentist or hygienist can accurately diagnose periodontal (gum) problems. Periodontal disease is a serious oral health problem; left untreated can lead to bone and tooth loss. We are specially trained in the latest techniques for finding and treating periodontal disease, while minimizing any discomfort to you.
