Why Is Gum Health Important?

Healthy gums are essential for a beautiful smile and excellent oral health. Routine preventive care, including regular checkups and cleanings, are the best way to keep your gums healthy and avoid damage, disease, and other concerns. The most common gum-related condition is called periodontitis, or as it’s more commonly known, gum disease.

Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages your soft tissues. Without treatment, it can cause lasting damage and even tooth loss. Gum disease typically first appears in its mild form, called gingivitis. At this stage, the gums are irritated and inflamed, but can be easily treated with a thorough dental cleaning and oral rinses as prescribed by your dentist.

What Causes Gum Disease?

In most cases, gum disease is caused by the development of sticky bacterial plaque on the surfaces of your teeth. Plaque is the result of poor oral hygiene, which allows bacteria to grow on your teeth and harden underneath the gum line as tartar. Plaque and tartar can irritate your gums, leading to gingivitis. If left untreated, a mild case of gum disease can advance into a severe infection.

When Should I See A Dentist?

Gingivitis can appear with mild symptoms, such as:

  • Swollen or puffy gums
  • Bright red, dark red or purple gums
  • Gums that feel tender to the touch
  • Gums that bleed easily when brushing and flossing
  • Blood on your toothbrush

Be sure to call your dentist as soon as possible if you notice any problems with your gums. We offer periodontal services to reverse the early signs of gum disease, treat your infection, and get your oral health back on track. Our services include:


A minor surgical procedure performed to remove damaged and diseased gum tissue and promote the growth of healthy gums.

Scaling and Root Planing

A deep cleaning that removes built-up plaque and tartar and prevents future infection.
