Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, is caused by an accumulation of plaque, germs, and food on the teeth that are not addressed early on. Gingivitis is the initial stage of gum disease and is treatable if detected early. If left untreated, it can lead to gum disease, an inflammation of the teeth's supporting structures. This is a more severe condition that, if left untreated, can lead to bone and teeth loss.

If your gums are red, swollen, or bleeding, you may have gum disease. It is normal to occur after eating anything that irritates your gums or brushing too forcefully. However, if this happens frequently, you may have gum disease. Bad breath, loose teeth, discomfort when biting, sensitive teeth, or teeth that look longer are some symptoms. If you reside in St. Catherines, we can check your gums and determine what is causing your condition.
