Up to70%

of adults over the age of 65 have periodontal disease

Gingivitis and its progression to periodontitis has negative effects on the entire human body. As an inflammatory disease, it is entirely preventable, but once it reaches a certain threshold, can cause irreversible damage. Inflammation of the gums and eventually the bone contributes to the body’s overall inflammatory burden and worsens other conditions. Often, no pain is present and timely intervention by your dentist will catch this silent disease before it worsens. 

Signs of gingivitis include:

  • bleeding of the gums either during brushing, flossing, or eating
  • redness and puffiness of the gums with a swollen appearance
  • bad breath due to bacteria
