Have you ever experienced bleeding gums, sore or puffy gums, sensitive teeth, or chronic bad breath? They’re symptoms that arise in the early stages of periodontal disease — sometimes known as gum disease — which is a chronic bacterial infection that affects your gum and bone.
If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to loose teeth, or even cause your teeth to fall out.
At Kennedy Dental Office in Scarborough, Ontario, we provide comprehensive periodontics care for our patients. We also encourage you to help prevent periodontal disease by brushing and flossing daily, and by visiting us regularly for thorough deep cleanings and check-ups.
