Periodontitis is a disease that inflames your gums and damages the supporting structures around your teeth. Bacteria caused by plaque can trigger inflammation, which often results in sore, red, tender gums that bleed easily. You can help prevent periodontitis by brushing regularly, which removes plaque buildup and clears your teeth of that nasty bacteria that becomes problematic for gum disease.
Periodontal treatment at our Brampton dental office encourages the removal of bacterial plaque with professional cleaning, antibiotics, and oral hygiene assessment and instruction. Ask your Brampton family dentists how you can take better care of your gums and teeth to prevent periodontitis!
