Periodontal Therapy in Sainte-Catherine

Periodontal disease results from infections in the soft gum tissues and bone that support and surround teeth. Commonly known as gum disease, the condition must be treated early to prevent long-term complications that could compromise your dental health.

If you’re in Sainte-Catherine, Saint-Constant, Delson, Candiac, or any of the nearby areas on the South Shore, you can visit Clinique Dentaire PG. We provide periodontal therapy so you can have healthy gums that are free of pain, inflammation, and disease.

Periodontitis and Your Dental Health

Periodontitis is a serious form of gum disease. Left untreated, it can damage the soft tissue around teeth, as well as the bone below. In advanced stages, periodontitis can loosen teeth and eventually causes tooth loss.

The condition is common although it is preventable and very treatable. Periodontal therapy at Clinique Dentaire PG will be designed around your unique case to treat the infection and minimize any damage.

In most cases, periodontitis is caused by inadequate oral hygiene. Even if you brush and floss daily, a poor technique could cause bacteria to multiply and lead to infection. The best prevention is to brush your teeth twice daily, floss daily, and visit Clinique Dentaire PG for regular dental checkups.

Signs That You Need Periodontal Therapy

Bacteria will always be present in your mouth, even when you follow the best dental hygiene routine. Gum disease develops when there are unusually high concentrations of bacteria around teeth and gums. Regular cleaning with a General Dentist or periodontist in Sainte-Catherine can limit the development of tartar, reducing the risk of periodontitis. Normal brushing can’t remove tartar.

You may have even noticed some of the symptoms of gum disease. The signs of periodontitis include…

  • Persistent bad breath.
  • Inflamed, red, and tender gums.
  • Bleeding gums.
  • Pain when chewing and biting.
  • Teeth that are sensitive to hot and cold foods.
  • Loose teeth.
  • Receding gums (your teeth may start to appear longer and larger).

If you notice any of the symptoms and warning signs, it’s time to visit a General Dentist or periodontist in Sainte-Catherine.
