Our skilled dentists at Findlay Dental Arts provide periodontal treatment to help you treat and prevent periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is a degenerative condition caused by toxins in plaque, which builds up on the teeth. Common symptoms of periodontal disease include:

  • Swollen gums
  • Red, tender gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Receding gums or teeth that appear longer than usual
  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Painful chewing

If you suffer from any of these symptoms, you may have periodontal disease. Periodontal treatment may include scaling and root planing, which are deep cleaning methods that can remove bacteria and infected tissue and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. If you believe you may suffer from periodontal disease, we encourage you to call or visit our dental office in San Francisco, California today.
