Cornell Dental Centre: Keeping Gum Disease Away from Your Life

Periodontal disease or gum disease is mainly caused by bacteria from plaque and tartar build up. Other factors that have the potential to cause Periodontal disease may include tobacco use, clenching or grinding your teeth, certain medications and genetics.

Symptoms of Gum Disease Your Markham Dentist Looks For:

Gums that bleed easily
Red, swollen, or tender gums
Gums that have pulled away from your teeth
Persistent bad breath
Loose or separating teeth
A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
A change in the fit of partial dentures

if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, please contact Dr. Weerasinghe immediately so that we can get you in for a scan.

This will help put you one step closer to the smile that you deserve!
