Dr. John Lu, Dr. Raul Figueroa, and Dr. Kevin Murawski examine your teeth during regular exams, and one of the main conditions they look for is periodontal disease. While you should never ignore signs of periodontal disease, the condition often sets in without causing any symptoms initially. In many cases, symptoms indicate that the disease has progressed to a late stage. Treating periodontal disease in Lawrenceville, NJ, is possible at Lawrenceville Dental Implant Center and Periodontics.

Look out for these periodontal disease signs

As soon as you can tell something's wrong with your gums, you should schedule an appointment for periodontal disease in Lawrenceville, NJ. Untamed periodontal disease can do a lot of damage to your soft and hard oral tissues. Therefore, it's important to immediately report these signs and symptoms to your dentist:

  • Pain while chewing
  • Loose permanent teeth
  • Bad breath that doesn't get better with brushing
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Gum recession
  • Bright red gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Gums that bleed easily, like while brushing or flossing

Diagnosing a periodontal disease is simple with an examination from your dentist. Even if you don't notice symptoms like these or don't think anything of them, your dentist can see signs that you might not immediately identify. This is why the Center for Disease Control recommends visiting your dentist at least once a year for an exam.

What happens if you ignore signs of periodontal disease?

Managing your periodontal disease is vital for your oral health and your overall systemic health since infections tend to spread if you don't treat them. Without treatment, periodontal disease can get worse to the point of:

  • Tooth loss
  • Recurrent abscesses
  • Jawbone damage
  • Permanent holes in your gums

These issues are very costly to treat, especially when you consider that treatment for the early stages of gum disease can be as simple as improving your oral hygiene routine. Your dentist tells you how serious your periodontal disease is and what you'll need to do to get it under control.

Treating periodontal disease in Lawrenceville, NJ, is as simple as booking a visit at Lawrenceville Dental Implant Center and Periodontics. To see Dr. John Lu, Dr. Raul Figueroa, and Dr. Kevin Murawski for signs of gum disease, call the office at (609) 896-0700.
