Nearly every area of a human body is susceptible to infections, and the mouth isn’t an exception. Infected gums can be very painful and could be a symptom of other more serious health issues such as periodontal disease. This condition affects the area below the gum line known as the sulcus. If not treated on time, this infection causes extensive damage to the attachment of your tooth and eventual break down of the nearby tissue.

At Pine Valley Dentistry, we understand that gums offer fundamental support to your teeth. Our dentists have a wealth of knowledge and access to highly effective dental exam equipment. They can offer accurate diagnosis and effective treatment to restore the health and overall functionality of your gums.

Gum infections are characterized by gum inflammation that affects the tissue surrounding jaw bone tissue. Unlike gingivitis, a common health issue that affects the gums only, periodontitis can cause extensive damage to your jaw bone and eventual tooth loss. The moment you realize that you have gum-related issues, schedule an appointment with any of our dentists.

Do I Need Gum Disease Treatment?

First, you need to know the common signs of gum disease. These include:

  • Bleeding gums  
  • Loose teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums that are getting worse
  • Metallic or a bad taste in your mouth
  • Pus from the gums
  • Tender, swollen, and red gums


Keep in mind that some of these issues might be a sign of a different dental problem. Therefore, it’s important to consult with the certified dentists at Pine Valley Dentistry for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

It is unfortunate that many people don’t realize they have gum disease until the infection has advanced, and their overall dental health has deteriorated. To be on the safer side, it is recommended to schedule regular dental checkups. During these sessions, our dentists can identify the earliest signs of gum disease and address the issue long before it becomes a big issue.

Oral Hygiene Tips to Prevent Gum Disease

Periodontitis is a complicated and multifactorial infection. Different factors will impact whether you are susceptible to this infection. Some of these factors include genetics, dental hygiene, smoking habits, the bacteria profile of your mouth, hormonal changes, and your susceptibility to autoimmune infections.

With a proper treatment approach, you can successfully stop gum disease in its tracks and prevent bone loss. Keep in mind that once your jawbone is lost, you can never recover it. So, it is in your best interest to prevent gum disease.

There are important steps that you can take to minimize the symptoms of gum disease and prevent this condition from advancing further. For example, routine oral hygiene practices such as brushing and flossing your teeth daily can go a long way in preventing gum disease. This is because every time you brush or floss your teeth, you minimize tartar and plaque buildup in your gums and teeth. It is also recommended to use mouthwash to reduce the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
