Gum Disease And Tooth Loss

Categories: Gum Disease

Do you know that the most common cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? The good news is that gum disease is easy to treat if it’s detected in the early stages. At Black & Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, your premier Lansdale, PA area dentist office, we offer periodontal treatment for gum disease. 

Regular check-ups with your dentist are important, but there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for.

  1. Gums that bleed often
  2. Gums that are tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  3. A bite that changes suddenly so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly
  4. Detached gums
  5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
  6. Loose or separating teeth

If you are experiencing these symptoms, call us for an appointment today. Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing and dental cleanings is the key to healthy gums.

Contact our office and a member of our calm and comfortable staff can make an appointment for you. During your consultation, you can talk with Dr. Kevin Bass and Dr. Lawrence Black about swollen gums, veneers, cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, and more. We can address all of your dental issues at Black and Bass Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale. Services include restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.
