Gum Disease

At Brooklyn Dental Centre we provide gum therapy treatments for patients experiencing symptoms of periodontal disease including swollen, bleeding or sore gums.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is also known as periodontal disease. It is a very common disease in many Canadians and can occur despite your best efforts to maintain your oral health. Depending on your level of gum disease, you may require treatment from a dental professional.

How do I know if I have gum disease?

Gum disease may be painless or have no symptoms at all. However, during your oral health examination the team at Brooklyn Dental Centre will check for signs of gum disease, and recommend gum therapy if necessary.

What are symptoms of gum disease?

Gum disease may have no symptoms at all. It also may cause the following discomforts in your smile:

  • Receding gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Sore gums
  • Red or purple gums
  • Swollen gums
  • Recurring bad breath

How do I treat my gum disease?

If you are experiencing receding, bleeding or sore gums we recommend that you visit your dentist today. We will provide gum therapy which involves scaling and root planing for your teeth. These techniques used by your dental health team are here to help you manage and prevent gum disease from spreading.
