Some of the symptoms of gum disease can include gums that are tender, swollen or bleeding. You may also experience loose or lost teeth or receding gums. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should contact our dentist, Dr. Brian Han, for an examination for gum disease treatment in Fircrest, Washington.
In its earliest stages, gum disease is called gingivitis. If it is left untreated, it can lead to a more serious condition known as periodontitis, which can cause problems not only for your oral health but for other parts of your body as well. The severity of your gum disease will determine the type of treatment Dr. Han will recommend. In some cases, changes to your personal habits and oral health care routine may remedy the situation. If your gum disease is more advanced, you may require a deep cleaning, antibiotics or surgery.
