If your oral hygiene routine hasn’t been thorough, consistent, or (worse) existent you’re putting yourself at risk of developing gum disease. Gingivitis is just the first stage, a reversible one at that. However, once it moves on to the second stage—Periodontitis—aggressive treatment is necessary. No need to worry, though. For Pomona periodontist
treatment, feel free to reach out to Jonathan Tiger DMD.
So what exactly are the differences between gingivitis and periodontitis? The former displays relatively mild signs—primarily redness and inflammation of the gums. Pain is relatively non-existent which is largely why most people don’t treat it with urgency—earning it the name the “silent killer”. Periodontitis, on the other hand, is far more noticeable. At this stage, the gums are susceptible to bleeding upon soft contact. Gums recede into grooves or pockets, providing fertile ground for bacteria to flourish and continue attacking both the guns and bone. Once bone loss takes place, teeth are in peril of shifting and, eventually, falling out. Sure, this sounds like very scary stuff to read about. Pad the sweat off your brow and take a deep breath—it’s going to be ok. All you have to do is find top-quality Pomona periodontist treatment. Fortunately, we have the perfect professional for you. Jonathan Tiger DMD provides a variety of intensive periodontal services that’ll help keep the disease under control.
Even if your gum disease has taken hold of your mouth, you can still combat it and protect your smile from long-term damage. Don’t forget. After treatment, it is imperative to establish a thorough, consistent oral hygiene routine to minimize tartar buildup between visits. So what are you waiting for? Don’t shy away from an opportunity to take control of your situation. Go ahead and reach out to Jonathan Tiger DMD for Pomona periodontist
