When Should You See a Periodontist?

Posted on 11/22/2021 by David Mugford
When Should You See a Periodontist?Periodontists are professionals that help fix a wide range of oral conditions. We specialize in treating a host of oral defects that affect your smile. Some several signs and symptoms show you need to come in for checks and possible treatment. If you exhibit any of the following symptoms, you have scheduled an appointment with us immediately.

Bleeding Gums

If you notice unexplained bleeding when brushing or eating, it could be a sign of periodontal infection. This condition is hazardous and can advance to severe stages if left untreated. Therefore, you should come in for immediate treatment if you notice any unexplained bleeding. This bleeding often occurs around the gum tissues and tooth root. Even though it doesn't cause any pain, unexplained bleeding is a sign of an underlying condition.

Gum Recession and Loose Teeth

When your teeth appear longer and more extensive than usual, it is a sign of gum recession. Receding gums is a warning sign of periodontal disease. It would help if you treated this condition as soon as possible because it can progress and attack the jawbone. When that happens, your teeth will become loose and unable to perform essential duties. Therefore, you should come in for treatment immediately you notice receding gums and loose teeth.

Bad Breath

It is normal to wake up with a bad breath in the morning. However, continued lousy breath (halitosis) that persists even when you brush and floss your teeth could be a sign of gingivitis or periodontal disease. If you notice a persistent bad breath from your mouth, it is time to see us. Our experts will examine the cause of the problem and administer effective treatment. This will go a long way in keeping your mouth healthy. Contact our offices for more information on the signs you need to see a periodontist.
