Periodontics

Regular periodontal care at Jane Street Dental helps you maintain healthy gums.

Periodontics is the part of dentistry that deals with the gums and bone surrounding your teeth. It’s essential that your teeth have a solid foundation of healthy gums and strong bone.

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting your teeth.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease:
  • Swollen, puffy and bleeding gums
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth

If not adequately treated, periodontal disease can result in loose teeth and ultimately tooth loss. Early detection and treatment are the key to successful treatment.

Preventing Periodontal Disease:
  • Brush and floss your teeth daily
  • See your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and monitoring
  • If diagnosed with periodontal disease, get treatment early

Healthy Gums

Gum disease ranges from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that can cause major damage to the soft tissue and bone
