Gum Disease Therapy – Los Angeles / Beverly Hills / Bel Air

Periodontal disease is not only the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, it's also been linked to heart disease, low infant birth rate and a whole host of other potentially dangerous conditions.


What is Gum Disease?

Gum or periodontal disease (also known as periodontitis) is an inflammatory condition affecting the tissues surrounding a tooth, and is the leading cause of tooth loss. Gingivitis is a bacterial infection of the tissues in the mouth and potential precursor of gum disease.

Once gum disease sets in, the toxins produced by the bacteria damage the teeth?s connective tissue and bone, effectively destroying them and fostering tooth loss.


The Signs of Gum Disease

Since bone recession is not visible to the naked eye, and if left undetected, may contribute to tooth loss, it is important to visit Dr. Goodjohn for professional examinations and dental cleanings to identify gum disease.

Here are some common signs of gum disease you and your dentist can look for:

  • Bleeding gums during tooth brushing or otherwise
  • Sensitive, red or swollen gums
  • Bad breath
  • Teeth that are loose or appear to have shifted.
