Gum Disease Treatment in
Wauwatosa

Gums are the tissue that surrounds and supports your teeth. Gum disease occurs when this tissue becomes infected. This condition is one of the leading causes of tooth loss. Plaque is the primary cause of gum disease, which is also known as periodontal disease. Plaque (the bacteria on teeth) is constantly forming, so regular dental care is important to preventing buildup that affects the gums.

Gum Disease Treatment in Wauwatosa

If you experience bleeding or swollen gums, gums that are pulling away from your teeth, bad breath or taste, loose or changing teeth, you may have signs of gum disease. If you don’t take proper care of your teeth, smoke or chew tobacco, are pregnant, have diabetes, have crooked teeth, or take certain medications, you may have an increased risk of gum disease. Regular dental exams are important for identifying any symptoms that may develop into a problem.

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. Gingivitis can be eliminated by a thorough dental and proper dental care following the cleaning. If gingivitis is not reversed, it develops into periodontitis, which is advanced gum disease. Almost half of adults over 30 are affected by chronic periodontitis, which can lead to irreversible loss of the tissue and bone that supports your teeth.

While periodontal disease can develop slowly, if you observe rapid loss of tissue or bone, you may have aggressive periodontitis. Consult a dentist immediately if you notice drastic changes in your mouth. However, there are not always warning signs for gum disease, which is why professional consultations and exams are so important.

Dental Arts is the absolute best! Dr. Mike helped me with an emergency tooth situation, right before I was leaving for a weekend away. He stayed late, and ensured it was perfectly done. If you want excellent teeth and amazing customer service, this is the place to go!

I had a very good experience today. I am very afraid when it comes to dentist and pain. I felt do pain whatsoever. I would recommend Dental Arts to anyone. Most of my family comes here also. All I can say is Great Job!!!
