Periodontal Disease can have significant effects on not only your oral, but systemic health! Today’s research has shown the connection between periodontal health and heart health. Gingivitis is an early form of Periodontitis, or gum disease. If you experience an occasional swelling of the gums, gums that bleed after brushing or flossing, itchy gums, bright red or purple gums, chances are you have Gingivitis. Gingivitis can be treated by having your teeth professionally cleaned, followed by a strict oral hygiene regimen, including anti-bacterial rinses. If the condition is left untreated, Gingivitis can escalate into Periodontitis. Periodontitis symptoms include those of Gingivitis, as well as, a metallic taste in the mouth, receding gums, enlarged spaces between the gums and teeth, severe halitosis (bad breath), and even loose teeth (from loss of bone).
