Gum Disease, Gingivitis

Dentist Snoqualmie, WA

Complete oral health doesn’t just involve your pearly whites; your gums are vital to the integrity of your teeth. A healthy smile cannot be accomplished without healthy gums. Preventing gum disease or gingivitis can be accomplished with routine dental care. But if gum disease does develop, your team at Better Way Dental can treat it. Additionally, we offer periodontal disease treatment for more severe cases. Our office serves the North Bend, Snoqualmie, and Tokul communities.

Gingivitis Symptoms

  • Tender Gums
  • Halitosis
  • Puffy gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Loose teeth

Gingivitis or gum disease is the infection of the soft tissue that sustains and supports your teeth. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to tooth loss. Gum disease also impacts the oxygen and nutrients provided to your teeth. Luckily, once identified our dental professionals can act with urgency and treat the infection. A deep cleaning will be necessary to remove the pesky bacteria causing gingivitis. If the infection has progressed into periodontal disease, a more aggressive cleaning will be required. Our Better Way Dental professionals will eradicate all the tartar buildup.

Periodontal Disease

Untreated gum disease develops into periodontal disease. Gums begin to pull away from your teeth and bone structure can be lost as a result of periodontal disease. Treating this progression of gingivitis is vital because it can lead to severe tooth loss. The professionals at Better Way Dental can effectively treat periodontal disease before it turns into a major issue.

Periodontal Disease Symptoms

  • Gum recession 
  • Swollen gums 
  • Bleeding gums 
  • Tooth loss 
  • Tooth alignment issues 

Routine dental cleanings and checkups combined with at-home oral care can prevent gingivitis. If you or a family member are suffering from gum disease symptoms, the professionals at Better Way Dental can provide specialized care. Contact us if you are located in the Snoqualmie, WA area.
