Tricia
I literally had the best dental experience in my life! I felt no pain whatsoever with the filling I had to get last week in Dr. Pruce's office. Also, Dr. Pruce and everyone I've interacted with in the office are so kind and really personable.

What is periodontal disease and how can I prevent getting it?

What is periodontal disease and how can I prevent getting it?

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a bacterial infection that attacks the gums, bone, and supporting structures of a tooth. Without treatment, gum disease progresses and, in the advanced stage, may ultimately lead to tooth loss.

During the day, a sticky coating develops on your teeth. This film is called plaque, and it collects bacteria that linger on your dental enamel. If these bacteria are not removed properly with brushing and flossing, they cause inflamed, tender, or swollen gums.

Gum diseases range from a simple inflammation of the gums, which is called gingivitis, to a severe infection, called periodontitis. In this advanced stage, gum disease causes significant damage to the gums and bone that support your teeth. Without prompt and proper treatment, teeth may be lost.

The best way to avoid getting gum disease is with diligent oral hygiene and routine visits to our Washington, PA dental office for cleanings and exams. If you are keeping your teeth really clean and seeing us regularly, there’s very little chance that you will develop gum disease.

Whether it’s time for your next exam or you just want to be sure your teeth are as healthy as they can be, please call us. We will be happy to talk to you about the steps we can take to help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile
