Etobicoke Periodontics

Dr. Maria Ana Marcelo is committed to preventing and treating gum disease

Gums and Teeth

Periodontics is the part of dentistry that takes care of the gums and bone that surround your teeth — ensuring a healthy mouth. Having a solid foundation of healthy gums and bone is very important.

If you’re concerned about gum disease, consider this: operiodontal disease – commonly referred to as gum disease – is a chronic bacterial infection that affects your gums and the bone supporting your teeth. It’s more common than you think, and you may not even realize you have it.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease:

  • Gums that bleed, or are swollen and puffy
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth

If periodontal disease isn’t treated correctly, it can leave loose teeth and eventually tooth loss. Successful treatment begins with early detection at our practice.

Preventing Periodontal Disease:

  • Brush and floss teeth daily
  • Visit your dentist regularly
  • If you have periodontal disease, have it treated as early as possible
