At West Calgary Periodontics we offer Periodontal Disease Therapy. It is important to know that Gum Disease (also known as ‘Periodontitis’) takes many forms and presents with different levels of severity. If left untreated, periodontitis can eventually lead to tooth loss and other potential health problems.
Gingivitis is the most common form of periodontal disease and can cause your gums to become red and swollen. They may also tend to bleed easily. Gingivitis is usually caused by inadequate oral health
The advanced form of gingivitis is called Periodontitis. When gingivitis is left untreated the plaque can spread below the gum line. If left untreated, the end result is that the tissues supporting the bone can be broken down and destroyed.
