Gum disease is the #1 reason that adults in the US lose their teeth. It causes tissue detachment and irreversible bone loss that isn’t as easy to spot as a cavity.
Symptoms typically include signs of:
- Bad breath
- Bad taste in the mouth
- “Long” teeth (gum recession)
- Food packing between the teeth
- Gums that are swollen, red, or bleed
- Loose teeth
We will screen for gum disease during all new patient preventive appointments to ensure that it does not go undiagnosed.
Deep Cleanings Combat Gum Disease
Our deep cleanings can eliminate the bacteria under your gum pockets that cause gum disease. This gives you a chance to eliminate the infection through rigorous oral hygiene and follow up care, preventing tooth loss.
Sleep Dentistry of Spokane can complete your full mouth deep cleaning under anesthesia, along with any other types of treatment like fillings, extractions and veneers.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or need to be seen for your general check up, call Sleep Dentistry of Spokane before it is too late. We’ll do everything we can to help save your smile.
