Development of gum diseaseBacteria feed on sugars in bits of food debris trapped between teeth and in plaque. As they eat, they excrete toxins that cause gum tissue to pull away from teeth.
Gum disease is measured by the attachment of gums to teeth. If four millimeters of gum tissue at the edges is not firmly sealed to teeth, you have gingivitis. The most noticeable symptom is bleeding gums. Gambrills patients can avoid more serious forms of gum disease by seeking treatment promptly.
Untreated, the condition progresses into periodontitis, creating pockets of five millimeters or greater. You cannot clean these pockets with brushing and flossing. You may experience chronic bad breath, tooth sensitivity, and decay. Teeth become loose, and eventually fall out or have to be extracted.

Treatment for healthy gumsYour first step toward healthy gums is scheduling a consultation. If you have gum disease, your Gambrills dentist will schedule scaling and root planing, which removes plaque and tartar from pockets and smooths tooth roots. It is vital to maintain frequent hygiene recalls, every three to four months.

~ Tiffany N. A+. I am a military spuse and decided to try Bingham-Lester, Awesome Choice. Price Range wasnt awesome, but the experiece was great. Very Clean and you even have a T.V. over your head (what a distraction) I keep my eyes closed. I had quite a few cavities (bad teeth) She uses the bite guard, but when I got up for my 2nd break she said "Is this bothering you" I told her Yes and we did not use it again. I almost fell asleep the TV noise in the background made it better (for whatver reason.) I would reccommend this Dentsist to anyone. Very Laid back and funny! I no longer hate the dentist....its almost relaxing, minus the whole mouth open part. Thats the dentist though!!
