When it comes to gum disease, your dental health will perform better if we diagnose the condition sooner rather than later. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, occurs in different stages and can often be reversed in its initial stages. We invite you to learn more about the first stage of gum disease–gingivitis–and how our team may treat it.

If you develop gingivitis, your gums can become swollen as a result of the bacteria introduced to your smile by food debris that linger in your mouth after meals and are not cleared away with oral care. Signs of gingivitis include irritated gums that can bleed when you brush and floss, and could become harmed if touched.

Fortunately, our team at [practie_name] can help you reverse gingivitis with timely treatment. When you come visit, our team can treat your mouth to a professional dental cleaning that may involve a deep cleaning treatment for your gums. The expertise of our team combined with a new resolution to brush and floss your smile every day can quickly put you on the right path to recovering from gum disease and achieving a brighter smile.

We invite you to contact Davidson Cosmetic & Family Dentistry at 704.987.2277 today and schedule a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Michael B. Wilhite, if you experience any symptoms of gum disease in Davidson, North Carolina, and need a professional dental exam.
