If your gums are sore, swollen or easily bleed, you may be suffering from a periodontal disorder. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a common condition that affects many different people.

With periodontics, our dentists can diagnose, treat and prevent gum disease and other issues that affect the mouth. Different stages of gum disease, as they develop, can spread to different parts of the mouth. Gum disease is the most common periodontal problem and starts when bacteria and plaque start to build up on the teeth. This is called gingivitis. As the buildup continues, it can lead to gum recession and periodontitis, the second stage of gum disease. This is the stage, that if not treated, can lead to tooth and bone loss. It is important to start treating the signs of gum disease before they reach this point.
With early treatment, Clear Dental can easily reverse the effects of gum disease and prevent it from spreading further. Plan a periodontal treatment in Anchorage, Alaska, today by calling (907) 313-2433.
