Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is often referred to as a “silent disease,” as many people with gum disease do not realize they have it. It is important to become familiar with the symptoms of gum disease and to tell Dr. Bina when you see him that you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Bad breath
- Tooth sensitivity or pain when chewing
- Gum recession
- Red or irritated gums
- Bleeding when you brush
It is also important to maintain a thorough, effective hygiene routine to prevent gum disease in the future. To learn more about gum disease in Encino, California, or to schedule an appointment with our dentist, call Encino Cosmetic & Dental Implants at 818-907-1818.
