When to see a periodontist?

When to see a periodontist - Newmarket dentists by Woo Dental

Untreated, periodontal disease can lead to severe health complications. The sooner you see a periodontist, the better, as it will prevent the problem from worsening. If you observe the following signs, you need to schedule an appointment with your dentist in Newmarket to help you.

1. Change in your bite

Consider seeing a periodontist if you have difficulty chewing or talking. The inflammation in the gums causes the formation of pockets which will affect your chewing. A change in your bite patterns means something is wrong and can signify severe dental problems.

2. Red or swollen bleeding gums

Red or swollen gums are one of the most apparent signs that you need a periodontist. The inflammation can cause the gums to bleed, most especially when you brush or eat. You will notice that your gums become tender when you spit out blood when you brush. 

3. Loose teeth

Your loose teeth can be a sign of bone and severe infection. Gum disease has advanced to this stage. You should contact your periodontist as soon as possible if any of the teeth become loose.

4. Receding gums

There is no guarantee that receding gums are the result of gum disease. Sometimes this can happen when you brush your teeth too hard, which makes your gum tissue injured. The periodontist can help fix your problem, so you don’t have to worry about dental problems in the future.

5. Pain and discomfort

The cause of oral pain is usually associated with a specific tooth. However, if you notice discomfort in your gums, you need to schedule a visit with your periodontist to assess the root of your problem.
