Periodontitis: Your Gums' Worst Enemy

Healthy gums are very important for healthy teeth.


Any inflammation of your gums or your periodonal apparatus (periodontitis)  can damage your bite and even cause you to lose teeth. To prevent this from happening, we take steps to stop the process, thus restoring your dental health for the long haul.

If you have any of the following symptoms, contact Dr. Carcamo immediately to schedule an appointment, these are signs of periodontal disease.

  • gums that bleed easily
  • red, swollen or tender gums
  • gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • pus between the teeth and gums when the gums are pressed
  • persistent bad breath or bad taste
  • permanent teeth that are loose or separating
  • any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
  • any change in the fit of partial dentures 

The doctor has seen extremely advanced cases of periodontal disease such as the one below. Do not let your periodontitis progress to this level.  Schedule an appointment today: save your teeth and have a beautiful smile.
