Beautiful Teeth and Healthy Gums

Improve your smile

Are you thinking about whitening, straightening, or improving the appearance of your teeth? It’s important to make sure your gums are in great shape first.

You may think that your gums are healthy, but most people will at some point have a level of gum disease, even if they are not aware of it.

If you experience any of the following, you are more susceptible to gum disease:
> Hormonal changes (e.g. menopause)
> Diabetes
> Smoking
> Poor oral hygiene
> Genetic susceptibility
> Medications resulting in dry mouth

Gum disease usually develops slowly and without pain, so you may not notice anything until it is serious and you are in danger of losing teeth.

Some signs of gum disease include:
> Sensitive teeth when you chew
> Red, swollen or tender gums
> Bleeding gums
> Persistent bad breath
> Teeth appearing “longer”
> Loose teeth

If you experience any of the above signs, contact our office. In many cases, our dental team can reverse the signs of gum disease, especially if caught early.

If you have any questions about the health of your teeth and gums, please contact our office at (514) 364-3366 or click here to visit our website. Also, be sure to visit our Facebook page to keep up with information that affect your dental health and wellness.
