Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a degenerative oral condition that destroys your gum and the supporting bone structure of your teeth. Dr. Aaron T. Ward and our team are dedicated to helping you fight gum disease and maintain good oral health. If you notice any symptoms of gum disease, including red or swollen gums, gums that bleed easily, gum recession, or loose teeth, you should seek periodontal care as soon as possible. Your general dentist or a hygienist may also recommend periodontal treatment if they find signs of gum disease during your dental checkup.
