3 Signs You Need to See a Periodontist?

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Todd Jorgenson
3 Signs You Need to See a Periodontist?You should visit a dentist twice a year for routine teeth cleanings and examinations. However, you must maintain good oral hygiene at home since this will prevent the formation of plaque and tartar. If you have the following signs, make sure you see a periodontist:

Swollen, Red, and Bleeding Gums


Healthy gums are pink. Never let them swell up or bleed, particularly after brushing or flossing your teeth. You might have periodontal disease if you are experiencing either of these symptoms, and you must visit a periodontist. Patients with the periodontal disease require more care than regular brushing, flossing, and tooth cleanings. Scaling and root planing is a specialist deep cleaning procedure that involves cleaning the roots of your teeth to get rid of the bacteria that is hiding behind your gums.

Receding Gums


Another indication that you should visit a periodontist is if your gums are receding or have large pockets between your teeth, possibly filled with pus. In this case, you should schedule an appointment with a periodontist immediately. Receding gums are signs of severe periodontal disease, which destroys jawbone tissue and causes tooth loss.

You may require a gum graft along with scaling and root planing. This oral procedure involves taking tiny pieces of tissue from your mouth's roof and placing them over your exposed roots so the donor tissue can develop with the rest of your gum tissue.

Chronic Bad Breath


You might not think foul breath to be an indication of illness. However, persistent bad breath that doesn't improve with regular oral hygiene may be a sign of periodontal disease. Besides, if you have periodontal disease, your teeth may become sensitive to hot or cold drinks and food due to eroding enamel. All these symptoms require periodontist treatment to prevent them from worsening.
