Periodontics

Many people don't know that gum disease may cause bone loss, loose or drifting teeth and to people's surprise, it has been associated with heart disease. Gum diseases can be treated in many different ways, depending on the severity of the disease. At Lakeview Dental Centre we provide you with the adequate oral care to keep your gums healthy all the time.

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. It is an infection or inflammation of the gums. One of its most common symptoms is bleeding gums.

Periodontitis is a more advanced disease of the gum tissues, which may include loss of the bone surrounding the roots of teeth. This could lead to the development of periodontal pockets, tooth mobility and, if left untreated, possibly even tooth loss.
