Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria that attacks the tissue surrounding your teeth. These signs are hard to notice at first, so it is encouraged to get regular screenings done by a professional. At Redwood Dental, our dentists are skilled in diagnosing and treating gum disease in its earliest stages.

Signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Redness or swelling in the gums
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose or sensitive teeth
  • Abscess
