Gum Disease & Gingivitis Treatment In Rock Hill
Gums are exposed to bacteria and various acids present in the mouth at all times. This exposure may cause gums to become inflamed, leading to gingivitis. In addition, if left untreated, the condition can result in periodontal (gum) bone loss.
Over time, gum disease can extend into tooth structures, causing tooth decay or periodontal disease with its consequent gum recession, leading to lost teeth and an increased risk of tooth extraction. Some of the symptoms of gingivitis include red or swollen gums, bad breath [halitosis], bleeding from the gums, and a foul taste in the mouth. Here at River District Smiles Dentistry, we offer gingivitis treatment in Rock Hill and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to provide the highest quality dental care in Rock Hill for everything from preventive dentistry to the most complicated dental issues.
