Healthy gums are the foundation for a beautiful smile and better oral health. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and the team at Brentwood Family Dental work closely with patients to help them achieve the smile they’ve always wanted, and enjoy it for a lifetime! Brentwood, CA area patients who are interested in learning about conditions that can affect their dental health, such as gum disease, are encouraged to visit the practice.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is one of many conditions that can negatively impact the smile. Gum disease, which dentists often refer to as periodontal disease, is a condition that can greatly damage the gum tissues as well as the teeth and bone. It begins as gingivitis, the earliest stage. Gingivitis is characterized by symptoms such as:
  • Persistent halitosis (bad breath)
  • Bleeding when flossing
  • Bleeding when brushing
  • Red and swollen gums
  • Presence of bacteria on the gum tissue

When patients notice the symptoms above, they need to act fast to reverse the condition. Otherwise, it can progress into periodontal disease, which can ruin the smile quickly. Gum disease itself is known for causing bone loss, tooth loss, and shrinking gum tissues. It affects more than just the gums. Once it has developed to the later stages of periodontal disease, it cannot be cured—it can only be treated and maintained, meaning patients will have a lifelong struggle with the condition due to poor oral health care. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits are vital to oral health and wellness—for life!
