Periodontal FAQ

Questions relating to Periodontal Disease:

1. What is periodontal disease?

2. What are the symptoms of periodontal disease?

3. Why, all of a sudden, is my dentist sending me to a periodontist?

Periodontists have advanced training in the treatment of periodontal disease and the placement of dental implants.

Patients with periodontal infection have a lowered resistance to periodontal bacteria. This causes a continuing gum infection that can grow in bursts of activity. Some factors that can cause a dramatic increase in the severity of your periodontal disease are:

  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Dental plaque
  • Smoking
  • Genetic factors
  • Stress
  • Diet
  • Age
  • Illness

Two other important factors are:

  • Lack of regular dental checkups.
  • Lack of regular dental cleanings.

When your infection has a "burst" of growth, or when there are signs that this is may occur, your dentist may recommend periodontal treatment. 

4. How is periodontal infection treated?

5. Does periodontal treatment hurt?

6. Why must I start treatment right away?
