While many patients have heard of periodontal disease, they may not truly understand the importance in avoiding its development. Periodontal disease, also referred to as gum disease, is a serious condition that can affect all aspects of the smile including the jaw bone, gum tissue, and natural teeth.

Periodontal disease starts off as gingivitis, the initial stage of gum disease which is characterized by issues such as persistent bad breath, inflammation of the gum tissue, and bleeding of the gums while brushing or flossing. At this point, the condition is completely reversible with immediate dental care. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. can provide a thorough cleaning of the teeth and gum tissue to remove the bacteria causing the condition.

Without treatment, patients may experience further problems and the progression of the disease into periodontitis. At this point, patients may notice the shrinking of gum tissue as it pulls away from the natural teeth. Bone underneath disintegrates and results in the loosening of teeth, eventually causing them to fall out due to poor support. Patients may experience other problems such as tooth decay and pain at this point. Instead of reversing the condition, patients can only control it when it reaches this stage with the assistance of a quality dental team. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental can help patients understand the stage of which their disease is at and how to address it.
