Periodontics in Ottawa
Periodontal treatment specializes in the supporting structures of your teeth, like the bones and gums. During a check-up, we will screen for signs of periodontitis, or gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can destroy the bone supporting your teeth, so it’s important to have regular periodontal examinations and receive treatment for periodontal diseases right away.

Symptoms of Gum Disease
Gum disease is a common cause of tooth loss. Unfortunately, many people never realize that there’s a problem until the condition is fairly advanced. Symptoms of gum disease include bad breath, swollen or sensitive gums, bleeding gums after brushing or flossing, and a receding gum line. If you’re experiencing symptoms of gingivitis or periodontal disease, call the professionals at Billings Bridge Dental Centre right away to schedule a consultation.
