periodontal disease

What are the symptoms of periodontal disease? Are you affected? Have you identified the need of being treated.

Some of the symptoms of periodontal disease are best described in the advertisement for corsodyl.  A woman is in front of the mirror applying make up and notices her eye is bleeding,  the big question is would you ignore this.

– one of the main symptoms is bleeding gums.  Do your gums bleed while brushing or flossing, or even when you eat?

– do you suffer from sensitivity?  Have your gums receded?

– are your teeth mobile?

– do your gums ever feel swollen or uncomfortable?

-do you suffer from bad breath?

if you have noticed any of these symptoms you might have either early or advanced stages of periodontal disease.  It is vital to treat it in the early stages to prevent tooth loss.  In the American Journal of Periodontology as well as through out the rest of Europe periodontal disease is linked to heart disease, alzheimer’s, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.   At the Ella Clinic we tackle the periodontal problems in the early stages, we use the latest technology as well as nutritional support in terms of a holistic approach.  Laser have been very useful as adjunct treatment and are offering a treatment plan which makes it very comfortable and offers high success rates.
