What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal Disease Multiple areas of receding gums exposing root surfacesPeriodontal disease occurs when plaque bacteria sits below the gum line causing decay in, and around, the roots of teeth. This bacteria, over time, will produce toxins that cause the gums to pull away from the teeth. To aid in the prevention of periodontal disease, work with an experienced dental team, such as the Mississauga Periodontal Associates. This respected team of experts, will provide an assessment of your oral health, and a customized long term plan for future care.

Know the Symptoms of Periodontal Disease:

Are you experiencing swollen, red or bleeding gums? Do you have pain while chewing, loose teeth or lingering bad breath? If you answered yes to any of these questions you may be in the beginning stages of periodontal disease. With early detection, the Periodontal Associates will be able to work with you, to set up effective treatment plans.

Take Preventative Measures of Periodontal Disease:

Daily brushing and flossing is imperative to ensuring excellent oral health. The Mississauga Periodontal Associates will aid in developing the proper oral hygiene habits to prevent the onset of periodontal disease. The damage from periodontal disease can stretch beyond the gums affecting your body, and organs. Without proper treatment, the damaging bacteria can enter the blood stream, through inflamed gums, causing additional health issues. Following preventative measures will not only have a positive impact on your oral health, but your overall health as well.

Dear our Periodontal Associates Patients,

We are writing you to inform you of our operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. On March 15th, 2020 our provincial regulator, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, provided that all dentists and dental specialists were to suspend routine services due to the ongoing crisis.

The health and safety of our patients and our team is our top priority. This extends to the broader community and our duty to limit in-person contact to flatten the curve. Effective immediately, with the EXCEPTION OF EMERGENCY CARE, our office will be closed until further notice.

For patients who have received recent procedures, the after hours emergency service will remain available to you should you need to reach us.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and keep you informed. We are available remotely and can be reached at 905.279.3364. Your messages will be answered. Thank you for your understanding and support.

The Periodontal Associates Team
