Gingivitis Dentist

It’s not a pretty picture. According to the American Dental Association, three-quarters of all adults will be affected by some form of gum disease. In the Ellicott City area, you can turn to Dr. Teresa Adams of Soft Touch Dental Care as your resource in the prevention and treatment of gum disease.

Gum disease, technically referred to as “periodontal disease,” is a bacterial infection in the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. There are several stages and categories. The first stage is called “gingivitis” and is characterized by gum tissue that is red, puffy, and bleeds easily during brushing and flossing.

The next several categories include advancing stages of periodontal disease. In these stages, the infection can destroy the bone supporting the teeth, eventually causing tooth loss. But when you visit Soft Touch Dental Care regularly, we can help you avoid gum disease and its destructive results. And if you’re diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. Adams and his experienced team can affectively treat the disease, using the latest technologies to return your mouth to health.
