Today my Gums are Healthy!
“When it came to my dental care routine, I was always very diligent. However, when I moved to California from out of state I took my time looking for a dentist. After a few years of not visiting a dentist I started to experience embarrassing, persistent bad breath and swollen gums. I never had anything like it before, so I immediately begin searching for a dentist. Hillview Dental Care in Ventura was the first one recommended to me and I am so thankful. I was able to get an appointment that day! During my appointment Dr. Meier diagnosed me with gingivitis. To treat the infection he created a detailed plan that began with a gentle, deep cleaning treatment from one of his skilled hygienists to remove plaque buildup and bacteria. Today my gums are healthy and I am so thrilled with the high quality of care I received! I encourage everyone I know to visit Dr. Meier and Hillview Dental Care in Ventura.”
Gum Disease: Knowing The Symptoms
Only a visit to your dentist can determine and diagnose whether or not you may be suffering from gingivitis or periodontal disease. Symptoms of gum disease can be virtually non-existent or extremely subtle. Subtle signs such as bleeding when flossing may not seem to be much of a concern especially when your gums are not swollen or sensitive. It is important to note that gum disease is often painless and the symptoms can be hard to recognize even in the late stages of this disease. If you are experiencing bleeding, gum pain, small bumps, irritation, or tooth sensitivity, then don’t wait. You can stop gum disease in its tracks but you need to call today!
