Are Bleeding Gums Serious? What Is Periodontitis?
Bleeding gums could be a sign of a serious condition called periodontitis. Periodontitis is a gum infection that damages the soft tissue and destroys the bone that supports your teeth. Dr. Carter can both diagnose and treat this serious condition. Call Gulfside Periodontics if you have bleeding gums or concerns about your oral health.
What will happen at my first visit?
A thorough 90-minute examination will be performed to check your gums for bleeding, swelling, firmness, recession, or other signs of infection. There will also be a stable bite analysis, along with measurements for bone loss or loose teeth. X-rays may be taken and your problem and treatment will be thoroughly explained to you. You may be referred to our treatment planning coordinator for treatment cost estimates and payment options.
