There are two types of gum disease, gingivitis and periodontitis. Untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis which could advance to teeth loss and other severe health problems. Rancho Dental wants to help you and your family avoid both types of gum disease. We wanted to first inform you what these types of gum diseases are.

Gingivitis is the mildest form of gum disease. Usually the symptoms are red, swollen, bleeding gums. The discomfort level is either low or none at all. The cause of this type of gum disease is due to a lack of proper oral hygiene. The way to treat gingivitis is with professional oral care and proper daily oral care at home. Rancho Dental has the greatest specialists to help members of our clients family’s avoid gingivitis and cure this type of gum disease. 

  If gingivitis does not get treated properly or on time, this type go gum disease will advance to periodontitis. The plaque that builds up on teeth can progress into growing under the gum line. This causes toxins and bacteria to stimulate and unfortunately lead into a chronic inflammatory response. This basically means the body will turn on itself. The bones and tissue that support the teeth will start to degrade and be destroyed all together. This results in the gums separating from the teeth which can lead to teeth loss and other severe health problems. There are several subcategories within this type of disease. However all have one thing in common, it is very serious and needs to be treated by a dental care professional as soon as possible.
