Periodontal disease affects your gums and the jawbone supporting your teeth. It is caused by plaque, a sticky residue created by bacteria as it attacks your teeth. If plaque is not brushed and flossed away, it turns into calculus, a hard coating that can cause bleeding gums and loose teeth that can eventually fall out. Contact Dr. Jeffrey M. Ellis for a FREE consultation and to learn about saving your teeth.

  • Poor or irregular oral hygiene

  • Dental neglect

  • Teeth grinding

  • Chronic stress

  • A poor diet

What Increases Your Chances of Periodontal or Gum Disease?

  • Certain medications

  • Pregnancy

  • Diabetes and other medical issues

  • Tobacco use

  • Genetic predisposition

All it takes to diagnose your condition is a visit to Dr. Jeffrey M. Ellis. A periodontal probe measures the gaps around your teeth. Deeper gaps that bleed increase the chances of a severe condition.
