Gum Disease
Gum Disease...Can Be Helped At Machias Dental Care. The American Dental Association says that over 75-80% of all adults, even in the Machias, Calais and Bangor area, have or will have some form of gum disease.

Gum disease, or more correctly called \"periodontal disease\", is a bacterial infection in the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It can be divided into several categories.

The first stage is called \"gingivitis\" and is characterized by gum tissue that is red, puffy, and bleeds easily when touched with a toothbrush, floss or dental instrument.

The second, third, and fourth stages are initial, moderate, and advanced \"periodontal disease\", respectively. These stages are different from gingivitis because the infection has destroyed the bone supporting the teeth, causing eventual tooth loss. At Machias Dental Care the treatment is more involved at these stages, usually consisting of a special cleaning with anesthesia and sometimes gum surgery.

Please call Machias Dental Care at 207 255-8601 for a complete evaluation of your potential gum disease.
