Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss your teeth? You may have gingivitis, a condition which precedes periodontitis, or gum disease. Gum disease develops from the infection of gum tissue. Plaque can inflame the gums in early stages, causing them to bleed easily. As the infection progresses, pockets between teeth form, loosening them or causing them to fall out. You can treat periodontitis at Premier Dental Care in Palmdale and Lancaster, CA. Dr. Karim Naguib and his team have experience in treating gum disease and other dental concerns.

Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment
Schedule a visit with Dr. Naguib and his professional team twice a year to help maintain and check up on the health of your teeth and gums. If you have noticed your gums bleeding, please schedule an appointment at our office for a check-up. Even if you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, it is important to catch gum disease early before the infection spreads and leads to more problems. Gum disease can be treated with antibacterial rinses, laser therapy, gum surgery, or scaling and root planing. Dr. Naguib will assess your teeth and gums before treatment in order to determine which option works best for you.
