What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.

HERE ARE SOME WARNING SIGNS THAT CAN SIGNAL A PROBLEM:

  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Red, swollen, tender gums
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste
  • Permanent teeth those are loose or separating
  • Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
  • Any change in the fit of partial dentures

What is TMJ Face Pain?

TMJ- is the shortened name given to the joint just in front of your ears. This joint is a hinge that allows your lower jaw to move in all directions. This joint can become infected or inflamed and cause severe pain.

A laser can be used on any face muscle to remove the tenderness experienced – even where a painkiller does not help.
