“When they were all done I was like, wow”
“I had some teeth pulled on the bottom, also I had three implants. He did my implants after my dentures, I said I don’t have any teeth on the bottom, and he said I can do implants. It’s like getting brand new teeth, it’s like getting your teeth back, the ones that you lost. They actually look better than your teeth, they’re so nice, I love my implants. The best part was not having the pain you’d think about when you’re getting a screw coming all the way through. I didn’t feel anything, I’m telling you, not a thing. When they were all done I was like, wow, they look amazing, they look really good.”

Gingivitis Vs. Periodontal Disease
Know the differences between gingivitis and periodontal disease in Westlake Village.
Many speak of gingivitis and gum disease in Westlake Village as if they are the same thing, when that’s not quite true. Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums, while gum disease, or periodontal disease, is an inflammation and infection within the gums. This is what makes gingivitis and early stages of gum disease reversible or treatable. With gingivitis the bacteria, plaque and tartar under the gums just becomes irritated, red and swollen. However, without the proper care your gingivitis will turn into severe inflammation and the bacteria build up will cause an infection in the gum tissue. If the infection isn’t treated it can
cause bone loss and even loss of your teeth. The most important thing to remember when it comes to treating periodontal disease is that you are treating the rest of your body as well. The bacteria present under your gums can get into your blood stream and increase your risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes. If you have any signs of inflammation such as red, swollen, bleeding or tender gums, you may have developing gingivitis in Westlake Village. Give us a call at (805) 495-7212 today so we can help reverse your inflammation and prevent gum disease.
