Swollen Gums?

If Your Gums Are Swollen And Sore, Call Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry

If you are a worried Alexandria resident experiencing inflamed gums or an aching tooth, you’re are not alone.

About one third of U.S. adults are affected by tooth decay, according to the CDC, and gum disease plagues one in seven people age 35 to 40.1 Don’t ignore these symptoms, call Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry today at 703-360-5881 for immediate treatment.

At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry we take gum disease, sometimes called gingivitis, seriously because left untreated it can lead to loss of bone and tissue that support the teeth.

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease. You will know you have it if your gums bleed easily and look red and swollen. If this condition is not reversed it can lead to periodontitis. With this condition your gums become loose and separate from the teeth forming cavities that can become infected. This can spread to the bone supporting the tooth. If this is damaged, the tooth can be lost. (If you have already lost a tooth to gum disease, ask us about dental implants.)

At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry we recommend daily brushing and flossing and regular dental cleanings to help combat gingivitis. Our team has been treating gum disease and other dental problems for Virginia patients since 1983.

If you want your teeth to feel fresh and bright, come in for a cleaning and check-up. Don’t become a statistic, prevent gingivitis by treating your teeth and gums with the TLC they deserve. (After all, they work pretty hard for you day in and day out.)

My name is Drs. Geren & Mady and my staff and I at Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry offer quality general and cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry , dental implants, and
Invisalign.

Take care of your beautiful smile by calling Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry today. Family Dentistry
