Gum Disease Treatment

When bacterial plaque builds up on your teeth, it can lead to red, inflamed gums (gingivitis). Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth and are beginning to recede are signs of gingivitis.

If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to a more serious condition called periodontitis. With periodontal disease/periodontitis, you may lose teeth due to loss of supporting bone structure.

Seeing a hygienist regularly will help keep your teeth healthy and prevent these oral diseases from occurring. Having unhealthy gums and teeth can lead to other health issues, especially for those who have existing problems like diabetes, osteoporosis and respiratory illnesses.
