Gum Disease Treatment

gum-diseaseGum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss, and has also been linked to other health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. The first signs are red, swollen gums that bleed easily when you brush and floss.

This is often a sign of gingivitis, which if not treated, can progress to periodontitis, a severe form of gum disease that can cause bone deterioration and tooth loss. An effective oral hygiene routine will prevent the progression of gum disease and improve your overall oral health.
