Gum disease, which can more technically be known as periodontal disease, is a destructive and often unnoticed degenerative condition. Primarily caused by bacteria found in the plaque over one’s teeth and gums, the bacteria inflame and infect the gum tissues. This can cause the gumline to recede and eventually result in bone and tooth lose.
Treatment depends on the severity of your condition, and if necessary, our dentist can work in conjunction with other oral health professionals to ensure you get the treatments that are best for you. These various gum disease treatments could include additional professional dental cleanings, improved at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic treatment, or scaling and root planing (deep cleanings).
