What is gum disease and how do you treat it?
Gum disease is a progressive, inflammatory condition that can severely damage your gums over time and even cause you to lose your teeth. During your hygiene appointment, we will review the causes of gum disease and give you advice on how to prevent it.
If you currently have gum disease, our goal will be to stop it from progressing further. A number of different treatment techniques are available, and we will discuss our recommendations, which will vary depending on the severity of your condition.
