7 Causes Of Gum Disease And What To Do About It

When we look at beautiful smiles, healthy gums send out a message of health and youth, and this can be achieved by following an oral regimen and using gum disease treatment techniques if necessary.

If gum disease is left untreated and it progresses, it can develop into a more severe form of gingivitis called periodontitis. At this stage, teeth can become so loose that surgery or tooth extraction is necessary. The good news is you can avoid that altogether with a strong at-home hygiene routine and regular visits to our practice.

Suspicious? What are the ways you can tell if you have developed gum disease?

Have you noticed blood on your toothbrush or in the toothpaste you spit out after cleaning your teeth? Perhaps your gums bleed when you eat. Or maybe you have really bad breath all the time (also known as halitosis). These are all signs of gum disease.
