Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease range from gingivitis to periodontitis:

- Gingivitis: simple gum inflammation, a mild form of gum disease that can usually be treated by daily brushing, flossing and by performing a regular dental cleaning at our clinics.

- Periodontitis: a serious gum disease, if not treated can result in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. The teeth may eventually become loose and have to be removed.

How do you know if you have gum disease?

If you have any of the following symptoms:
- red or swollen gums
- persistent bad breath
- bleeding and tender gums
- painful chewing
- sensitive and loose teeth
