Treatment of Gum Disease
Gum disease can lead to problems when left untreated. However, if dealt with early on, the effects are reversible.
Regular check-ups and teeth cleanings from your dentist can remove the tartar that causes gingivitis and diagnose problems early on.
If gingivitis advances to periodontitis, gum tissue will not respond to brushing and regular oral hygiene. Oral surgery may be required.
