Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease, commonly called gum disease, is one of the main causes of tooth loss.
It affects the gums and the bones that support the teeth.
In gingivitis, a mild case of gum disease, plaque builds up on teeth causing swelling on the gum tissues surrounding them.
At this point, only your gums are affected. If left untreated, it may lead to a worse form of gum disease called periodontitis.
One of the early signs of gum disease is seeing blood in your saliva or on your toothbrush when brushing your teeth.
Periodontitis is a condition in which the gums and supporting structures of the teeth are inflamed, leading to receding gums.
If left ignored, itt can develop into more severe conditions like bone loss.
