GUM DISEASE TREATMENT
Periodontal (Gum) Treatment
This condition is caused by infection but it is totally preventable. It progress from inflammation of the external gums (gingivitis) accompanied by bleeding; the first sign of it, and progresses to the periodontium (the supporting tooth ligaments and bone) such that those structures are ultimately destroyed and teeth are lost. Suitable treatment halts the progress of this disease.
Appropriate home care such as electric toothbrushes, sonicare pressure jet appliances and detailed instructions are part of the preventive plan as well as in surgery maintenance on a regular basis. An interesting sideline to this dental condition is it is now associated with heart disease. Is this another good reason?
