Caring for your gums
Your gums are one of the most important structures that support your teeth. It is important to take good care of them to avoid gum related diseases like the very common Periodontal Disease.
During your comprehensive first visit, the specialists will assess your gingiva, plaque, and calculus levels, as well as diagnosing your general gum health.
Periodontitis is one of the many serious gum diseases that affects the tissue around a tooth, leading to tooth loss and decay. It’s an infection of the gums and bone that support the teeth. It is usually a chronic inflammatory disease that can go on for years before you even notice any symptoms. This condition, in which the underlying bone and gum tissues are attacked in an infectious manner, can result in tooth loss.
