Periodontal Treatment

Gum disease affects many Americans and can lead to serious dental and health issues if left untreated. When gum disease first begins, it can be easily treated. One of the best things you can do to avoid gum disease is keep up on good dental hygiene at home. Flossing and brushing regularly and keeping up on your dental check-ups is the best way to avoid gum disease and catch signs of gum disease early. The early stages of gum disease are not painful. This is why regular dental check-ups are vital in catching early warning signs to avoid symptoms from worsening.

A mild case of periodontal disease is known as gingivitis. At this stage, it can be easily reversed without extensive treatment.
