Gum Disease: Protection and Treatment solutions

Did you know that gum disease affects almost 50% of adults? Gum disease, or periodontal disease, does not only negatively affect your oral health, it can also harm your general health and wellness.

What is important to know is that, with the proper dental habits such as brushing and flossing twice per day, and routine dental exams and cleanings, your chances of this disease decrease dramatically.

If you are someone who has already been diagnosed with periodontal disease, you want to make sure you see your dentist to treat it as soon as possible.

Common treatments are non-surgical and include:

Antibiotic Treatment – Antibiotics can help manage the bacterial infection caused by periodontal disease.

Scaling – This process gets rid of the tartar and bacteria from under the gums and on the surface of the teeth.

Root Planing – This involves smoothing out the root surfaces to reduce or prevent more tartar accumulation.

For more serious circumstances, surgical treatment may possibly be needed.
