Treatment for Healthy Gums

Most forms of gum disease involve the infection and erosion of gums. Sometimes, it spreads below the gums and infects the bone that supports the teeth. Gum disease ranges from a mild condition called gingivitis which is easily reversible, to severe periodontitis which requires a more comprehensive treatment.

Why Gum Disease Should Be Treated at The Earliest?

Swelling and bleeding gums are caused by the accumulation of plaque and tartar around the teeth. Over a period of time, it may cause severe destruction of gum tissue and underlying supporting bone, resulting in bone loss and loosening of teeth. Gingivitis (inflammation of gums), if not treated in time, could lead to periodontitis (inflammation of gums, bone, and surrounding tissues that support teeth). There are various surgical and nonsurgical ways to treat gum diseases and restore the gums to a healthy state and also prevent further destruction of gums and supporting bone. Our periodontist will help you solve all your gum problems.
