Gum disease – aka “periodontal disease” aka “periodontitis”– is the most common reason behind adult tooth loss. The number one reason people lose their teeth is not because of cavities - its because of gum disease. Let's talk about how to treat gum disease!
Gum disease is preventable, but only if you catch it in the earliest stage of gingivitis. Once more aggressive periodontal disease kicks in, you’ll require professional treatment to prevent tooth loss.
The severity of your gum disease can put your health at risk. As medical issues and periodontitis go hand in hand, it’s crucial to treat them together instead of as two separate issues.
Treating gum disease starts at home with good daily brushing and flossing, followed up with professional cleanings with your hygienist.
