Periodontal or gum treatment is needed when the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth are affected.
Gingivitis is usually the beginning sign of gum disease. Left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis and is the leading reason for tooth loss in adults.
Common signs of periodontitis are bleeding gums and bad breath.
Often gum disease goes unnoticed and the longer you wait to receive treatment the worse the gums become. Eventually teeth can become loose and are prone to abscess, at which point, it may be too late to save them.
At Dentaire Turner, we use a combination of treatments to cure the condition based on your situation.
These involve medications, oral hygiene tools, restorations/splints, deep cleaning and surgical treatments.
