Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease occurs when swollen unhealthy gums start to pull away from your teeth and form pockets, allowing infection-causing plaque and tartar to accumulate. The results of this disease are much more than just swollen bleeding gums and bad breath. When left untreated, periodontal disease can eventually lead to loss of teeth, an unsightly smile, and other more serious health problems.
Luckily, periodontal treatments can stop periodontal disease from advancing and reverse the damage that’s already done so that your mouth can be restored to its healthy and beautiful state.
Some of the most common periodontal treatments include:
- Scaling & root planing
- Soft tissue grafts
- Bone grafting
- Periodontal surgery
- And more!
