Gum Disease Symptoms & Treatment
Because the primary cause of gum disease is plaque, any type of gum disease treatment requires good daily care at home, in conjunction with regular visits to your preferred dental practitioner.
You may have gum disease if you are experiencing:
- Bleeding or receding gums
- Inflammation around your teeth
- Persistent bad breath
The severity of gum disease ranges from a mild type known as gingivitis to the more serious type called periodontitis. The most severe cases of gum disease can result in tissue damage, bone loss, and even tooth loss.
