Gum disease, or periodontal disease as it is sometimes referred to, is a common health problem that is estimated to affect up to 50% of the adult population. The disease destroys the healthy gum attachment to the roots of the teeth and this leads to gum infection, gum recession, bone loss around the teeth and halitosis (bad breath) and gingivitis. If left untreated it can lead to tooth loosening, drifting and ultimately tooth loss. However, if caught early enough, gum disease can be completely reversed so it pays to take action if you think you may have a problem.
- Comprehensive oral hygiene treatment to address the problem
- Gum disease can be reversed if caught quickly
