Treating and Preventing Gum Disease

Gum disease can occur if excessive bacteria known as plaque, builds up and hardens on your teeth. As a result,  your gums can become red, swollen and start to bleed when eating or brushing your teeth. If left untreated, these symptoms can also unfortunately lead to tooth loss.

Most cases of gum disease can be detected during a dental check up or examination and by takings x-rays to spot any bone reduction. Professional dental cleaning and oral hygiene appointments can also aid in effectively controlling these issues and improve gum health.
