Periodontal treatment deals with the overall health of your teeth and takes preventative or active care of the overall health of your mouth. This specifically includes your gums, periodontal ligaments, and bones; with plaque accumulation being a common complaint.
Gum disease can lead to serious damage of the gums and bone support, and in a worst case scenario this can lead to tooth loss.
The most common periodontal diseases are gingivitis (an inflammation of the gums), and periodontitis (an inflammation in the bone or tissues of the teeth).
These diseases can be avoided by regular, meticulous brushing, annual visits to the dentist, and a reduction in smoking, sugary foods, or dark staining liquids such as red wine and coffee. Luckily, the issues can be easily addressed at the first signs of mouth pain, bleeding teeth, or painful gums. By acting quickly, you can avoid worsening any damage to your gums and mouth.
