Gum disease affects one out of every five adults.
Did you know the leading cause of tooth loss in adults is gum disease? The symptoms begin with gums that recede away from teeth, swollen, red or bleed easily. Caused by bacteria found in plaque, gum disease is an infection in the gums. This infection isn’t limited to just the mouth, it also is a contributing cause of heart disease, diabetes, strokes and pre-term birth.
While daily brushing, flossing and regular cleanings can help prevent gum disease from occurring, when left untreated, periodontal therapy is recommended. Periodontal therapy is a non-surgical method of gum disease treatment that achieves results without the discomfort of traditional treatment.
