Gum/Periodontal Disease

Gum/Peridontal Disease left untreated can often lead to the loss of teeth due to the destruction and deterioration of tissue that surrounds those teeth.

This is an inflammatory disease that affects the gums and can often be detected through the early symptoms of red, swollen or enlarged gums. This can be described as the initial stages of periodontal disease, also known as gingivitis. Through effective daily dental hygiene and regular visits to your dental practitioner, gingivitis can easily prevented and treated.

Gingivitis left untreated can lead to periodontal disease, which is associated with greater symptoms and possible consequences such gum and bone recession, thus leading towards the loss of one’s teeth.
