Gum Treatment

Keeping your gums healthy is crucial for your overall dental health – along with your jawbones the gums hold teeth firmly in place and protect below-the-gum line tooth surfaces that lack the protective enamel. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums, caused by a buildup of plaque – a sticky form of bacteria that forms on the teeth. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, but because the condition is often virtually pain-free, many patients do not realize they suffer from it.
