How to Treat Gum Disease

Periodontal, or gum disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States.  Because gums are so essential to oral health, it is important to understand how poor hygiene can lead to periodontal disease.  Take a look at this video to see the importance of preventing gum disease with regular dental checkups.

Gum disease is most often the result of a buildup of debris and plaque deposits in the space between the gums and teeth.  During a dental cleaning, a specialist will use a set of precision dental tools to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums in spaces where regular brushing and flossing does not reach.
