Treating Gum Disease Without Surgery

March 12th, 2015 → 4:57 pm @

Gum disease—known in medical parlance as “periodontal” disease—is caused by bacterial infections between the teeth and gums. Symptoms of the disease include bleeding, inflammation, halitosis, and loosened teeth. There are various factors that lead to gum disease, including age, genetics, bad dieting, and poor oral hygiene.

Gum disease is treated through periodontal therapy, a non-surgical form of treatment that involves root cleaning of the periodontal pockets to remove tartar and plaque. Once treated, your gums should undergo routine cleanings to keep the disease from returning. Maintenance of your oral hygiene is also important to prevent recurrences of gum disease.
