You should never ignore the signs and symptoms of gum disease. Receding gum lines, painful chewing, routine bleeding while brushing and flossing, hypersensitive teeth, chronic bad breath, sores on the inside of your mouth, and other symptoms may point to gingivitis or even the more advanced stage of gum disease called periodontitis.
Laser periodontal treatment is by far the most advanced way to treat advanced periodontal disease. This method of treatment has been on the scene since 1994 - powering a quarter century of dental innovation.
Gum recession poses many risks to your oral health over the long term, and yet, it's not uncommon for those who are aware of ongoing gumline recession to delay getting treatment for years.
Your gums are the first line of defense against infection of your tooth roots, which can quickly lead to tooth loss. Furthermore, periodontal health is a barometer of overall body health since gum infections can spread to other parts of the body and other health problems often cause gum problems.
Your gums are an important part of your body and of your life. Good gum health helps maintain good oral health and overall health - it's as simple as that. And yet, many take little thought of the state of their gums until something begins to go wrong.
