Gum disease can range in severity, and can be brought on by many different elements. Maintaining proper gum health is not only crucial to keeping a great smile, it’s also vital for preventing other serious health issues. Untreated gum disease can lead to tooth decay, tooth loss, and according to some experts—an increased risk for heart attack!
Using the latest technology, Dr. Roland Bryan treats gum disease both preventatively and palliatively—after gums have become infected.
The most common gum diseases are gingivitis and periodontitis. Both types are harmful to gum tissues, teeth, roots, the jawbone, and other mouth tissues. Symptoms can include reduced gum lines, gum tenderness, plaque buildup, and increased space between teeth. When untreated, gum disease leads to tooth decay and loss.
The best way to prevent gum disease is through regular cleanings. If you’re already suffering from these symptoms, don’t worry. There are a range of treatment options available!
