Gum treatment is the treatment of active gum and jaw bone disease. Gum disease treatment can slow or stop the progression of gum disease. Since there are different stages of gum disease (from gingivitis to advanced periodontitis), there are different levels of treatment. In some cases, the patient may be referred to a specialist.
When you think about dental health, your focus is likely to be on preventing cavities in your teeth. But it’s important to pay attention to your gums, too. Your gums play a major role not only in your dental health, but in your overall well-being.
