Gum Disease: Periodontitis

Even with a thorough dental hygiene routine, avoiding gum disease is not always possible. Daily at home brushing and flossing compliments regular in office preventative care.

Periodontal disease can range from gingivitis to advanced periodontal infections. Gingivitis is the most common form of gum disease and may have symptoms such as swelling and bleeding in the gums.
