GUM DISEASE THERAPY
Gum disease, or gingivitis and periodontal disease, is an infection in the gum tissues and the bone that keep your teeth in place.
It is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss.
If diagnosed early, it can be treated and stopped from progressing.
There is evidence that bacteria in the mouth, which are associated with gum disease, may be linked to heart disease, artery blockages, stroke and diabetes. Following your initial examination and X-rays, Dr. Atwal will assess the goals of the periodontal treatment so as to control the cause (bacterial plaque) and the risk factors, repair the damage present (pockets) and restore and maintain your gums in a healthy state.
