What Is Gum Disease?

Gum disease or periodontal disease is an infection that damages the gum tissue and bone that are surrounding your teeth. The food and beverages we take on a daily basis during the day linger on our teeth, creating a sticky thin layer known as plaque. Plaques left on your teeth ultimately harden into a substance termed tartar. Plaque and tartar act like magnets for bacteria, and if you don’t clean the bacteria through proper flossing, brushing, and regular dental cleanings, a gum infection can eventually develop.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

For several years, the only treatment available for advanced gum disease was gum surgery. But dental technology has progressed a lot, and therefore, nowadays treatments for gum disease have become completely non-invasive, requiring no surgery at all.
