Treatment for Gum Disease
Gum disease is one of the most common oral health issues which can pose a risk to your teeth, gums and bones. At Dentists on the Square, we have examined countless patients who have suffered from gum disease, despite brushing and flossing every day. There are several causes of gums becoming infected, but the most common reason is poor oral hygiene.
You may not even know you have gum disease until you begin to experience bleeding when brushing or have painful and swollen gums. The best way to avoid complications arising from gum disease is by learning to brush and floss correctly and attending all your routine checkups and general dentistry treatments with Dentists on the Square. We can provide you with the education needed to maintain your overall oral health.
