At Swansea Dental we take periodontal disease very seriously. An infection of the gums that can spread and cause tooth loss and many other problems, this disease should be treated immediately. Thankfully, periodontal disease is easily preventable with regular at home brushing and flossing accompanied by twice yearly trips to the dentist.
What to Expect at an Appointment
At your regular hygiene appointment, the dentist will check your gums for signs of infection. If a problem is found the dentist will recommend the proper course of action. Thorough at-home hygiene and regular professional cleanings can stave off most instances of periodontal disease by not allowing plaque to build up under the gum line.
