Periodontal Treatment in Pocatello, ID
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, can develop when bacteria builds below the gum line. Three out of four Americans have some level of periodontal disease, but only 3 out of 100 will receive treatment before it’s too late!
Gum Disease Prevention
Gum disease treatment can be critical in early stages because it can often lead to more serious issues in your mouth as well as other parts of your body. Gum disease is a sneaky condition that is often painless until it progresses into the advanced stages of periodontitis, which is why regular dental checkups are important to maintain good oral health. Periodontitis is the leading reason for adult tooth loss. It also causes jawbone deterioration, gum recession, and a prematurely aged appearance.
There are two main phases of gum disease:
Gingivitis—the mildest form.
Periodontitis—the destructive form.
Early treatment of gingivitis is more comfortable and affordable than the surgical treatment of periodontitis.
