|The best way to treat gum disease is in its earliest stages. The treatment needed when you spot gum disease early is not very difficult and is usually successful.
The problem is that to treat gum disease early, you have to recognize it. The best way to do that is to know what the early signs of gum disease are.
What a Dental Professional Sees
A common recommendation for good oral health is to see your dental professional twice a year. There are many reasons for this including watching for the signs of early gum disease. Our dental professionals have the tools and the knowledge to spot gum disease before you do.
The tools allow us to probe in place you cannot see. X-rays allow us to see signs of other problems that can lead to gum disease. Even though they have more tools, they are still looking for some of the same things that you can look for.
Signs of Gum Disease
When gum disease progresses, the symptoms become more obvious. Loose teeth and lost teeth are signs that will stand out, but they do not happen in the early stages. Instead, you should watch for these signs.
The best way to avoid problems with gum disease is by catching it early. The best way to do that is through regular visits to our dental professionals.
