Non-Surgical Gum Treatments
The gums, ligaments, and bone supporting your teeth are referred to as periodontium. When the periodontium is not healthy, it jeopardizes the stability of the teeth and your general health. We now know that unhealthy gums effect cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Signs of unhealthy periodontium (gum disease) may be as follows: gums that are red and bleed easily, persistent bad breath, gums that are pulled away from the tooth, loose teeth, and changes in the position or bite of the teeth. With the proper care it may be possible to return them to a healthy state.
