Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults. Do you know how to recognize the signs of gum disease?
In this video, you’ll learn about the signs and symptoms of a periodontal condition. The first stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis and usually presents with mild bleeding when brushing and flossing. Untreated gingivitis can lead to early periodontitis, in which the bacterium eats away the bone and surrounding tissues.
While gingivitis can be reversed with proper oral hygiene, only a NYC dentist can treat moderate periodontal disease. Contact our emergency dentists with Central Park West Dentistry to schedule a consultation.
