Gum Disease Treatment
What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is also known as periodontitis. Symptoms include bleeding, sensitivity, painful and discoloured gums.
It’s caused by a lack of attention to dental hygiene. Maintaining simple habits like regular brushing and flossing dramatically reduce the risk of getting gum disease.
If you experience any of the symptoms of gum disease, early treatment is essential.
