Gum Disease Surgical and Non-surgical
You might not have known it, but you’ve been battling gum disease your whole life. Brushing, flossing, using that Water Pic® you got for Christmas; it’s all been an effort to keep your gums from going bad. If you’re reading this, then maybe you lost the battle. Your gums have receded, your mouth is in pain, and your teeth are in jeopardy. You need to get this fixed.
Gum recession occurs when the tooth’s surrounding gum tissue wears away or begins to pull back. Receding gums can cause small pockets between your teeth and the gums. This space invites bacteria to build up, and then the dominoes start to fall. The gums get worse, making the pain worse, damaging your tooth more, making the gums get worse, and on-and-on.
The good news is that you’re on our website, reading this page. Help is just a click away.
