Did you know that 64.7 million adults have periodontal disease? It’s true. Commonly referred to as gum disease, this infection of your tissues that surround and support your teeth can be a scary thing. Not only is it extremely common, it is also usually painless, so you might not even know that you have it. Furthermore, it can lead to some serious consequences and is a major cause of tooth loss in adults.
If you are one of the millions of adults suffering from periodontal disease, don’t worry, non-surgical periodontal therapy can help stop this infection in its tracks. Using non-evasive techniques, such as scaling and root planing, to carefully clean, remove plaque and tartar from deep periodontal pockets, and smooth the tooth root to remove bacterial toxins are some of the most effective ways to fight gum disease.
